EA has said that Respawn will be in charge of making three new Star Wars games. It is the company that made Titanfall and Apex Legends.
Even though EA’s licencing deal with the franchise, which is now owned by Disney, ends this year or next. However, that doesn’t mean there won’t be any more Star Wars games. The company has confirmed three books in the most popular science fiction series in the world, but it hasn’t said anything about when they will come out.
In this way, the three titles will be different and stand on their own. On the one hand, the company wants to release a Jedi universe game (likely the sequel to Fallen Order), a Star Wars first-person shooter, and a real-time strategy game.
The best part is that Respawn Entertainment, the same company that made Apex Legends, Titanfall, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, is making all three of the new Star Wars games. Vince Zampella, one of the best in the business, is in charge of the study, which is in charge of the new releases.
It looks like Zampella’s work in the next few years is going to be huge. Not only does he oversee the saga at EA, but he is also in responsible for the Battlefield series.
“Everyone at Respawn is a huge Star Wars fan, so we’re delighted to be working with Lucasfilm Games on new games we’ve been wanting to make for years. Join us on our journey if you want to make great Star Wars games.”

And de Zampella isn’t the only well-known person who worked on making the three new Star Wars games. EA says that Stig Asmussen and his team are already working on the next action-adventure game in the Star Wars Jedi series. Peter Hirschmann, who is the Game Director at Respawn, is in charge of making the new Star Wars first-person shooter.
The third game will be about strategy, but it won’t be made by Respawn. Bit Reactor is in charge of making it, but Respawn will be in charge of making sure it gets made.
The game that is being made by Ubisoft must also be added to this list of EA games. Massive is one of the best studios at the French company Ubisoft, which made The Division. They are also making a very ambitious Star Wars game.

According to official announcement the game will be a story-driven open world set in the George Lucas universe. That will use the studio’s cutting-edge technology, like the Snowdrop engine. Which was also used in The Division.
It looks like Star Wars will be a big part of the video game industry after all. Big companies like EA and Ubisoft are already making games based on the Disney saga.
