Today Lucasfilm Games announced a new open-world Star Wars game that it is developing with Ubisoft. This will be a story-driven game that will come to life with the help of Massive Entertainment, Ubisoft’s studio that is based Malmö, Sweden.

“We’re really excited about an opportunity to work with the team at Massive, led by David Polfeldt and the creative director, Julian Gerighty. We’ve spent almost a year now, working to get to know them and what they want to bring to the table,” Lucasfilm Games VP Douglas Reilly shared. “I’m a huge fan of them, personally. I think we’re really excited about where that project is going, because they have a unique vision for the story and the game they want to deliver.”

Of course, Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment have a reputation for developing immersive worlds as they push technology to new limits. This will be done with their proprietary engine called Snowdrop. “We know that fans of Star Wars value the feeling of immersion — of being transported into the Star Wars galaxy and moving through richly-detailed environments. It’s fun to imagine what the team at Massive can do within Star Wars by bringing their innovative spirit and their commitment to quality,” Reilly says.

While there are a lot of changes and new things coming to the Star Wars video game space, some classics will still be sticking around. Reilly confirmed that Lucasfilm Game’s collaboration with EA will continue. This relationship has resulted in games like the Battlefront series, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and Star Wars: Squadrons. This relationship will continue to move forward. “We’re really proud of the games we have created with EA,” Reilly says. “We will continue working with them and our relationship has never been stronger. While we may not have a lot of details to share at the moment, we’ve got a number of projects underway with the talented teams at EA.”

With the recent return to the Lucasfilm Games branding, the future looks to be bright for those who enjoy videogames from the Star Wars galaxy. As more games continue to be developed, they will fit within the larger canon of Star Wars. This will continue to happen moving forward Reilly confirmed. This will lead to new Star Wars games and also games from other parts of the Lucasfilm library.
