Respawn Entertainment, creators of Titanfall, announced that they’re working on a third-person action/adventure game set in the Star Wars universe.
“Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with Vince Zampella and his group,” says Patrick Söderlund, VP of EA Studios. “Their obsession with making games that feel amazing has helped make Titanfall one of the most successful new game launches of this generation. And now, with a new team led by Stig Asmussen, we get to see what they can do when you combine that great attention to gameplay with the power of Star Wars.”
“Developing a game within the ever-expanding Star Wars universe opens up so many paths for us to go down, and an unparalleled playground to design within,” adds Asmussen, who previously worked on the God of War series before joining Respawn in 2014. “We have already planted the seeds by assembling a small, but incredibly talented team, ready for the amazing journey that lies ahead.”
Amy Hennig, Creative Director on the Star Wars project at Visceral Games, provided clarification for those who think it’s the same game she’s directing:
To clarify, both Visceral and Respawn are working on separate Star Wars action-adventure games. Great stuff coming! https://t.co/ct3iAvgC6y
