Just when you thought Star Wars games were doomed after Disney shut down LucasArts and fired around 200 people back in April and causing The two Star Wars games in development to be haulted— Star Wars: 1313 and Star Wars: First Assault, this happens.
Yes, the Mickey Mouse organisation and EA have joined forces in a new multi-year exclusive licensing agreement to develop and publish globally new games based on Star Wars characters and storylines.
“This agreement demonstrates our commitment to creating quality game experiences that drive the popularity of the Star Wars franchise for years to come,” said John Pleasants, Co-President of Disney Interactive.
“Collaborating with one of the world’s premier game developers will allow us to bring an amazing portfolio of new Star Wars titles to our fans around the world.”
“Every developer dreams of creating games for the Star Wars universe,” said EA Labels President Frank Gibeau. “Three of our top studios will fulfill that dream, crafting epic adventures for Star Wars fans. DICE and Visceral will produce new games, joining the BioWare team which continues to develop for the Star Wars franchise. The new experiences we create may borrow from films, but the games will be entirely original with all new stories and gameplay.”
