Ubisoft Massive are going to focus on developing more content for The Division and on developing their Avatar game, but they also have another megaton in the works with their open world Star Wars title. As you might expect from a game that was recently announced without gameplay (or even a name), that title is in pretty early development.

Speaking during Ubisoft’s recent quarterly earnings call, chief financial officer Frederick Duguet. said that Massive Entertainment’s Star Wars game is “at an early stage of development”, and that it’s going to be a while before we hear or see much about it (via VGC).

“We didn’t mention any specific dates,” he said. “The game is at an early stage of development so we will have to wait a bit before telling you more about timing.”

CEO Yves Guillemot and Massive Entertainment’s creative director Julien Gerighty also spoke about their excitement about the opportunity to get to work on Star Wars lore and making something that becomes a permanent part of the series’ canon.

“The Star Wars galaxy is an amazing source of motivation for our teams to innovate and push the boundaries of our medium,” said Guillemot. “Building new worlds, characters and stories that will become lasting parts of the Star Wars lore is an incredible opportunity for us, and we are excited to have our Ubisoft Massive studio working closely with Lucasfilm Games to create an original Star Wars adventure that is different from anything that has been done before.”

Gerighty added: “This is a lore that we love, and we want to do it justice with a game and story that bring both lifelong and new fans on an immersive and outstanding journey that will stay with them for years.”

Meanwhile, in spite of no longer being the exclusive holders of the license, EA are also currently working on multiple unannounced Star Wars games. Read more on that through here.
