EA has a 10 year deal. that should be up around 2023.I'm confused with all this new Lucasfilm malarkey. Does this mean EA is no longer the exclusive developer for Star Wars?
Wonder how much they silently paid EA to change contract
I would be surprised if neither has it, especially MS. But then again Sony has a deal with Disney for 2 Marvel properties (SM and IM) and MS doesn't have a deal with them yet.Really surprised that neither Sony nor Microsoft have a deal with Disney for a Star Wars exclusive. Seems like EA lost the license so that should be a good opportunity for them both.
Remember when you climbed up the Empire State Building in The Division? Me neither.
Division 2 must be my most played game last gen, and honestly this could either turn out great or just another meh Star Wars title.
Gameplay wise Division 2 is amazingly fun, and I can see this play out more like a 1313 gameplay (more focus on gun gameplay). But right off the bat I don't think Massive can pull off lightsaber fighting on this one.
I heard that it ends in 2023 so it looks like Disney is not renewing it. Other companies can start development, but they most likely won't be releasing until 2023I'm confused with all this new Lucasfilm malarkey. Does this mean EA is no longer the exclusive developer for Star Wars?
Yeah, after The Divison 2 and the last Ghost Recon game.... Ubisoft was probably the worst publisher after EA.
Division 2 as FANTASTIC. One of the best coop games bar none.
- good gun feel (for the genre)
- fantastic open world
- great UI
- end game requires real skill checks
This new game could really be something.
At least will not be canceled
I agree with your point but Wild is not an Ubisoft project, it is (or was) a Michel Ancel project that he does (did) with his own studio outside of Ubisoft.
this and even if content is not perfect they are a step ahead of all other big studios when it comes to open world.This could work
I think Ubi are pretty amazing at creating lush open worlds (my issue is always the content with them)
As long as they can avoid the fucking usual Ubi open world tropes, and debatable storytelling skills they possess, this may work, with a bit of luck
I’m also thrilled this IP’s leaving EA’s clutches. Only SW game I enjoyed in the last decade or so is Fallen Order
