New Star Wars game coming from Titanfall studio

EA and Respawn are working together on a new third-person action adventure game set in the popular sci-fi universe.

Electronic Arts made a big Star Wars Day announcement today.

EA Studios executive Patrick Soderlund revealed that EA is working with Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment on an "all-new third-person action adventure game set in the Star Wars universe."

Respawn is also working on Titanfall 2, which is rumored to come out later this year. The company has also talked about branching out into the mobile game space some day.

The studio, founded by Call of Duty veterans Vince Zampella and Jason West, is the first external studio that EA is working with on new Star Wars games. EA-owned studios Capital Games, Visceral Games, Dice, BioWare and Motive are also currently working on Star Wars projects.

"Over the past few years, I've had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with Vince Zampella and his group," Soderlund said. "Their obsession with making games that feel amazing has helped make Titanfall one of the most successful new game launches of this generation."

Development on Respawn's new Star Wars game is being led by God of War 3 director Stig Asmussen, who joined Respawn in 2014. There are no further details available at this stage about the title, but Soderlund said he's excited to see what Respawn can do with the combination of Respawn's "great attention to gameplay with the power of Star Wars."

EA has said multiple Battlefront sequels are in development, which will presumably be developed by DICE. As for Motive's new Star Wars game, development on the unannounced project is being led by former Uncharted director Amy Hennig and Assassin's Creed producer Jade Raymond.

Capital Games is working on free-to-play game Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes, while BioWare continues to work on Star Wars: The Old Republic. As for Visceral Games, it's rumored the studio is making an open-world Star Wars title, though this is not confirmed.
