“Heroes come in all sizes, and you don’t have to be a giant hero. You can be a very small hero. It’s just as important to understand that accepting self-responsibility for the things you do, having good manners, caring about other people - these are heroic acts. Everybody has the choice of being a hero or not being a hero every day of their lives.” - George Lucas

Is this just a new sticker they’ll be putting in the bottom corner of EA games?

I believe so but I’m not sure. Details are very scarce at the moment.

I don’t play games much, but I’ll be sure to get this when it comes out. I know loads of people have been begging for an open world bounty hunter game or something like that for years. And it’s great that EA’s exclusivity has ended and more companies can come on board now.

The way I see it, Lucasfilm Games has been created as way to circumvent the exclusivity deal with EA, because it seems like Disney has realized it was a mistake with EA releasing a grand total of three games, of which only one (Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order) is truly good.

It also reinforces what I’ve been saying for years, that closing LucasArts was a mistake.

Sure wish they’d hurry up and release that Lego Skywalker Saga game.

Also a strategy game, that’s very interesting. I’ve never played many strategy games before but Dune: Spice Wars (which I think is coming this year) may get me into them. I’ll check this star wars one out.

I don’t know if the Jedi: Fallen Order sequel was confirmed before, but it definitely is now.

Long are those times when they made SIX new SW games in a single year. 😦 Of course the quality varied but at least there was something new to play.

Amy Hennig’s Skydance New Media Is Working On A New Star Wars Game

I always get a little excited when there is news of a new Star Wars game. But as it can take years to make a modern game I just hope we actually see it released, and it is not cancelled, like Amy Hennig’s previous Star Wars game was.

1990’s gaming was a brilliant time, even when there was something we didn’t like there was always another game to look forward to. And also for Star Wars games.

Bring back the time when games were announced and released later the same year. And not later in the decade.
I’m joking but, maybe only half joking.

I think I’m too long in the tooth for games these days. Even the new Lego Star Wars didn’t do much for me, although looks a lot of fun, well designed, and people love it, I was playing the old Lego Original Trilogy game from 15 years ago an hour or two later.
 

It is good to see that Amy Hennig gets another chance at doing a Star Wars game after what happened last time.

Yes. This 100%. And more fun in the game playing as well.

“The other Sequels were the result of an over-anxious press. The original intention was to make three [films], and that was really the end of it. It was not until 10 years after the first [film] that I thought of doing a back story.” - George Lucas, speaking at the Premiere of ROTS in 2005
