Only 24 hours after the announcement of the game Indiana Jones by Bethesda, Lucasfilm Games announces a new collaboration with Ubisoft this time. More surprisingly, this partnership concerns the Star Wars license, whose games were until now an exclusive Electronic Arts.

However, it is official, confirmed by Ubisoft, the official Star Wars site and Lucasfilm, the French publisher will develop a new open world game in the Star Wars universe in the coming years. The Massive Entertainment teams will take care of this project.

It is therefore through a very short teaser of only 17 seconds that Ubisoft announced their partnership with LucasFilm Games for the development of a new Star Wars game. A game that would be focused on storytelling and open-world. At the moment, and as with the Indiana Jones game, we do not have any other information. And obviously, it will be necessary to be a little more patient before being able to discover a preview of the game.

LucasFilm Games is very ambitious and happy to continue carrying out projects around Star Wars in the world of video games.

We have a lot of stuff that we’re ready to start sharing with the fans. We’ve been working quietly behind the scenes for a while now, waiting for this moment […] We’re looking to work with the best-in-class teams who can create great games across our IP. We have a team of professionals here at Lucasfilm Games who can work with the developers, shape the stories, shape the creation, shape the games, really make them resonate with fans, and deliver across a wide range of platforms, genres and experiences. so that all our fans can enjoy the license addresses they know and love […] We are truly delighted to have the opportunity to work with the team at Massive Entertainment, led by David Polfeldt and Creative Director Julian Gerighty. We have spent almost a year now working to get to know them and what they want to bring.

In partnership for several years with Disney for the exclusive development of video games, Electronic Arts has not lost its privilege and will continue to develop games around the Star Wars license. After the two Battlefronts, Jedi Fallen Order or Squadrons, LucasFilm Games will continue to work with EA on other (many) projects!

We are really proud of the games we have made with EA. We will continue to work with them and our relationship has never been stronger. While we might not have a lot of details to share at the moment, we have a number of projects going on with the talented teams at EA.
