Electronic Arts is bringing the galaxy far, far away a little closer.
Star Wars will have a number of new games over the next few years, and EA doesn’t want you to forget it. The publisher released a new video as part of its independent event in Los Angeles and London as part of the leadup to massive Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show. It showed eight different studios including Criterion, Visceral, and Respawn working on Battlefront and its sequel and other, untitled projects.
EA confirmed that a new Battlefront is due out in 2017, and the Visceral-led game will come in 2018. While Battlefront will continue to focus on action and shooting, Visceral is producing a narrative adventure that will feature a new story and new characters. This could likely mean we won’t get a retelling of any of the films.
