"And that's going to continue throughout the next year or so, where we're going to continue to announce projects that are more representative of the legacy of the old Lucasfilm Games that we're now trying to live up to".

Well, that looks set to change, because Wired reports that there's a new open-world Star Wars game in development from Lucasfilm Games and Ubisoft's Massive Entertainment.

It's still in the very early stages so details are sparse, but we do know that Julian Gerighty (The Division 2; The Crew) will serve as the game's creative director, and the title will use Massive's Snowdrop engine. We've spent nearly a year now, working to get to know them and what they want to bring to the table. The esteemed developer will be developing the new open-world Star Wars title, which is now in the early stages of production.

Numerous titles EA listed in its statement were featured in a sizzle reel announcing the new rebranding of Star Wars Games as Lucasfilm Games.

"We know that fans of Star Wars value the feeling of immersion - of being transported into the Star Wars galaxy and moving through richly-detailed environments".

"The Star Wars galaxy is an incredible source of motivation for our teams to innovate and push the boundaries of our medium", Ubiboss Yves Guillemt added. This is the first Star Wars game set up outside of Electronic Arts since it became the sole publisher of Star Wars games after Disney purchased Lucasfilm.

A new era for Star Wars gaming has begun. And it's clear Star Wars Squadrons was mostly a miss since it got a steep discount around the holidays, even more than you'd expect for the season. But Electronic Arts isn't done making Star Wars video games just yet. The game will be developed by Ubisoft Massive, who are perhaps best known for The Division 2. In fact, it appears that Star Wars will no longer be an EA exclusive product, much to the relief of fans worldwide.

"We're really proud of the games we have created with EA". We will continue working with them and our relationship has never been stronger.

As for EA's EAxclusivity deal? But I can't imagine EA is working on anything new that isn't tied to those franchises in some capacity.
