Respawn (Titanfall devs) making a Star Wars game

...led by Stig Asmussen of God of War fame. From the horse's mouth:

At EA right now, we have multiple studios building a variety of great Star Wars games spanning different genres. We are all united by our teams’ passion for Star Wars™ stories, characters, and adventures.

Today, I’m thrilled to be able to announce that EA and the talented team at Respawn Entertainment have expanded our relationship to include the development of an all-new 3rd person action adventure game set in the Star Wars universe. They join our other great studios – Visceral Games, DICE, Capital Games, BioWare, Motive and more – who are currently working on Star Wars projects. If you’re interested in joining us on this adventure, you can visit our Careers page – we have openings at Visceral and Motive and will be sharing more on these experiences soon.

Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with Vince Zampella and his group. 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.

There’s never been a better time to be a Star Wars fan. The passion we’re seeing for Star Wars from gamers – whether they’ve been along for the ride since Star Wars™: Episode IV: A New Hope™, or were introduced to the magic of Star Wars with Star Wars™: The Force Awakens™ – is fueling our development teams and our partners to create unique interactive extensions of this deep, meaningful universe. As a game maker, nothing is more exciting.

Thank you and May the Fourth be with you,

Patrick
We don't know too much yet. Unreal Engine 4. Third-person action-adventure.

I'm looking forward to what else Respawn can do with Star Wars. Outside of Bioware, i'm probably the most interesting in what they can do.

Re: Respawn (Titanfall devs) making a Star Wars game

So this came out of an earnings call for EA:

They also revealed that developer Respawn’s upcoming action title based in the “Star Wars” universe will hit late 2019/early 2020 which suggests it will take the slot “Star Wars Battlefield 3” would have taken if the sequel had been a success.

Re: Respawn (Titanfall devs) making a Star Wars game

I would not be surprised if BattleFRONT3 (why did they say Battlefield?) isn't a real thing. How much more could they add in terms of ingenuity short of new maps and skins? We could get that with DLC. Hopefully Respawn doesn't given us some half-assed game like The Force Unleashed... I'd really like to see a KOTOR type game.

Great studio. I'm glad to see it's not being cannibalized by other EA offshoots. It's still a shame that Titanfall 2 got sent out to die. It had a great campaign and very solid MP.
