EA Signs Multi-Year Video Game Agreement For Star Wars – What Future Games Could We Play?

PlayStation Euphoria: In a surprise turn of events, EA and The Walt Disney Company signed a multi-year video game agreement which allows them to create Star Wars games for the core gaming audience. While Disney retain mobile, social, tablet and online game categories, EA will be able to create for "all interactive platforms." According to the press release, “DICE and Visceral will produce new games, joining the BioWare team which continues to develop for the Star Wars franchise." So what could this mean? (Industry, Star Wars 1313, Star Wars: Battlefront III)

It means that EA will publish games under the Star Wars license. End of story.

Hey, thanks for the comment! The title's been switched!

I think the main thing here is first, yeah, games are coming. Secondly, they need to take their time. EA has had some issues in the past year and change such as games being unplayable due to bugs and issue, micro transactions, and a perception of bad customer service.

They have the keys to the kingdom, do not blow it and stress quality over quantity. I do not want to see an endless parade of largely average to bad console games. Lets see PC and Console games on par with the X-Wing and Dark Forces series as well as KOTR.

Bring back a BioWare developed KOTOR , that would be excellent.

STOP IT WITH THE GOD DAMNED EXCLUSIVE SHIT ON CONSOLES, EA!!! HAVEN'T YOU LEARNED ANYTHING FROM MADDEN AT ALL??? *heart attack*

EA will be able to make PC games as well. I apologize for the misunderstanding.

Well I think this more or less confirms DICE will handle Battlefront 3, and I would be content with that.

EA, if you want people to like you again, battlefront 3 or something similar to It, now....

I've stopped buying EA games since they crapped up my beloved Dragon Age and Mass Effect series. *pours one out*

Dice, make Battlefront NOW!

DICE always makes shooters with really "heavy" gameplay and over powered vehicles. That isn't Battlefront.

I think one of the other developers should make it, and the gameplay should be more streamlined like COD. Not so many dead zones, faster paced, and more action oriented.

Sure big maps here or there, but not like BF3.

Battlefront 3 incoming with Frostbite Engine........

Why would Disney go with EA, they have a terrible track record of destroying franchises. 2K Games or Ubisoft would have been a better choice for developing Star Wars Games.

Looks like EA's stock value is set to go up.
Bob Dole  +   850d ago
Looks like Bob Dole most likely won't be getting any of these new games unless they're just remarkable. He has a special hatred for Origin and anything on it. Too bad there's no refunds for Sim City.

Like I said before.. EA should get DICE or Crytek to develop Star Wars Battlefront 3
Tatsuya  +   850d ago
Sh1t, it's EA. Ohh well, more star wars games is always good. Get ready for the franchise to be milked yearly.

I hope the games will be good, but maybe I'm just hoping too much.
