Though Lucasfilm is clearly shopping around the Star Wars franchise to see what other game developers (like Quantic Dream and Ubisoft) can do with it, that doesn’t mean it’s soured on its deal with Electronic Arts.
Following the success of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, the company has confirmed that it has struck a deal with EA and the developers of the game, Respawn Entertainment, to work on three all new projects!
The first one is indeed a sequel to Jedi: Fallen Order, with God of War III director Stig Asmussen on board. It’s currently in production, with a potential announcement set to take place sometime this summer, possibly during an EA Play presentation.
As for the second project, it’ll be a first-person shooter, fronted by Peter Hirschmann. Though details weren’t given, hopefully it’ll have the same amount of profound energy as the Titanfall games. (And it’ll fill the void considering a third game in that series isn’t in development just yet.)
As for the third game, it’ll be a strategy game co-developed by the new team at Bit Reactor.
Details are very scarce, but it should be a hit with fans of the genre.
Call of Duty veteran and Respawn head Vince Zampella will keep watch over all three projects as they continue in development. “We are huge fans of Star Wars here at Respawn Entertainment and we’re thrilled to work with Lucasfilm Games on new titles that we have wanted to make for years,” Zampella explained. “If you want to make great Star Wars games, you should come join us on our journey.”
Indeed, the Force is strong with this franchise.
