EA and Lucasfilm Games announced today that three new Star Wars titles are in the works at or in partnership with Respawn Entertainment.
These include the next title in the Star Wars Jedi franchise, that we knew was coming, as well as a strategy game and a first-person shooter.
At the head of the next Star Wars Jedi saga is Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order director Stig Asmussen, who previously worked on God of War titles before joining Respawn. Peter Hirschmann, the game director who served as executive producer of the original Star Wars Battlefront games, will lead the development of the first-person shooter.
A new studio run by game industry veteran Greg Foertsch, who has worked at Firaxis Games / 2K Games for 21 years, will create the new Star Wars strategy game, developed through a production partnership between Respawn and Bit Reactor, where he is the CEO. Respawn will produce the new Star Wars strategy game while Bit Reactor leads the development of the title.
“We are excited to continue working with the amazingly talented teams at Respawn,” said Douglas Reilly, VP of Lucasfilm Games in a joint press release. “They’ve shown excellence in telling epic Star Wars stories along with the best gameplay in different genres, and we look forward to bringing more immersive experiences to the universe. far away.”
Vince Zampella, team GM and founder of Respawn, will oversee this new phase of EA’s relationship with Lucasfilm.
“We’re die-hard Star Wars fans, and we’re excited to partner with Lucasfilm Games on new titles that we’ve wanted to make for years,” said Zampella. “If you want to make great Star Wars games, you should join us on our journey.”
