EA and Respawn are teaming up for a new Star Wars game. It was just announced a few moments ago on the official EA site:
Today, I’m thrilled to be able to announce that EA and the talented team at Respawn Entertainment have expanded our relationship to include the development of an all-new 3rd person action adventure game set in the Star Wars universe. They join our other great studios – Visceral Games, DICE, Capital Games, BioWare, Motive and more – who are currently working on Star Wars projects. If you’re interested in joining us on this adventure, you can visit our Careers page – we have openings at Visceral and Motive and will be sharing more on these experiences soon.
This is the group that made Titanfall, a mech-style game that went from being a normal first shooter to guy in a giant robot suit. Does that mean we can expect an awesome AT-ST game? Probably too early to guess, but I’d take it! I believe there’s another Star Wars game coming before this one sometime next year from Amy Henning and Visceral.
The future of Star Wars for gamers looks bright! I will talk to our video game expert friends and we’ll discuss the possibilities on the next episode of “Now, This is Podcasting!”
Head over and read the full announcement letter.
