New Story-Driven, Open-World Star Wars Game In The Works From Ubisoft's Massive Entertainment

Bespin refugee - January 14, 2021


With the official return to the classic Lucasfilm Games branding, comes the announcement that they have begun working with various developers to make great games across all of their IP. "We’ve got a team of professionals here at Lucasfilm Games who can work with the developers, shape the stories, shape the creative, shape the games, to make them really resonate with fans and deliver across a breadth of platforms, genres, and experiences so that all of our fans can enjoy the IPs that they know and love,” says. Lucasfilm Games VP Douglas Reilly. With this announcement comes news that Lucasfilm Games is working with Ubisoft's studio based in Sweden, Massive Entertainment, on a new story-driven, open-world Star Wars game, a genre long-requested by fans. "Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment are renowned for their expertise in developing immersive worlds, and in pushing the boundaries of technology with their proprietary engine, Snowdrop."



Following the success of the Battlefront series, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and Star Wars: Squadrons, Electronic Arts will also continue to play a big role in the future of Star Wars gaming. “We’re really proud of the games we have created with EA,” Reilly says. “We will continue working with them and our relationship has never been stronger. While we may not have a lot of details to share at the moment, we’ve got a number of projects underway with the talented teams at EA.”

A certain adventuring archaeologist will also be making a return to gaming. “I have wanted to do an Indiana Jones game for a long time, and we’ve never had the right fit of partner and idea to make that happen. We are extraordinarily fortunate to be working with Todd Howard, the executive producer for the upcoming game, which will be developed by MachineGames and the team at Bethesda. He has a unique vision and a unique passion for Indiana Jones, and pitched us a story and a concept that is so amazing, I can’t wait to start sharing it with folks... We’re really excited about this one.”

For Star Wars and Lucasfilm fans, there’s a lot to be excited about in the realm of gaming. And Reilly promises there’s more to come. “This is just the beginning of what I think is going to be a very exciting year for Lucasfilm Games.”

I like Ubisoft, mostly the Assassins Creed series, so I'll be glass half full guy and remain optimistic. I didn't think much of Jedi Fallen order when it was first announced and I really enjoyed playing that game.

Unless it takes place outside of the Skywalker Saga timeframe, I'm not sure I'm gonna care.

Meh...World of Star Wars I'll call it.This generation of videogames isn't going to appeal to me either.

Squadrons is really fun, I haven't played anything else lately... and I have quite the backlog right now.
