Patrick Söderlund, Executive Vice President of EA Studios made a post today on EA.com with some very interesting news. It couldn’t have come at a better time than on Star Wars day, either. The short of it? They are working on a new 3rd person action-adventure Star Wars game. How cool is that? Here’s exactly what the post has to say about it.
“At EA right now, we have multiple studios building a variety of great Star Wars games spanning different genres. We are all united by our teams’ passion for Star Wars™ stories, characters, and adventures.
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.”
He goes on to add:
“Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with Vince Zampella and his group. Their obsession with making games that feel amazing has helped make Titanfall one of the most successful new game launches of this generation. And now, with a new team led by Stig Asmussen, we get to see what they can do when you combine that great attention to gameplay with the power of Star Wars.”
Then says there is no better time than now to be a Star Wars fan. You know, that seems to be a revolving theme these days and I, for one, have no complaints. I think it’s true, there is no better time to be a Star Wars fan. We’re seeing more wonderful, exciting Star Wars content than ever before. Are you excited for this new game?
