Ubisoft’s Studios Working on New Star Wars Game

Closely following the announcement that LucasFilm Games would be working with MachineGames and Bethesda on a new Indiana Jones video game, it has also been confirmed they will be working with the development team at Ubisoft’s Massive Entertainment studio on a new instalment in the Star Wars franchise. This brings an end to a prolonged period which Electronic Arts exclusively developed games in the legendary science fiction film franchise.

Ubisoft has confirmed that the (currently untitled) Star Wars game will be a story-driven, open-world experience. Other details are currently limited, but they have highlighted that the game will “[gather] some of the most experienced, innovative talent in the video games industry and will make the most of Massive’s cutting-edge technologies, including the Snowdrop engine, to deliver a groundbreaking Star Wars adventure.”

Massive Entertainment is not unfamiliar with delivering story-driven, open-world games, being lead developers of Tom Clancy’s The Division 1 & 2. This is their first major foray into the genre however, so time will tell how them taking to the stars will fare.

The vast Star Wars lore is an incredible source of inspiration for our teams. This is the beginning of a long-term collaboration with Disney and Lucasfilm Games, and we are pleased to be working hand-in-hand to build upon the incredible legacy of Lucasfilm to create a game that we know Star Wars fans will love.

Yves Guillemot – Co-Founder and CEO of Ubisoft

Ubisoft have a unique talent for crafting immersive worlds so we’re thrilled to work with them on this project. We are inspired by the passion and talent of the team at Massive, and together we share a vision for the type of original stories we want to tell with our players in this expansive galaxy. They have the creativity, experience, and community understanding to bring awe-inspiring authenticity, depth and innovation to this new Star Wars game.

Douglas Reilly – VP of Lucasfilm Games

In the Star Wars galaxy and beyond, we work with the best teams in the industry to create world-class games that push the boundaries of the medium. Lucasfilm Games and Massive Entertainment together can create something truly unique for our fans across the globe.

Sean Shoptaw – SVP of Disney Games and Interactive Experiences

This is a lore that we love, and we want to do it justice with a game and story that bring both lifelong and new fans on an immersive and outstanding journey that will stay with them for years.

Julian Gerighty – Creative Director of the Untitled Star Wars Game
