There will be more Star Wars video games from Electronic Arts, an interview with Douglas Reilly on the official Star Wars website suggests. According to Reilly, a number of projects are currently in progress. So far there have been no official announcements from EA, but the publisher had already made it clear a few months ago that the use of the Star Wars license would be intensified.
There are no details on the new Star Wars games from Electronic Arts. Recently, however, the French publisher Ubisoft announced that a Open world game based on the Star Wars license in the making, which will be implemented by The Division developers Massive Entertainment. The fact that Electronic Arts is still working on games based on the mighty franchise is no surprise given previous announcements, but now there is a little more certainty that there are actually several projects.
Lucasfilm Games: Partnership with EA has never been stronger
As Lucasfilm Games Vice President Douglas Reilly also affirms, the partnership with Electronic Arts has never been stronger. "We're really proud of the games we've made with EA," Reilly told Starwars.com. Since 2012, Electronic Arts has had an exclusive license agreement with Disney to use the Star Wars license. Because Ubisoft is now also playing along, it ends a kind of era.
Nevertheless, Disney and EA will continue the cooperation. And this time the Lucasfilm Games brand is also involved, as it is returning and re-appearing as a player in the games segment. As a result, people seem to want to position themselves more focused - and more diversified - in the video game segment. The latest cooperation with Ubisoft underpins a possibly future-oriented strategy in the use of IPs - and the granting of licenses to third parties.
As Reilly stated in the interview, several previously unannounced Star Wars video games are in the pipeline at Electronic Arts. "While we don't have many details to share at the moment, there are a number of projects underway with the talented teams at EA," said Lucasfilm's Games Vice President. One of the new games could well be a sequel to Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, which is believed to be in development at Respawn Entertainment. Given the good sales figures for the action adventure, that would be quite realistic, especially since it has already been released several times Has given cluesthat indicate a next title.
Who thought with games like Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, Star Wars: Squadrons and Star Wars: Battlefront 2 the best times for Star Wars games would already have passed, he could be very wrong. "This is just the beginning of what I believe will be a very exciting year for Lucasfilm Games," said Douglas Reilly.
