Back in December it was announced that Quantic Dream is working on Star Wars: Eclipse, a narrative-driven video game set during the High Republic era of the galaxy far, far away, and now Electronic Arts has announced that it also has three new Star Wars games on the horizon.
Respawn Entertainment, the developer behind Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, is leading development and production on the new titles, which will include “the next game in the action adventure Star Wars Jedi series”, a brand new first-person shooter game (so long Battlefront), and a strategy title produced in collaboration with newly formed studio Bit Reactor.
“We are huge fans of Star Wars here at Respawn and we’re thrilled to work with Lucasfilm Games on new titles that we have wanted to make for years,” said Vince Zampella, Group GM and Founder of Respawn, who has been tasked with overseeing the new phase of the relationship between EA and Lucasfilm.
“We are excited to continue working with the superbly talented developers at Respawn,” said Douglas Reilly, VP, Lucasfilm Games. “They have demonstrated excellence in telling epic Star Wars stories along with best-in-class gameplay across different genres and we are looking forward to bringing more amazing experiences to the galaxy far, far away.”
“Building on the previous successes of our EA relationship, this new collaboration highlights the trust and mutual respect shared between the world-class teams at EA, Respawn and Lucasfilm Games,” said Sean Shoptaw, SVP, Walt Disney Games. “Fostered by the expertise and passion within each team, we will create thrilling original games for diverse audiences across the Star Wars galaxy.”
