It seems that Ubisoft brings good news for fans of the Star Wars universe. And it is that the company, through its Massive Entertainment studio located in Sweden, has announced the development of a video game based on this franchise which has been said to be open world.
In this sense, no details have been offered about the moment in which this game is expected to be launched, nor about the platforms on which it will be released or the part of the Star Wars universe in which its development will focus.
What you do know about it is that it will be built with the help of Ubisoft’s snowdrop engine, which is known to be the architect of the technology involved in the creation of The Division series.
In an event held this week, Disney took the initiative to rename its games division Lucasfilm Games, seeing this as the beginning of a new era.
From there, the company announced that, in addition to being working on the development of Ubisoft’s Star Wars game, they are also launching the creation of a video game about Indiana Jones, a task that would be in charge of the Bethesda MachineGames studio.
In the past, the EA studio became the main developer of the video games that set the standard within the Star Wars franchise and that resulted in games such as the open world Jedi, Battlefront, Fallen Order and Squadrons, a space combat game released last year.
Disney stated that its relationship with Ubisoft will continue even when there are other developers working on creating Star Wars video games.
For his part, the vice president of Lucasfilm Games, Douglas Reilly expressed the following: “We are very proud of the games we have created with EA [..] We will continue to work with them and our relationship has never been stronger. Although we don’t have many details to share at the moment, we have several projects underway with the talented teams at EA.»
