The Walt Disney Company and Electronic Arts have signed a multi-year exclusive licensing agreement to develop and publish Star Wars games.

 

Deal will bring new Star Wars games to fans across the most popular gaming genres and platforms

 

 

The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) and Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today announced a new multi-year exclusive licensing agreement to develop and publish globally new games based on Star Wars characters and storylines.

 

Under the agreement, EA will develop and publish new Star Wars titles for a core gaming audience, spanning all interactive platforms and the most popular game genres, while Disney will retain certain rights to develop new titles within the mobile, social, tablet and online game categories.

 

“This agreement demonstrates our commitment to creating quality game experiences that drive the popularity of the Star Wars franchise for years to come,” said John Pleasants, Co-President of Disney Interactive. “Collaborating with one of the world’s premier game developers will allow us to bring an amazing portfolio of new Star Wars titles to our fans around the world.”

 

“Every developer dreams of creating games for the Star Wars universe,” said EA Labels President Frank Gibeau. “Three of our top studios will fulfill that dream, crafting epic adventures for Star Wars fans. DICE and Visceral will produce new games, joining the BioWare team which continues to develop for the Star Wars franchise. The new experiences we create may borrow from films, but the games will be entirely original with all new stories and gameplay.”

 

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

 

 

 

GO EA. GO FROSTBITE 3. GO KOTOR3. GO BATTLEFRONT III. GO GO GO!

Dice making a Battlefront game on frostbite engine would be awesome.

 

Visceral as well? That's sweet.

I want Obsidian to get cracking on KOTOR III, now. 

 

DO it, EA.

Now that MOH is dead, Battlefront might fulfill EA's requirement of yearly FPS release. Good going EA.

Raven Soft did the last iteration of the Jedi Knight games, they are the best bet in my opinion.

I am ok with this. 

 

Lets face it, Bioware will be terrified of doing another Tortanic so most likely we will get another KotoR. And Dice and Visceral are both solid developers. Hopefully we get good games out of this. 

 

 

Can I have Republic Command 2 please?

 

Good man.

The guys from 38 Studios (Kingdom of Amalur). Kingdom of Amalur have the right mix of action of RPG, the game work so seamlessly in both gamepad and keyboard that just playing the is so much of fun. The only thing I don't like of KOA is the art style, give me gritty  witcher like art style with KOA gameplay in the jedi knight series

38 Studios has gone under, if I recall correctly. So we won't be seeing them anytime soon. 

 

Another studio that comes to mind is VIGIL but those guys are fragmented too after ThQ went under. 

 

STAR WARS 1313 was going to be the gritty take on the franchise, looked mildly interesting too; being based on majorly on the crime-haven of Nar Shaddaa (instead of Inner Rim planets) and you playing as a bounty hunter / smuggler / rouge-like personality. 

 

Obsidian comes to mind but they would do a RPG in the vein of KoTOR II. 

 

Anyway, hoping for something exciting to be thrown up and not bound by EA's commerce-heavy machinations.

yeah, it just my pipe dream. Anyway good news is we will get continuous starwars games now onwards. Damn why  the hell Lucas Arts were sleeping for so many years, people are demanding Kotor 3 for so many years still they are pondering

It was an internal call that all KoTOR related story was to be taken over by comic / novella anthologies followed by the TOR MMO. We all know how that turned out. 

 

Maybe now we can have hopes of Obsidian bringing back KoTOR III. No I don't want BIOWARE to do it. 

 

 


Can I have Republic Commando 2 please?

 

I doubt we will see Republic Commando II, we might see Imperial Commando as a follow up or maybe what happened to Kal Skirata and the Null / Omega Squad members who went into hiding with him.
