Respawn Entertainment, the developers behind Titanfall and its sequel, are working on a 3rd person game set in the Star Wars universe.
Stig Asmussen has taken to the Respawn Blog to speak about the partnership and give some detail about what this means for the studio and the series going forward. After a successful launch with Titanfall, the studio has a very positive and busy future in the industry.
I am happy to announce our partnership with Electronic Arts and Lucasfilm to deliver a whole new adventure to the galaxy.
For me, just typing these words is surreal. I have been playing Star Wars games my whole life, now I get to make a Star Wars game. On top of that, I get to do it at Respawn, a studio comprised of the most talented collection of game makers, creators, visionaries, and (most importantly) advocates for the player, that I have had the good fortune to work with. And we, like you all, have no shortage of Star Wars passion.
Stig goes on to explain what type of game we’ll see from Respawn, hopefully this takes ideas from the canned 1313 game we saw years back, something totally different in the Star Wars universe.
We’ll be making a third-person action/adventure game set in the Star Wars universe.
Now, I understand on the surface this might sound a bit dry, but developing a game within the ever-expanding Star Wars universe opens up so many paths for us to go down, and an unparalleled playground to design within. We have already planted the seeds by assembling a small, but incredibly talented team, ready for the amazing journey that lies ahead. With this in mind we are looking to expand the dream.
We’re so happy to hear that this partnership is happening, the Star Wars universe has so much potential and there’s so many routes to choose from.
