Just yesterday, we reported that Disney had called Lucasfilm Games back to lifeto develop a new Indiana Jones game with Bethesda and Machine Games (Wolfenstein: The New Order), for example. And there's big plans and a new partner for the Star Wars universe, too.
Namely, according to Wired, Lucasfilm Games will also be working with Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment (The Division 1+2) to produce an open-world Star Wars game. According to Gameswirtschaft, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot later confirmed the deal:
"This is the beginning of a long-term collaboration with Disney and Lucasfilm Games, and we're excited to work hand-in-hand to build on Lucasfilm's incredible legacy to create a game we know Star Wars fans will love."
It will be the first Star Wars game not made by EA since the start of the exclusive partnership between Disney and Electronic Arts. Speaking of which, that very partnership ends in 2023, at which point Lucasfilm plans to work with several different partners. Lucasfilm Games VP Douglas Reilly explains (via PC Games):
"We are on the lookout for top-notch teams that can create great games for all of our IPs. We have a team of professionals here at Lucasfilm Games that work with the developers, craft the stories, craft the creative, craft the games so they really resonate with fans and are delivered across a wide range of platforms, genres and experiences so all of our fans can enjoy the IPs they know and love."
On working with EA, Reilly says:
"We're really proud of the games we've developed with EA. We will continue to work with them and our relationship has never been stronger. While we can't reveal many details right now, we have a number of projects in the works with the talented teams at EA."
And EA itself also makes it clear: "We love Star Wars. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Lucasfilm Games. We'll be making more Star Wars games. And BD-1 continues to be the cuddliest. "
