Game News Disney: The crazy rhythm of Star Wars games announced by the studio!
The little mouse with big ears is hungry for new Star Wars games and his stomach looks gargantuan! In any case, this is what a “scoop” announced by a visibly well-informed American journalist suggests…
Star Wars: indigestion in sight?
Would the takeover of LucasFilm by Disney and the loss of exclusive rights for video game adaptations by Electronic Arts give some people a desire for greatness? As one of the sources generally considered to be the best informed in the field, the American journalist Tom Henderson has just posted a rather staggering tweet. According to his information, Disney would have the firm intention to prepare a real invasion: that of the Star Wars games, at a truly mind-blowing pace !
Nice little scoop, Disney wants a new Star Wars game every 6 months. – Tom Henderson on Twitter
A new Star Wars game every 6 months!
It would therefore be at the unreasonable rate of one game every six months that the Disney firm would like to see the Star Wars franchise develop, all machines combined. The author of the article published on Insider Gaming even specifies that Lucasfilm would be willing to commit to producing one AAA game and one other smaller title per fiscal year. Which would result in a new Star Wars game every six months.
It must be said that the license already has many Star Wars games under development, some of which do not yet have an official title. Quantic Dream’s Star Wars Eclipse is obviously one of them, as is Saber Interactive’s remake of Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic.
Fans are also eagerly awaiting the release of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the sequel to Respawn Entertainment’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
But that’s not all. Zynga and Disney have reached an agreement to launch the arena action game Star Wars Hunters sometime next year on Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android with cross-play. Its release had been postponed last July for 2023. Ubisoft Massive is also working on an open world game, while Respawn Entertainment is again mentioned on an FPS and a strategy game around the license.
Not to mention the projects under development that have not yet been unveiled or do not have a definitive title. Some rumors point in particular to a Mandalorian game that could eventually come to fruition. Anyway, and if the information comes to be officially confirmed, let’s hope that this objective envisaged by Disney is only an estimate of the schedules under study and not a really quantified roadmap, which would risk significantly detract from the quality of future Star Wars games…
