LucasFilm Games have announced they are collaboration with developer Ubisoft ‘to develop a new, story-driven, open-world Star Wars game!’
This news follows the announcement that Lucasfilm Games will be “the official identity for all gaming titles from Lucasfilm, a name that encompasses the company’s rich catalog of video games and its eye toward the future” – the company has announced a new Indiana Jones game.
The announcement comes as part of an exciting new strategy for star wars games.
“We’ve got a lot of stuff we’re ready to start sharing with fans,”
Lucasfilm Games VP Douglas Reilly tells StarWars.com,
“because we’ve been working quietly behind the scenes for a while now, waiting for this moment.”
And by “this moment,” Reilly is referring to a new direction and era for Star Wars and Lucasfilm gaming overall, as Lucasfilm Games is now opening the doors to developers that want to come play in the galaxy far, far away.
“We’re looking to work with best-in-class teams that can make great games across all of our IP. We’ve got a team of professionals here at Lucasfilm Games who can work with the developers, shape the stories, shape the creative, shape the games, to make them really resonate with fans and deliver across a breadth of platforms, genres, and experiences so that all of our fans can enjoy the IPs that they know and love,”
Case in point, the huge news that Lucasfilm Games and Ubisoft are collaborating on a new story-driven, open-world Star Wars game. It’s a genre long-requested by fans, and will come to life via Massive Entertainment, Ubisoft’s critically-acclaimed studio based in Malmö, Sweden. “
Continuing the relationship that resulted in the reinvigorated Battlefront series, the critically-acclaimed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and multiplayer hit Star Wars: Squadrons, Electronic Arts will also play a big role in the future of Star Wars gaming.
“We’re really proud of the games we have created with EA,”
“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.”
