Ubisoft partners with Lucasfilm to create a massive open world Star Wars game
Star Wars fans have recently seen sequel trilogy and a hit streaming TV show and now they’ll be getting a new ambitious open world game set in a galaxy far, far away.
Massive Entertainment, one of the studios of award-winning game publisher Ubisoft, is collaborating with Lucasfilm Games on the new story-driven game set in the vast Star Wars universe.
“The vast Star Wars lore is an incredible source of inspiration for our teams,” said Yves Guillemot, co-founder and CEO of Ubisoft.
“This is the beginning of a long-term collaboration with Disney and Lucasfilm Games, and we are pleased to be working hand-in-hand to build upon the incredible legacy of Lucasfilm to create a game that we know Star Wars fans will love.
There are few details about the game at this point including the time period when it will be set and the characters which will be included.
“Ubisoft have a unique talent for crafting immersive worlds so we’re thrilled to work with them on this project”, said Douglas Reilly, VP, Lucasfilm Games.
“We are inspired by the passion and talent of the team at Massive, and together we share a vision for the type of original stories we want to tell with our players in this expansive galaxy. They have the creativity, experience, and community understanding to bring awe-inspiring authenticity, depth and innovation to this new Star Warsgame.”
There have already been several successful Star Wars games which were published by EA Games including Star Wars Battlefront 1 and 2, Jedi Fallen Order and Star Wars Squadrons.
“In the Star Wars galaxy and beyond, we work with the best teams in the industry to create world-class games that push the boundaries of the medium,” said Sean Shoptaw, SVP, Disney Games and Interactive Experiences.
“Lucasfilm Games and Massive Entertainment together can create something truly unique for our fans across the globe.”
The new open world Star Wars game won’t be released anytime soon and we don’t even know what it will be called.
But the new game will join an ambitous slate of Star Wars content including upcoming movies, TV shows and books.
