Star Wars - Respawn

Many months of rumors later and Electronic Arts has finally unveiled what’s next for Star Wars. In collaboration with Lucasfilm Games, the publisher announced that Respawn Entertainment will be developing three new titles. One of those is the next Star Wars Jedi title with game director Stig Asmussen and his team working on the same.

The second title is a brand new first-person shooter helmed by game director Peter Hirschmann, for which work has just begun. Hirschmann previously worked as executive producer on the original Star Wars Battlefront titles and also as VP of development at LucasArts. “Working with Lucasfilm Games on a new FPS in the Star Wars galaxy is a dream come true for me, as this is a story I have always wanted to tell.”

The third title is being developed along with the newly formed Bit Reactor which is led by Greg Foerscth (who previously worked as art director for XCOM 2 and XCOM: Enemy Unknown). It will be a new strategy game that Bit Reactor is leading development on.  Respawn founder and Group GM Vince Zampella will be overseeing “this new phase of EA’s relationship with Lucasfilm, building on Respawn’s award-winning history in game development and expertise in telling compelling Star Wars stories.”

Meanwhile, Lucasfilm Games VP Douglas Reilly stated that, “We are excited to continue working with the superbly talented developers at Respawn. They have demonstrated excellence in telling epic Star Wars stories along with best-in-class gameplay across different genres and we are looking forward to bringing more amazing experiences to the galaxy far, far away.”

Walt Disney Games SVP Sean Shoptaw added that, “Building on the previous successes of our EA relationship, this new collaboration highlights the trust and mutual respect shared between the world-class teams at EA, Respawn and Lucasfilm Games. Fostered by the expertise and passion within each team, we will create thrilling original games for diverse audiences across the Star Wars galaxy.”

Though a reveal date for these titles has yet to be confirmed, we could learn more before E3 2022 (most likely on May 4th, which is a yearly celebration of the Star Wars franchise). As for the next Star Wars Jedi title, it’s rumored to be releasing in Q4 2022. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
