Earlier this week, EA’s CEO, Andrew Wilson, confirmed that more Star Wars video games are indeed on the way, squashing speculation that the company’s partnership with Disney may be ending in the near future.
“We have a tremendous relationship with Disney,” Wilson enthused in a fireside chat discussion. “We have a tremendous relationship with Lucas. We have a longstanding relationship with them going all the way back to Star Wars The Old Republic that we launched in 2011.”
In the conversation, Wilson mentions that Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars Battlefront II have together sold 35 million copies across all platforms while Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order sold 10 million. EA recently revealed Star Wars: Squadrons, a purely space dogfighting video game, and a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has been confirmed by various sources though it’s unclear what stage in development it’s currently in or when it’ll be released.
As for potential upcoming Star Wars games, a new Battlefront title is incredibly likely due to that franchise’s brand recognition and loyal following who are still demanding additional content be made for Star Wars Battlefront II. A renewed focus on single-player story titles is also possible after Jedi: Fallen Order proved that the genre can be as successful as many online multiplayer games.
