Team achter originele Call of Duty komt met Star Wars-game

Gisteren was het internationale Star Wars dag. May the Fourth be with you. Vandaag gaan we gewoon verder, het is inmiddels Revenge of the Fifth! En EA doet met ons mee. Gisteren hebben ze namelijk zomaar even laten weten dat ze een bijzonder grote, nieuwe Star Wars-game in ontwikkeling hebben. Respawn Entertainment, de studio die ons Titanfall bracht en bestaat uit de mannen achter het originele Call of Duty en Modern Warfare, heeft een third person action adventure in ontwikkeling situerende in het melkwegstelsel hier ver vandaan. Dit maakte Patrick Söderlund, Executive Vice President bij EA Studios bekend. Ook stipte hij nog even aan dat studios als Visceral ook met Star Wars bezig zijn.

At EA right now, we have multiple studios building a variety of great Star Wars games spanning different genres. We are all united by our teams’ passion for Star Wars stories, characters, and adventures.

Today, I’m thrilled to be able to announce that EA and the talented team at Respawn Entertainment have expanded our relationship to include the development of an all-new 3rd person action adventure game set in the Star Wars universe. They join our other great studios – Visceral Games, DICE, Capital Games, BioWare, Motive and more – who are currently working on Star Wars projects. If you’re interested in joining us on this adventure, you can visit our Careers page – we have openings at Visceral and Motive and will be sharing more on these experiences soon.

Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with Vince Zampella and his group. Their obsession with making games that feel amazing has helped make Titanfall one of the most successful new game launches of this generation. And now, with a new team led by Stig Asmussen, we get to see what they can do when you combine that great attention to gameplay with the power of Star Wars.

There’s never been a better time to be a Star Wars fan. The passion we’re seeing for Star Wars from gamers – whether they’ve been along for the ride since Star Wars™: Episode IV: A New Hope™, or were introduced to the magic of Star Wars with Star Wars: The Force Awakens – is fueling our development teams and our partners to create unique interactive extensions of this deep, meaningful universe. As a game maker, nothing is more exciting.
