Tom Henderson has compiled another report. The journalist this time has focused on the Star Wars brand, which, after EA lost “exclusive” rights to it, is supposed to be developed in multiple teams. This is all to allow at least two big games from the Star Wars universe to make their debut every calendar year.
The Insider said that so far 8 Star Wars-related games had been announced (see below for a list), with the main goal in Disney’s plan to launch one big-budget title from the universe every six months at most. Also included is one smaller Star Wars game per fiscal year.
All of the announced Star Wars games
- Game by Amy Hennig – Skydance Media
- Untitled FPS – Respawn Entertainment
- Star Wars open-world game – Ubisoft Massive
- Star Wars: Eclipse – Quantic Dream
- Knights of the Old Republic Remake – Saber Interactive
- Jedi: Survivor (sequel to Fallen Order) – Respawn Entertainment
- Star Wars: Hunters – Zynga
- Untitled Strategy Game – Respawn Entertainment
As can be seen from the list above, there are some games that should debut in the coming months (Jedi Survivor is said to hit the market by April 2023), while others are still to come in even 3 or 4 years. In this case, we should lean towards Star Wars Eclipse or Captain America from Amy Hennig.
Announcing productions from the Star Wars universe, which will not debut until several years from now, is supposed to show the new publishing format being adopted by the Disney corporation.
Tom Henderson also added that one more Star Wars game is expected to be revealed in the next few months, more specifically the one related to the popular series The Mandalorian.
It is reportedly in the “preliminary design phase.” The Insider speculates that there will still be smaller-budget productions, like Star Wars Squadrons from EA Motive.
