Star Wars is getting a new open world game that will be developed by Massive Entertainment, a subsidiary of Ubisoft. The Swedish studio is famous for Tom Clancy’s “The Division 2”, Ubisoft and Disney’s Lucasfilm Games. The parties stated that Massive-which is also making games based on James Cameron’s Avatar-will use its existing Snowdrop engine to promote a “story-driven breakthrough” Star Wars adventure. This is the second day after Lucasfilm Games and Bethesda announced Indiana Jones Games, Lucasfilm Games vice president Douglas Reilly (Douglas Reilly) made more promises: “This is just the beginning of an exciting year for Lucasfilm Games.”
“We are very happy to work with the Massive team led by David Polfeldt and creative director Julian Gerighty,” Reilly told StarWars.com. “We have spent almost a year trying to understand them and what they want to bring to the table. I personally like them very much. I think we are very excited about where the project is going because they want to The delivered story and game have unique insights.
“We know that fans of Star Wars take immersion very seriously-being taken into the Star Wars galaxy and traveling through the detailed environment. Imagine that the Massive team can bring innovation and commitment to quality in Star Wars Do something.”
Massive’s Gerrighty and the game’s creative director added in a prepared statement: “This is the knowledge we like, and we hope to do this through games and stories, so that lifelong and new fans will be immersed in it. And a wonderful journey, and will continue to be with them for many years.”
“The extinction of the huge “Star Wars” is an incredible source of inspiration for our team,” said Yves Guillemot, co-founder and CEO of Ubisoft. “This is the beginning of a long-term partnership with Disney and Lucasfilm Games, and we are excited to work together to build on Lucasfilm’s incredible legacy to create a game we know fans of Star Wars will love.”
The new announcement indicates that Lucasfilm has 10 years of exclusive rights to electronic art in the “Star Wars” game-recently, it has made “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order”, “Star Wars: Squadron” and The return of the nickname “Frontline” has become a reality. The game will expire in 2023. This also means that Massive’s story-driven open world “Star Wars” game may not come out until 2023. This does not mean that EA will not participate in future “Star Wars” games.
“We are very proud of the games created with EA,” Riley said. “We will continue to work with them, and our relationship has never been so strong. Although we may not have too many details to share at the moment, we are working on many projects with EA’s talented team.”
