EA has announced that Respawn Entertainment, the studio that created Titanfall, is working on a brand new Star Wars game.
The game maker and publisher chose May 4 to announce the news, and it comes directly from a post drafted by Executive Vice President of EA Studios Patrick Soderlund. As he rattles of all the different studios working on Star Wars games, he announces 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.”
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.
Will this be something similar to what we would have had with 1313, or will we be seeing yet another new take on the Star Wars franchise?
What are you hoping for?
