When Disney bought Lucasfilm, all hope for Battlefront was lost until they teamed up with EA, who surprised us with their announcement of continuing this popular series. Now, we have learned that they have license over the video games for a period of 10 years. With this, they have also announced that they will not being doing any movie games.
“We had a long relationship obviously with Lucas on the original Star Wars, and when Disney took over Lucas they really wanted to maintain a video game business around Star Wars. They felt it was very valuable and a lot of people loved the games historically. And so they came to us because of our partnership, and they knew that we could help them develop really great games, and we struck what we believe is a fantastic deal, which allows us to be able to build games in many different genres across multiple types of platforms over 10 years.”
“We’ve done movie games over the years and we wanted to make sure that we weren’t doing a movie game, i.e., game based on the movie”
So not having any movie based games is alright, more excited to see the spinoff storylines the games bring as well as seeing Battlefront resurfacing. Now, all we have to do is wait to see if Star Wars 1313 and Star Wars Assault will see any light.
