    For nearly 10 years, EA has held exclusivity on rights to develop Star Wars games, a deal that many have felt limited the number and kinds of releases that could utilize the license. While the publisher has had a few major successes in the realm, most notably with the recent Jedi: Fallen Order and Squadrons games, there's also been a fraught history of false starts and canceled titles that never saw the light of day.
    The formation of Lucasfilm Games was announced earlier this week, a banner and licensor for Star Wars games. Speculation that EA would be losing Star Wars exclusivity was...

    The Star Wars galaxy is expanding outward again, as a new open world game is in development at Ubisoft's Massive Entertainment studio-not at EA.

    3 days ago - By Game Skinny

    Ubisoft's Massive Entertainment, makers of Tom Clancy's The Division and Far Cry 3 , is working on a new Star Wars game together with the newly re-formed Lucalfilm Games studio.
