Star Wars Open-World Game Coming From Ubisoft

Star Wars Open-World Game Coming From Ubisoft

This new partnership means that EA's nearly eight-year Star Wars exclusivity deal has now come to an end.

Lucasfilm Games has yet to announce an official release date for the open-world Star Wars game.

But that doesn't mean EA's work with Lucasfilm Games is over. "And that's going to continue throughout the next year or so, where we're going to continue to announce projects that are more representative of the legacy of the old Lucasfilm Games that we're now trying to live up to". The Division developer, Ubisoft Massive will develop the new game.

ORIGINAL POST: After yesterday's announcement that Disney have created the Lucasfilm Games studio, and are working with Bethesda and Machine Games to create an Indiana Jones games, it's been revealed that Lucasfilm Games are also teaming up with Ubisoft to create an open-world game in the Star Wars universe.

This title, which is in early development, is set up at Ubisoft's Massive Entertainment studio in Malmö, Sweden, which has been responsible for turning out Tom Clancy's The Division 2, Far Cry 3, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, and the upcoming Avatar Project.

Numerous titles EA listed in its statement were featured in a sizzle reel announcing the new rebranding of Star Wars Games as Lucasfilm Games. It's not likely that this new game will follow in those same footsteps, but hopefully it will immerse players in the world of Star Wars in a satisfying way. According to WIRED, who broke this news, Massive are still recruiting for the project, so it's possible that we'll see Indiana Jones launch before the new Star Wars. We will continue working with them and our relationship has never been stronger. There was definitely a big step up with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, but the game still had some issues that displeased fans. "It's fun to imagine what the team at Massive can do within Star Wars by bringing their innovative spirit and their commitment to quality".

Since Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was such a big hit, there will nearly undoubtedly be a sequel that comes together before EA's deal ends in 2023.
