Disney hires EA to make Star Wars games

EA labels president Frank Gibeau has announced that Disney has chosen EA to make new Star Wars games.

Gibeau revealed that the EA studios working on Star Wars titles will include DICE, Visceral, and BioWare.

The games will be “entirely original with all new stories” and will use DICE’s Frostbite 3 engine.

Games will be in development for the gamut of devices, including PC, consoles, tablets, and mobile.

Walt Disney Company acquired LucasFilm, LucasArts, and the Star Wars franchise back in October 2012 for a smidge over US$4-billion. In April 2013 Disney decided to close down LucasArts.
