Electronic Arts released on Monday, 6, a partnership with Disney to be the publisher behind the new Star Wars titles. The agreement provides for a partnership to publish titles based on the characters and stories of the successful movie franchise.
This way, EA will have exclusivity on the development of standard games for PC and consoles, while Disney can produce games for mobile and social platforms.
The DICE stadiums, responsible for the development of Battlefield, and Visceral, which produces Dead Space, will thus join BioWare, which already works in the MMORPG “Star Wars: The Old Republic” for the creation of other games under the brand. They all work under the EA seal.
The company announced that the next Star Wars games will be developed on the Frostbite 3 engine, which should be the basis for the graphics of the company’s new generation games and should be capable of incredible images.
Earlier this year, Disney had announced the closure of the LucasArts stadium, which came with the acquisition of Lucasfilm, just last year. The entertainment giant, at the time, claimed that the measure was intended to privilege the licensing model, rather than the franchise’s own game development.
Other terms of the contract have not yet been released.
