Titanfall Developer Respawn Working On A Third-Person Action Adventure Star Wars Game

Written by Stuart Thomas on Sun, May 8, 2016 12:00 PM

Somehow a happening in the Star Wars universe slipped under my radar, but it turns out Titanfall developer Respawn is in fact working on a new Star Wars title. That’s official as well, no rumour mongering, because EA and Respawn have announced it. It’s going to be a third-person action adventure game set in the Star Wars universe.

“I am happy to announce our partnership with Electronic Arts and Lucasfilm to deliver a whole new adventure to the galaxy,” writes Respawn’s Stig Asmussen, project lead on the as-yet-untitled game.

“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. We have already planted the seeds by assembling a small, but incredibly talented team, ready for the amazing journey that lies ahead. This is the chance of a lifetime.”

Considering what Respawn has achieved in the online arena with Titanfall, you’d have to hazard a guess it would be looking at a multiplayer angle for its own title. Just what it could be is anyone’s guess, but considering the early stage of development it could be a while until we hear anything further.

Of course it’s not the only Star Wars game in development at EA. Visceral Games, of Dead Space fame, has been working a Star Wars title for a number of years now. The studio is helmed by Uncharted veteran Amy hennig, so it looks as if the two studios could be working on something similar.

Well F2P isnt crap (Planetside 2) but for a franchise like Star Wars, it wouldnt be a gud direction to move forward in.
P.S. Pay-2-Win, now thats real crap.

Windows 10 doesn't support old disc-based DRMs anymore so I bought Battlefront 2 on Steam. I'm feeling pretty good right now. ^_^

As much as i would like to see space battles i think this game will be infantry oriented.

For KOTOR you need Bioware or Obsidian, Respawn makes MOH, COD, TF.

It better be a single player game, because if one more forced online multiplayer Star Wars game is launched without at least a single player campaign included it is going to push me over the edge.

Whenever I hear about a 3rd person Star Wars game, I either think of KOTOR or the Jedi Knight series.

Me too, with one difference. I also remember how they got erased from canon.

it really sucks how they just trashed all of the expended universe. Now they are nothing more than fan fiction.

I didn't really know much about the "old" eu but since it was erased I have been playing the Jedi Knight series and reading some novels. I am also reading new canon material. I really like the legends and new canon storylines. Jedi Outcast + Jedi Academy are just so interesting in terms of the lore.

Hope it has a singleplayer campaign, unlike last year's Battlefront.

If it will be like Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast or better. I'm buying it!

There are 3 possibilities:
1- Star Wars 1313
2- Not 1313 but a true Star Wars game
3- A Disney game


If it is 1 or 2 i will pre-order it. If it is 3 i will look for some dude with eyepatch and hook hand to get the job done for me.

you missed the 4th option. If the disney game turns out to be awesome, then buy a copy.
