Earlier this week, a new video appeared on the Star Wars YouTube channel that showcased previously released, and future game titles, that will be collaborations between the revived Lucasfilm Games brand and other developers. For fans of Lucasfilm’s various properties, this was only the beginning of an exciting week of announcements.
Yesterday, Bethesda announced that their studio, Machine Games, will be collaborating with Lucasfilm Games on a brand new Indiana Jones game.
Then, earlier today, Lucasfilm Games announced on Twitter that they are collaborating with Ubisoft’s Massive Entertainment (Tom Clancy’s The Division 2) on an untitled project in the Star Wars universe. According to the tweet, the project will be a “brand-new, story-driven, open-world Star Wars adventure.”
In an interview with StarWars.com, VP of Lucasfilm Games, Douglas Reilly gives more insight into what Massive Entertainment will do with the project: “We know that fans of Star Wars value the feeling of immersion — of being transported into the Star Wars galaxy and moving through richly-detailed environments. It’s fun to imagine what the team at Massive can do within Star Wars by bringing their innovative spirit and commitment to quality.”
With all of the exciting new announcements, Electronic Arts (Star Wars: Battlefront, Star Wars: Batlefront II, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and Star Wars: Squadrons) took to Twitter today and let everyone know that they will still be working on Star Wars going forward.
With these announcements, the future is shaping up to be very exciting for fans of Lucasfilm.
