As we already informed you, Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment are working on a new open-world Star Wars title. Lucasfilm Games will provide guidance and assistance in this project. Unfortunately, this open-world Star Wars game is still quite far away.
According to Ubisoft’s CEO, they are at the early stage of development, meaning it will probably take several years. You probably shouldn’t expect the game any sooner than 2023.
However, let’s not forget this is Ubisoft, a company that releases major titles every couple of years. Hopefully they will put more time and effort into the development, and release something great and unique.
I mean we are talking about Star Wars, which is among the highest grossing film franchises in the world. Even though the last three films were disappointing.
However, the latest Star Wars TV show, The Mandalorian, was quite enjoyable. And of course, we had some exceptional games in the past, such as the Knights of the Old Republic I & II.
According to Lucasfilm Games, a team of professionals will work with Massive, in order to “shape the stories, shape the creative, shape the games, to make them really resonate with fans and deliver across a breadth of platforms, genres, and experiences so that all of our fans can enjoy the IPs that they know and love”.
Lastly, Massive Entertainment is also working on an Avatar game based on James Cameron’s blockbuster movie, which is scheduled to be released in March 2023.
