GameSpot has contacted EA, asking what the developer has in store for the show.

EA signed a ten-year deal with Star Wars franchise owner Disney in 2013 for new games based on the series to be developed by two of its marquee studios: Battlefield series outfit DICE and Dead Space creator Visceral.

DICE is working on Star Wars: Battlefront, which is due to launch by the end of the year. Meanwhile, Visceral is rumored to be producing an open-world Star Wars game.

Former Uncharted creative director Amy Hennig has joined EA to work on Visceral's new Star Wars title.

Star Wars: Battlefront's design director previously teased that DICE would reveal more about the game sometime this spring, which would align nicely with the Star Wars Celebration.
