Reports and interviews coming out say EA plans to model their Star Wars games after the Batman Arkham series. “We’re not trying to build a game that replicates the storyline of any particular film,” says EA boss.
EA is telling the fans we shouldn’t expect the upcoming Star Wars games to be based directly on the Star Wars films themselves. Instead, EA will approach it in the same way that Warner Bros. did with the Batman Arkham series.
Basically they are not planning to build a game that copies any particular storyline of the films. Instead, they are going to take the core roots of the IP and create an additional interactive experience that fans can enjoy.
This is interesting because it also gives the more flexibility with what they do with the games. Remember EA acquired the Star Wars license exclusively last May and it will last for at least 10 years. This means we could see several Star Wars games to come from this. That’s something fans can get excited about.
So far EA plans for DICE, Visceral and BioWare to develop Star Wars titles. We don’t have a lot of info yet on what these games will be but it’s safe to say we’ll be tracking any and all news on the topic and bringing it back to you as we find it.
