This is not the first time Respawn Entertainment has worked on the Star Wars series. If you don’t know, the studio released the rather fantastic Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and is currently set to release its sequel in 2022. The studio also worked on games such as Titanfall and Apex Legends so they have already proven to be quite proficient in FPS game development.
Game Director Stig Asmussen and his team at the studio are already working on the next game in the action adventure Star Wars Jedi series, and are joined by two new teams working to deliver additional unique Star Wars gameplay experiences across multiple genres.
Leading the development of Respawn’s all-new Star Wars first-person shooter game is Peter Hirschmann, Game Director at Respawn, who has a long and accomplished history with the Star Wars franchise.
The third title is a Star Wars strategy game developed through a production collaboration with the newly formed studio Bit Reactor, helmed by games industry veteran Greg Foerstch. Respawn will produce the new Star Wars strategy game while Bit Reactor leads on the development of the title.
Peter Hirschmann, game director at Respawn says that working in partnership with Lucasfilm Games is a dream come true. He will now be able to tell the story he has always wanted to tell.
If you’re excited to play these new Star Wars games you best exercise patience. EA has only just begun working on the games so it is going to be quite some time before we get to see them in the flesh. Still, it is great news that these games are coming our way.
