EA, Star Wars breakup proves Lucasfilm is finally serious about gaming

EA, Star Wars breakup proves Lucasfilm is finally serious about gaming

We will continue working with them and our relationship has never been stronger.

Today, Lucasfilm Games announced a partnership with Massive Entertainment, developers of The Division franchise. Yesterday, Lucasfilm Games also announced that MachineGames and Bethesda are working on an Indiana Jones game. And it's clear Star Wars Squadrons was mostly a miss since it got a steep discount around the holidays, even more than you'd expect for the season.

Very little is known about the game so far - which era it'll play in, which characters might pop up, or how it might intersect with the upcoming slew of Star Wars shows and movies. The esteemed developer will be developing the new open-world Star Wars title, which is now in the early stages of production. These are still early days though, and Massive is now on a recruitment drive to get the right staff ready for the project that will be helmed by creative director Julian Gerighty, director of The Division 2 and The Crew. It's not likely that this new game will follow in those same footsteps, but hopefully it will immerse players in the world of Star Wars in a satisfying way.

After Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm from George Lucas, the company did away with LucasArts, the gaming division of Lucasfilm, and struck a multi-year deal for EA to develop and publish Star Wars video games exclusively.

Apple engineers have managed to shave off a couple of millimeters off the width and height, but the thickness remains the same. And may not exist at all, given than doubling its big CPU cores and GPU cores would make it very similar to the Apple M1 chip.

"EA has been and will continue to be a very strategic and important partner for us now and going forward".

Publisher Ubisoft and developer Massive Entertainment have announced that production has begun on an open-world adventure set in the Star Wars universe. There was definitely a big step up with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, but the game still had some issues that displeased fans.

"The Star Wars galaxy is an unbelievable source of motivation for our teams to innovate and push the boundaries of our medium", said Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot. According to WIRED, who broke this news, Massive are still recruiting for the project, so it's possible that we'll see Indiana Jones launch before the new Star Wars.
