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 the Vice President of Lucasfilm Games, Douglas Reilly, also affirmed, the partnership with Electronic Arts has never been stronger. “We're really proud of the games we've developed with EA,” Reilly said in an interview with Starwars.com. Electronic Arts has had an exclusive license agreement with Disney for the use of the Star Wars license since 2012. Because Ubisoft is now also playing, a kind of era is ending.
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, there are several previously unannounced video games for Star Wars in the pipeline at Electronic Arts. "Although we don't have many details to reveal at the moment, there are a number of projects going on with the talented teams at EA," confirmed the games vice at Lucasfilm. One of the new games could well be a sequel to Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, which is currently being developed presumably by Respawn Entertainment. That would be quite realistic in view of the good sales figures of the action adventure, especially since it has already been done 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 would have been the best times for Star Wars games already gone, he could be very wrong. “This is just the beginning of what I believe to be an exciting year for Lucasfilm Games,” said Douglas Reilly.
