Every year, it seemed as if Electronic Arts had some Star Wars project waiting in the wings, like Jedi Fallen Order and Squadrons. But this year, it appears the franchise is taking the year off.
A week outside of its live streaming event, the company confirmed that no Star Wars games will be present. It noted that no new game will release this year, but it will focus on next year when it’s set to “share our vision for the Galaxy far, far away.”
The company recently lost exclusive rights to the franchise, when Lucasfilm opted to team up with Ubisoft and other companies for new Star Wars projects. But EA insists that their relationship is still quite strong, especially given the success of the last two games released in the series, as well as the continued growth of Battlefront II’s audience.
So what does that mean for the 40-minute EA Play broadcast taking place next week? Probably more focus on the company’s sports and mobile games, as well as a possible reveal of the much-rumored Dead Space reboot that’s currently in the works at EA Motive. Hopefully we’ll have some surprises as well, such as a first look at the new Skate game.
We’ll see what’s in store when the special takes place on July 22nd!
