EA and Lucasfilm Games have just confirmed that 3 major Star Wars titles are currently in the works at Respawn Entertainment. Among them is the highly-anticipated next chapter in the Star Wars Jedi franchise.
It is worth noting that EA and Lucasfilm have only confirmed the game to be the ‘next game in the Star Wars Jedi franchise’, which doesn’t mention it being a sequel to 2019’s Jedi Fallen Order.
Other projects include a new First-Person Shooter from Peter Hirschmann, Game Director of popular VR project from Respawn, Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond. Next is a Strategy Game via a publishing collaboration between Respawn and Bit Reactor, a newly formed studio from former XCOM developers.
EA and Lucasfilm Join Forces Again to Put Out 3 New Star Wars Games
Development on the next Jedi franchise game is currently underway, led by Game Director Stig Asmussen. The third game is a new Strategy title that will be led in development by Greg Foertsch, who has had a prolific body of work in the games industry. Bit Reactor will be taking the lead on this particular project.
“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 StarWars 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.”
The gaming community was pleasantly surprised when LucasFilm Games made a return to the big stage after being shut down in 2013. LucasFilm Games was confirmed by Disney to be the home to all future Star Wars games and it looks like their relationship with EA has been revived with the announcement of these 3 titles.
LucasArts and EA had a pretty fruitful relationship back in the day with back-to-back hits such as The Force Unleashed. So, it is definitely a major cause for excitement that LucasFilm Games will now be helming, along with Respawn, a new era of Star Wars games.
