EA signs exclusive deal with Disney to publish future Star Wars games

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

Now that LucasArts is gone, who will stand up to create the Star Wars games of the future? The answer is Electronic Arts. EA announced that it has made a multi-year deal with Disney, current owner of the franchise, to publish future Star Wars games.

Under the terms of the agreement, EA now holds the reins for developing and publishing “new games based on Star Wars characters and storylines” internationally for “a core gaming audience.” The deal gives the publisher room to span all platforms and the “most popular” genres, with the exception of mobile, social and online social titles, the rights for which still belong to Disney.

“Every developer dreams of creating games for the Star Wars universe,” said EA Labels boss Frank Gibeau. “Three of our top studios will fulfill that dream, crafting epic adventures for Star Wars fans. DICE and Visceral will produce new games, joining the BioWare team which continues to develop for the Star Wars franchise.”

In a blog post on EA’s site, Gibeau elaborated, revealing that the three studios are already coming up with ideas for new titles. “These imaginative teams will make games that may borrow from films, but the games will be entirely original with all new stories,” he said.  “Powering it all will be the Frostbite 3 development engine – guaranteeing incredible graphic fidelity, environments and characters.”

Think the Star Wars franchise is in good hands at EA, or do you think Disney could have picked a better publisher?
