An upcoming Star Wars game is in the works, which was announced during the latest investor conference held by Electronic Arts. According to CosmicBook.news, the site reported that Andrew Wilson confirmed that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was on the way along with a new Titanfall game, even though EA just recently rolled out the Apex Legends Battle Royale game for home consoles and PC.
Details on the upcoming Star Wars game are brisk, but it was actually announced in passing while EA revealed to investors that Battlefield V failed to live up to the third-quarter expectations.
In fact, Battlefield V failed so badly during the holiday rush due to focusing on “diversity and inclusion”, as well as rewriting World War II history, that the game ended up making it on the Get Woke; Go Broke master list.
As for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, it will take place between Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope and will be a single-player, third-person action-adventure game. So it sounds like a retcon of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.
A release date wasn’t set for the game but the window was set for “this fall”.
Also, don’t expect any intervention from Disney as far quality control is concerned. According to CEO Bob Iger, they won’t be interfering with the gaming industry anymore, as they’ve taken a backseat when it comes to interactive entertainment, only licensing out the Star Wars property instead of publishing games. According to Variety, Iger told investors…
“We’re good at making films and television shows and theme parks and cruise ships and the like, we’ve just never managed to demonstrate much skill on the publishing side of games, […]”
“We’re obviously mindful of the size of that business. Over the years, as you know, we’ve tried our hand at self-publishing, we’ve bought companies, we’ve sold companies, we’ve bought developers, we’ve closed developers. And we’ve found over the years that we haven’t been particularly good at the self-publishing side, but we’ve been great at the licensing side which obviously doesn’t require that much allocation of capital.
“Since we’re allocating capital in other directions … we’ve just decided that the best place for us to be in that space is licensing and not publishing. We’ve had good relationships with some of those we’re licensing to, notably EA and the relationship on the Star Wars properties, and we’re probably going to stay on that side of the business and put our capital elsewhere.”
Given that EA has an awful reputation right now, and has become engrossed in Leftist propaganda, there’s little hope that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will turn out to be a good game. If they actually want to lure gamers in they need to abandon the loot boxes, get rid of the SJWism, and get back to making good, fun games for normal people. But considering that gamers were told not to buy Battlefield V if they were unwilling to accept EA’s Social Justice Warrior historical revisionism, I have little hope for the outcome of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
