May 4th 2016, EA announced with excitement that it is working with Titanfall maker Respawn Entertainment to bring out a new 3rd-person action/adventure game in the Star Wars saga.

The company said on the announcement:

Today, I’m thrilled to be able to announce that EA and the talented team at Respawn Entertainment have expanded our relationship to include the development of an all-new 3rd person action adventure game set in the Star Wars universe. They join our other great studios – Visceral Games, DICE, Capital Games, BioWare, Motive and more – who are currently working on Star Wars projects.

Stig Asmussen, best known for directing God of War III will be taking the helm of the project at Respawn. And words on his post at Respawn’s blog clearly reflects both passion and excitement for the ground-breaking endeavor:

For me, just typing these words is surreal. I have been playing Star Wars games my whole life, now I get to make a Star Wars game.  On top of that, I get to do it at Respawn, a studio comprised of the most talented collection of game makers, creators, visionaries, and (most importantly) advocates for the player, that I have had the good fortune to work with.  And we, like you all, have no shortage of Star Wars passion.

The entire company erupted in cheers when it was announced that this would be our next endeavor.

But it’s not all fun and games — we promise to pay respect to the Star Wars legacy at all times, a fact that will be constantly reinforced and honored as a central game design tenet.  Fans should expect the exemplary level of quality first established at Respawn with Titanfall, a game that epitomizes our studio’s dedication to slick, larger-than-life action and fun, groundbreaking mechanics.  Moving forward, we couldn’t ask for a better universe in which to continue this journey, and although I would love to share all of the exciting places we are going, we have the following piece of information to divulge with you all today:

We’ll be making a third-person action/adventure game set in the Star Wars universe.

As of this moment, there had been no specifics unto what platform the Star Wars game is set to be released in, the announcement from EA was brief and without much details to it. But rest assured, that it is likely that it will be on platforms where predecessors of the game had been on. If any information does comes out from EA (Electronic Arts) you can be sure that we’ll bring you more updates.
