Good News/Bad News: EA Gets Star Wars Video Game License

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 6, 2013

Now that LucasArts is out, confirms EA is in.  Electronic Arts is one of the biggest video game publishers of all time with quite the reputation.  EA has a massive warchest and marketing reach to match, but has pioneered a number of gamer-unfriendly innovations while cultivating some of the greatest franchises of recent memory.

A quote from the official announcement:

"Industry leaders and creators of best-in-class blockbuster games, the development and publishing teams at EA will collaborate with the creative teams at Lucasfilm to provide audiences with all-new gaming experiences set in the ever-expanding Star Wars galaxy. As part of the agreement, EA studio teams DICE (Battlefield series) and Visceral (Dead Space series) will join BioWare (Mass Effect series, Star Wars: The Old Republic) in the development of new Star Wars games."
