A new report quashes hopes of a Star Wars Battlefront 3, and states that EA will be focusing on its own IP once Respawn's three Star Wars games are out.

EA’s experience with the Star Wars licenses has had its highs and lows. Multiple high-profile games have been cancelled in development over the years, while controversies such as the lukewarm reception for Star Wars Battlefront and the botched launch of its sequel have attracted plenty of negative attention as well. At the same time though, there have been a number of positives to take as well, such as the remarkable turnaround of Star Wars Battlefront 2 and solid new releases with the likes of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Star Wars Squadrons.

Recently, EA announced that three new Star Wars games are in development at Respawn Entertainment– a Star Wars Jedi sequel (which will reportedly launch later this year), a new first person shooter, and a strategy title developed in partnership with Bit Reactor. According to a report published by GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb though, that might be it as far as EA’s license of Star Wars is concerned.

According to Grubb, the publisher has moved the entirety of its Star Wars license over to Respawn Entertainment, and once those three aforementioned games are out, EA will no longer be making any more Star Wars games. That, of course, means that DICE or EA aren’t going to develop a new Star Wars Battlefront title, though based on previous reports, that doesn’t come as much of a surprise.

Grubb states that EA is pivoting to focusing on its own IP while cutting down on licensing costs, with the likes of Battlefield, Dead Space, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Skate, and more all being EA-owned properties that are in line to receive new entries in the coming years.

Of course, there are plenty of other Star Wars games in the works at various other development studios across the industry outside of EA, including TT Games’ LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker SagaUbisoft Massive’s open world Star Wars game, Aspyr Media’s Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remakeand Quantic Dream’s Star Wars Eclipse.
