Now that LucasArts is out, StarWars.com 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."
