EA’s Star Wars ‘pivot’ is a vote of no confidence in single-player games

Electronic Arts announced yesterday that it is refocusing the Star Wars project that had been in development at Visceral Games, an unannounced action-adventure title with a linear story campaign. EA Vancouver is taking over with a new direction, assisted by other EA studios, while EA is shuttering Visceral Games entirely and looking to shift the studio’s developers elsewhere inside the company.

The story is too old to be commented.

False flag. They are making the greatest Star Wars Singleplayer since time began!

Ironically Bioware already made that almost 20 years ago. This HAD potential alright but its in the gutter now. At least we can all agree EA are the MASTERS at going out of their way to destroy any hype for an upcoming game.

There finished it for you.

I don't even watch it but I keep thinking of Ross

Friends is awesome though. You should definitely watch it.

I want to but the thing is when I was in my GCSE Media Studies we were doing a module on Sitcoms and the teacher decided to show us a variety of different ones which were iconic...she showed us the very last episode.

The very first one I watched was the last...kind of spoilt it for me so I'll give it another few years when I forget or if I luckily hit my head, get a concussion and my mind goes blank :)

Just because the market is going that way, doesn't mean i have too.

Not buying Battlefront 2 because of the microtransactions and loot boxes.

Won't buy this if it doesn't have a great single player campaign without microtransactions and loot boxes.

If the new generation of gamers are happy to pay, i am fine with that. I'll just get my gaming kicks elsewhere.

The way things are going I m wondering, where/how are you gonna get your gaming kicks from and can i join you?

zb1ftw777274d ago

On the Switch.

Quality exclusives with none of the bullshit.

UltraNova273d ago

Its on my radar, but I need story driven games as well.

Thank goodness for those Mr Plinkett Star Wars reviews because I never would have got that "vote of no confidence" reference.
