Lucasfilm Games and Disney are officially ending their eight years of exclusivity rights with Electronic Arts.
Per a new story from the good folks at Wired, Ubisoft’s Massive Entertainment are working with LFG to create an open-world Star Wars game. This is hot off the heels of the reveal for Lucasfilm Games’ forthcoming Indiana Jones title, developed by Bethesda.
To quote my favorite athlete of all time:
Details are pretty thin at the moment, but we do already know that The Division 2’s director – Julian Gerighty – will be helming this project. The game will also run off of Ubi Massive’s Snowdrop engine (used by The Division and The Division 2) Aside from that, this game could be anything.
For so long, I’ve been waiting for a new Star Wars title that lets you create your own character, and live our your own Star Wars story. The Old Republic scratched that itch for a little while, but I think we all knew that a looter-shooter (or something of its ilk) was going to come along eventually.
I’m personally a huge fan of Ubi Massive and The Division, so I can’t wait to see what they cook up for us.
