Disney Reportedly Wants Two Star Wars Games Per Year
The publisher is said to be pushing for one big AAA game and one smaller game every fiscal year going forward.
Disney is betting big on Star Wars video games. The publisher is reportedly planning to put out two new Star Wars games every year, consisting of one big AAA game and one smaller game every fiscal year. That includes several games that have already been announced as part of its upcoming slate.
Insider Gaming reports that Lucasfilm is on-board for the plan as well, as reflected in several of its upcoming projects. Those include Jedi: Survivor from Respawn, Star Wars Eclipse from Quantic Dream, the competitive shooter Star Wars Hunters, and untitled games from Skydance Media, Respawn, and Ubisoft. The game from Skydance was long rumored as Amy Hennig's next project.
Insider also reports that several more games are also in pre-development. It's not clear which of these are smaller projects, or if anything in the currently announced slate fits that designation. This also suggests some of the games are still years away, like Star Wars Eclipse.
Disney acquired Star Wars in 2012 for more than $4 billion. It gave an exclusive contract to EA to make Star Wars games, but the publisher's game output was relatively low. That contract recently expired, but EA says it is still committed to putting out Star Wars games going forward. Jedi: Survivor is the sequel to one of EA's biggest Star Wars successes, Jedi Fallen Order from Respawn. Meanwhile, other developers have announced their own projects.
