EA Lays Out Their Star Wars Plans For The Next Three Years

EA Lays Out Their Star Wars Plans For The Next Three Years

EA is working on more Star Wars games. I'm shocked, shocked I tell you.

DICE and Motive (the company founded by former Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell producer Jade Raymond) are working on a new Battlefront for 2017. Visceral's Star Wars game, headed up by former Uncharted maestro Amy Hennig, is coming in 2018.

    But are Bioware working on something other than Old Republic? God I hope so...

      Look down 5 stories.

        I was going to say that too, but I think he's hoping BioWare are working on a Star Wars game that isn't The Old Republic. Like Knights of the Old Republic 3 or a new BioWare Star Wars RPG that isn't a MMO.
        I really want them to announce a spiritual successor to Knights of the Old Republic set between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back that doesn't feature and Jedi. That or a new MMO that's based on Star Wars Galaxies instead of World of Warcraft. I know those are both extremely long shots but I can dream. Right now I'd settle for them adapting The Old Republic into a balanced single player experience.

          I'd say unlikely. EA will want to be putting minimum effort into star wars games, because they so far, sell regardless. Bioware is helping maintain/further the Mass Effect IP, which EA own and can never be taken away from them.

    That's a really well made video, but it doesn't do a very good job of showing their plans. I mean they talked about how magical working on Star Wars games is for 3 and a half minutes. Just seeing the line of studio names under the Star Wars logo is awesome but I was hoping for something with a bit more substance.

    EA must realise we hate them more for putting so much effort into making these shitty PR videos and like zero effort into their movie tie-in games.

    So I guess what's left of Criterion has been drafted into working on Star Wars too now rather than that first person extreme sports title they were working on a few years back.

      Could be both... might be an extreme speeder bike racing sim.
