The Titanfall developers at Respawn is working with EA to make new Star Wars game, and it won’t be a shooter.
Repsawn Entertainment previously worked on the Titanfall franchise, has confirmed they’ll be making a third-person action-adventure game based in the Star Wars universe, the Director Stig Asmussen says the feature “larger-than-life action and groundbreaking mechanics.”
“We’ll be making a third-person action/adventure game set in the Star Wars universe,” Respawn game director Stig Asmussen announced in a blog post. “We promise to pay respect to the Star Wars legacy at all times, a fact that will be constantly reinforced and honored as a central game design tenet. Fans should expect the exemplary level of quality first established at Respawn with Titanfall, a game that epitomizes our studio’s dedication to slick, larger-than-life action and fun, groundbreaking mechanics.”
“Now, I understand on the surface this might sound a bit dry, but 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. With this in mind, we are looking to expand the dream.”
Respawn already announced Titanfall 2 just last month, which is confirming later in 2016.
Star Wars fans are quite nervous given Titanfall 2 isn’t yet finished, and Respawn is already taking on a juggernaut project, and DICE’s rather empty Battlefront reboot has left a bad taste in our mouth.
Hopefully, Repsawn finishes the Titanfall 2 properly before starting another project.
