Ubisoft Announce New Star Wars Game for Lucasfilm Games as EA Exclusivity Ends

It has been a very busy 48 hours following the news that Disney announced they were both bringing back but also changing the branding of a very familiar brand in gaming many gamers will instantly recognise as Lucasarts has now become ‘Lucasfilm Games’ . The aim is to bring all video games from across their licenses including Star Wars, under one publishing brand.

This has been timed perfectly to match the expiration of the EA exclusivity deal that meant only they could release Star Wars video games, something that suffered many bumps in the road. With Lucasfilm Games now fully in operation, one of the first non EA games to be developed will be with Ubisoft who confirmed the news via Twitter:

It’s a genre long-requested by fans, and will come to life via Massive Entertainment, as new Lucasfilm Games VP Douglas Reilly explains: “We’re really excited about an opportunity to work with the team at Massive, led by David Polfeldt and the creative director, Julian Gerighty. We’ve spent almost a year now, working to get to know them and what they want to bring to the table. I’m a huge fan of them, personally. I think we’re really excited about where that project is going, because they have a unique vision for the story and the game they want to deliver.”

Not only that, but yesterday it was announced that Bethesda is working on a brand new Indiana Jones video game as well under Lucasfilm Games. Xbox fans can be particularly excited by this news with Bethesda now an Xbox Studio meaning this will likely come to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on day one of release.

This does not mean that EA’s time with Star Wars is over, Reilly goes on to explain how this is still a relationship and collaboration for years to come still: “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.”

This is good news as I am personally looking forward to the follow up to Jedi: Fallen Order and maybe even a sequel to Squadrons.

To keep up to date with all things Lucasfilm Games make sure to follow them on social media starting with their Twitter.
