Would be nice to see EA lose the NFL exclusivity rights, too.

While Ubisoft is more consistent than EA, their games are even less inspired. The Far Cry formula they use for every game is getting really stale.

It isn't a Far Cry formula. It started with AC. But yes, it's definitely stale. Their games have become far too formulaic.

They need each franchise to have its own unique structure and gameplay loop. They all currently play and feel largely the same.

So they're dealing not only with open world fatigue, but also an overall fatigue because their games are all so similar.

They are just one of many non EA developers that will now get their opportunity at a Star Wars games. It just happens that Ubisoft is the first announced game but there will he many more that are not from Ubisoft.
