Ubisoft and Lucasfilm Games have announced that they’ll be working on a new Star Wars game.
“The vast Star Wars lore is an incredible source of inspiration for our teams,” said Yves Guillemot, co-founder and CEO of Ubisoft. “This is the beginning of a long-term collaboration with Disney and Lucasfilm Games, and we are pleased to be working hand-in-hand to build upon the incredible legacy of Lucasfilm to create a game that we know Star Wars fans will love.”
The upcoming game will be story-driven, open-world and developed by Ubisoft’s Massive Entertainment, who previously worked on Tom Clancy’s The Division series.
The new title will be using Massive’s Snowdrop engine.
While EA’s licensing agreement with Disney might be coming to a close, it’s not the end for future EA Star Wars titles.
“We’re really proud of the games we have created with EA,” Lucasfilm Games VP Douglas Reilly tells StarWars.com. “We will continue working with them and our relationship has never been stronger. While we may not have a lot of details to share at the moment, we’ve got a number of projects underway with the talented teams at EA.”
So there could be a sequel to Jedi Fallen Order and Squadrons in the works.
As for the upcoming Ubisoft-developed Star Wars game, no release date or platforms have been announced.
