EA Loses Exclusive Star Wars License! Open World Star Wars Game Coming!

Now that will shake things up for Star Wars gamers quite a bit! After years of exclusivity EA will lose its exclusive license! EA will continue developing Star Wars games, but Ubisoft will now develop an open world Star Wars game. So I suppose we can expect something in the vein of Assassin’s Creed or Watch Dogs to come to Star Wars. The new game will be developed with the help of Lucasfilm Games! Nothing else is really known about the game, but more details will certainly follow!

So, what do you think about this big news for Star Wars games? EA has a mixed track record when it comes to Star Wars games, Fallen Order received praise, but its game mechanics felt somewhat outdated and it was not an open world game, EA scrapped various open world games in the past and was unwilling to develop a huge open world game for Star Wars. Now it seems Lucasfilm finally wants a piece of the open world (single player) gaming market, a genre that is still immensenly popular despite EA’s statements from a few years ago that people no longer like these kind of games. Red Dead Redemption 2m Ghost of Tsushima or even the somewhat maligned Cyberpunk 2077, plus all the Assassin’s Creed titles etc prove that there is much demand for open world games. Of course it’s also possible, that the open world game will be an online game, i.e. without a real offline single player campaign, the exact wording Ubisoft uses is “story driven open world game”. We will have to wait for more details to emerge!
