Lucasfilm reformed its games label earlier this year and signalled its intention to work with game developers on new projects.
It’s already announced an Indiana Jones game being developed by Bethesda’s Machine Games and a new open-world Star Wars game developed by The Division developer Ubisoft Massive.
The Massive Star Wars project is being helmed by Julian Gerighty, director of the first two The Division games, and will be powered by the studio’s Snowdrop engine. Development on the new game is said to have started nearly a year ago.
Douglas Reilly, VP of Lucasfilm Games, wrote in January: “We’re looking to work with best-in-class teams that can make great games across all of our IP.
“We’ve got a team of professionals here at Lucasfilm Games who can work with the developers, shape the stories, shape the creative, shape the games, to make them really resonate with fans and deliver across a breadth of platforms, genres, and experiences so that all of our fans can enjoy the IPs that they know and love.”
