No Star Wars games will be released during the current financial year, Electronic Arts has confirmed. During a recent investors’ call, the company said that it would release 11 major titles on PC and consoles in fiscal year ’14 (April 2013 to March 2014).
What you mean No Star Wars Games This Year …….
Upcoming titles include new entries in the FIFA, Madden, Command & Conquer and Battlefield series, as well as the recently announced Sims 4.
Despite previous delays and cancellations, EA also plans to launch its NBA Live franchise within the year, according to Joystiq.
EA is likely to release its first licensed Star Wars game closer to the launch of Episode VII in 2015.
EA announced a multi-year licensing deal with Disney earlier this week.
The publisher will create new titles based on the Star Wars movies for mobile devices, consoles and PCs, while Disney has kept some rights to develop mobile and browser titles, along with social and online games. The announcement was made after Disney issued staff cuts at LucasArts last month.
Work on previously announced games such as Star Wars 1313 and Star Wars: First Assault has since been halted.
