Titanfall developer working on new Star Wars video game
EA and Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment has announced today that the company will be working on a new Star Wars video game. No further details on the game were announced but they noted that it would be “an all-new 3rd person action adventure game set in the Star Wars universe.”
“I understand on the surface this might sound a bit dry,” Game Director Stig Asmussen says of the vague description. “But developing a game within the ever-expanding Star Wars universe opens up so many paths for us to go down, and an unparalleled playground to design within. We have already planted the seeds by assembling a small, but incredibly talented team, ready for the amazing journey that lies ahead. With this in mind we are looking to expand the dream.”
“Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with Vince Zampella and his group,” Patrick Söderlund, Executive Vice President of EA Studios added. “Their obsession with making games that feel amazing has helped make Titanfall one of the most successful new game launches of this generation. And now, with a new team led by Stig Asmussen, we get to see what they can do when you combine that great attention to gameplay with the power of Star Wars.”
Respawn Entertainment joins a larger group of existing Star Wars developers including Visceral Games (Dead Space, Battlefield Hardline), DICE (Star Wars Battlefront), Capital Games (Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes), BioWare (Mass Effect, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic), and Motive studios.
