According to Kotaku EA just cancelled its single player open world Star Wars game which was in development at EA Vancouver since late 2017. EA had cancelled a previous iteration of a single player Star Wars game before when Visceral Games was closed. This is the second time now a single player (and open world) Star Wars game is nixed by EA.
EA went on record previously that they don’t really like open world (single player) games and prefer games as a service (i.e. Battlefront II that encourages you to pay a lot of money on top of what you pay for the initial game). So it seems that Star Wars will have to wait much, much longer before fans can have their Star Wars version of Red Dead Redemption 2, Spider-Man or God of War. Open world single player games that did incredibly well in 2018 and broke several records.
Jedi: Fallen Order is still in development though and is supposed to be a single player game. But probably not open world and much more linear. Not much is known about the project.
My comment is that I wish Disney would give the Star Wars games license to any other publisher. What do you think about all this? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
The Verge reports that a new Star Wars game was announced earlier today at E3. The game is titled “Jedi: Fallen Order” and is developed by Respawn (they also made the Titanfall games). Respawn was acquired by EA in December 2017. This will be their first Star Wars game. Click through for a few more details!
It seems that anything online (and in a social type of setting) is harmful to your mental health anymore. Forbes posted a fantastic recent article outlining six ways that social media is affecting the mental health of those who constantly utilize it, and with really no surprise, EA is in the middle of a controversy that there new Star Wars game was really just gambling masked in Star Wars which is all social media based. We’re beginning to believe that people should probably step away from these social media outlets and related things. What we have all personally witnessed online and they affects they’ve clearly had on people are frightening. And now it’s starting to affect younger minds. It’s time to get the kids (as well as the rest of us) outside and in the fresh air again. Anyway, check out the article on EA at CNBC.com. It’s another frightening example of what can happen in the social media/gaming arena. Remember how hard it was to give up Candy Crush? It seems things are headed in the right direction for EA, but it’s scary to think what might have been.

Earlier this month, StarWars.com announced an upcoming mobile strategy game from Lucasfilm and EA . It’s still extremely early and very few details have been made available. Personally, I really enjoyed the MMORPG Star Wars: Uprising and the accompanying canon story line that followed ROTJ, but this will be a much different game. I have just received my pre-Alpha invitation so I will be providing more details about it soon enough so stay tuned!
EA has released a new trailer that features gameplay from the Starfighter Assault game mode in Battlefront II. The gameplay shown in the trailer spans every era and revealed new locations including Ryloth.
