EA Wants to Make Their Star Wars Games a Little Like Batman: Arkham
Filed under: STAR WARS

EA CEO Andrew Wilson spoke with Fortune about their game plans for their Star Wars franchise. He explained that their games won't be based on any of the upcoming films, and they want to take a page from what Rocksteady did with their Batman: Arkham series.

"What Warner Bros. did with Batman was take the core roots of that IP and manifest that inside the walls of Gotham City and delivered an interactive experience that had real ties to what you would see in the films and what you had read in the comics, while having its own life because it could provide such deep and more immersive storylines," he said.

 
 

"When we look at the Star Wars properties that's how we're looking at it. We're not trying to build a game that replicates the storyline of any particular film."

EA's license for Star Wars is set for the next ten years. The publisher plans for DICE, BioWare, and Visceral to be part of their Star Wars future.

This sounds like very good news.. IF EA doesn't rush the games like they did with BF3 and BF4 and release a product that isn't even ready for alpha stage.

If done properly DICE can make a great Battlefront game.
If done properly Bioware can make a great KOTOR or other Star Wars RPG.

As for Visceral... Hopefully they pickup Star Wars 1313 again and do that right!

I'd also like to see another RTS game similar to the original Galactic Battlegrounds and Clone Campaigns expansion (didn't particularly care for Forces at War).

And of course rebirth the Jedi Knight series and/or Republic Commando!

;)

Haha, EA is trying to figure out why a game was good?

Poor dears. They should just give up.

We can now expect that EA's game will slavishly copy the most superficial aspects about the gameplay like the small contained open world and the lack of shooter elements. And completely ignore the bits that take competence like a story that isn't shit.

Oh great here's another franchise that EA can totally screw up.

I died a little inside when I learned that EA is going to be the one to make new generation of Star Wars games.
