Disney gave fans a taste of what to expect from potential announcements throughout the campaign with an interactive poster on their site. Each week on the poster details different characters and memories from across the franchise. However, on December 14, Disney instead opted to lead with the image of a gamepad, hinting that a new Star Wars gaming announcement could be on the way.
While it’s not clear at this point whether the announcement will contain information about an already existing game or something completely new, there are currently a number of different developers working on games set in a very galaxy, very distant. As EA’s Star Wars games exclusivity deal comes to an end, it was announced earlier this year that Ubisoft is working on its own open-world Star Wars entry. In an interview with IGN earlier this year, Walt Disney Games Senior Vice President Sean Shoptaw explained that he and his team met Ubisoft Massive after Disney acquired Fox, which included a video game project. Avatar already in development.
While EA’s exclusivity deal on the Star Wars franchise is about to run out, that in no way suggests that the publisher is moving away from the universe. Earlier this year, EA CEO Andrew Wilson made it clear that Star Wars has been hugely profitable for the company and confirmed that it will continue to work on games set in the universe. One game we can seemingly count on from EA is a sequel to Jedi: Fallen Order.
Apart from that, Quantic Dream would also develop its own Star Wars game and it was revealed during Sony’s Playstation Showcase that Aspyr’s team is remaking Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic “from scratch” for consoles. modern. The KOTOR remake is slated for a console-exclusive release on PS5 at launch with a PC release, although at this time the game does not have an official release date.
Whether or not December 14th delves into any of the above projects or relates to something entirely different is a guess. For now, however, you can check out this week’s “Bring Home the Bounty” announcement which revealed a range of Star Wars Funko Pops, action figures, and clothing.
