Walt Disney and Electronic Arts announced plans to develop and publish a new series of Star Wars game titles for the next few years.
“Every developer dreams of creating games for the Star Wars universe,” said EA Labels President 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. The new experiences we create may borrow from films, but the games will be entirely original with all new stories and gameplay.”
While Electronic Arts’ component teams handle the console market for Star Wars titles, Disney retains certain rights to the mobile, tablet, and online spheres. While the agreement will span years, no financial details were disclosed.
