Fans of Quantic Dream’s previous titles should know exactly what that means – a robust story that’s sure to give many players an emotional experience.
Unannounced Star Wars Games
Three Respawn Entertainment Games
While none of these titles were officially announced, Respawn Entertainment is confirmed to be making three new Star Wars games. This is most likely thanks to the success of Jedi: Fallen Order; one of the announced games is a sequel to Fallen Order, after all. The other announcements include an FPS title and a strategy game. These announced games have yet to be shown off in any capacity, but it’s likely EA will look at the reception from previous Star Wars titles to improve their handling of the franchise.
Open World Ubisoft Game
In 2021, Ubisoft was revealed to be working on an open world Star Wars game. While fans might expect something similar to the many Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry games spearheaded by the company, this Star Wars title is said to have more in common with Tom Clancy’s The Division, using the same engine and director. What this means has yet to be seen, but players are likely in for an experience more unique than they realize.
Thus far, this is every Star Wars game confirmed to be in development. There will likely be more announcements in the near future, especially since companies outside of EA are making new games in the franchise. Star Wars fans can expect this decade to be filled with many great adventures throughout the galaxy they know and love.
