EA Developing A 'Number Of' Unannounced Star Wars Games - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 13 January 2021 / 928 Views

It was announced today Lucasfilm Games has partnered with publisher Ubisoft and The Division developer Massive Entertainment on a new story-driven, open-world Star Wars game.

This is the first major Star Wars game not developed by Electronic Arts to be announced in about eight years. However, Disney will continue its partnership with EA as the developer has several Star Wars games in development.

"We’re really proud of the games we have created with EA," said Lucasfilm Games VP Douglas Reilly. "We will continue working with them and our relationship has never been stronger. While we may not have a lot of details to share at the moment, we’ve got a number of projects underway with the talented teams at EA."

EA Developing Several Star Wars Games

EA in recent years developed the Battlefront series, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and Star Wars: Squadrons.

Reilly added, "We try and help them leverage their passion, expertise, and idea by bringing our expertise around the IP, our ability to connect with other parts of Lucasfilm and The Walt Disney Company, to amplify that. To make it even bigger than they might imagine. We want to uncover the stories they’ve always imagined telling and make them resonate with our fans, and across the wider Star Wars galaxy."

Title fixed: EA developing a number of vehicles to sell loot boxes using the Star Wars license.

Eh, that may have been true at one point, but EA moved away from lootboxes on Star Wars now. Battlefront 2 had them at launch and they were replaced after massive backlash, with a more friendly microtransaction system that allowed players to buy the cosmetics they wanted directly with either in-game or real money (and the in-game credit earning speed was very generous). Jedi Fallen Order was singleplayer and had no microtransactions at all, while Star Wars Squadrons was both singleplayer and multiplayer with no microtransactions. I think it's safe to say that Jedi Fallen Order 2 will also be microtransaction free, while Battlefront 3 will probably move to a battlepass like system like most other mutiplayer shooters these days use, as opposed to a cosmetics store.

Fallen Order 2 is for sure in development. As for Battlefront, several actors that played characters in the Battlefront 2 campaign all posted on social media about mo-capping together, and the Battlefront 2 writer teased it was for a new EA game, presumably a campaign for Battlefront 3.
