    A Star Wars game in the snowdrop engine would be fantastic. Too bad it will likely end up like every other Ubisoft game, an open world collectathon grind riddled with microtransactions.

    The only multiplatform studio I feel could deliver a great Star Wars game would be Rockstar. Everyone else is either Sony or Microsoft 1st party.

    Yeah but big multiplatform AAA studios don't want to make games like that, it was only made to say "hey look we're not all greedy and evil! See this, it's shiny! Don't look over there!" Ubisoft are arguably worse than EA.

    So the exclusivity deal with EA is off?

    I thought it was a 10-year deal that was signed in 2013.
    Perhaps this game is only coming out in 2023.

    They said the game is only in early development.

    I bought nothing in Division 1 or 2. So I can live with these kind of micro transactions. But I'm not a hardcore Divison player which might be motivated by collecting everything.

    I don't think Lucasfilm games can make anything Star Wars anymore, can they? Or are they part of Disney mega-conglomerate now?

    You're thinking LucasArts which was bought by Disney when they bought Star Wars. It was shuttered. LucasFilm Games brand was just brought back but it's just a licenser for LucasFilm properties. If Disney were to buy a game developer I could see them rebranding it as LucasFilm Games but I don't see that happening until they determine that the games from Ubisoft & Bethesda are considered failures. By then they will have no choice but to bring back game development in-house.

    would depend on the type of game I'd wager. I am sure Disney would want as many games bringing in money as possible esp with the dire straits they are in now

    Much more lucrative to sell the licensing & not make the games yourself. That is until the 3rd party runs the IP into the ground like EA has done.

    What a pathetic failure EA's use of SW franchise was huh... And then there is all the money they probably sunk into multiple projects that ended up canned anyway.

    Back then, I thought those were some of the best visuals around. I'm almost certain I still have it, packed up with my Gamecube somewhere.

    I'm really excited by the potential of this. I am a fan of Ubisoft open world game mechanics so combined with Star Wars, this sounds great!

    Maybe I'm weird but I kinda wish they had gone for something more interesting, like, say, Platinum, or whoever made Nier Automata. Or whoever made anything but Assassins Creed.
