Publisher Electronic Arts today announced that it has three new Star Wars games in the works as part of its continued collaboration with Lucasfilm Games. Respawn Entertainment is leading the development and production of these projects, one of which is the follow-up to the acclaimed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
The next entry in the action-adventure series is being worked on by a team led by Game Director Stig Asmussen. A different team, led by Peter Hirschmann, has "just begun work" on a brand new Star Wars first-person shooter.
The third project is a Star Wars strategy game, developed by Greg Foerstch's newly formed studio Bit Reactor, with Respawn Entertainment handling production.
"We are excited to continue working with the superbly talented developers at Respawn," said Lucasfilm Games VP Douglas Reilly. "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."
Going forward, Respawn Entertainment Founder Vince Zampella "will oversee this new phase of EA’s relationship with Lucasfilm."
Little else is known about the three upcoming Star Wars games at the moment, but the studio is currently hiring across several positions.
The success of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order – which was quite an oasis of single-player goodness in a roster otherwise focused on live services – makes the announcement of a new game in the series quite expected.
Having both a first-person shooter and a strategy game on the way should make from some interesting times for Star Wars fans, especially if you count among those who frequently revisit Galactic Battlegrounds or Empire at War.
