Back in 2013, Disney partnered with the “FIFA” company to develop multiple Star Wars titles. They wanted to have a staggering career in the gaming industry, just like the one in Hollywood. So, they published top games like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, LEGO Star Wars, Squadrons, Battle Front II, and many more.

However, with time, they realized that they were lagging behind their opponents, conditioning them to publish more titles. As a result, they came down to the conclusion to develop one Star Wars exclusive every six months.

Disney has been the prime example of this, as they have pitched a unique strategy for their upcoming titles. They have decided to drop a fresh title for one of the most fan-loved series, giving users a vast library to choose from. The information comes from random sources who have confirmed eight titles that will be released in the next few years. Here’s how they look:

  • Amy Hennig’s Game – Skydance Media
  • Untitled FPS – Respawn Entertainment
  • Open World Game – Ubisoft Massive
  • Star Wars: Eclipse – Quantic Dream
  • Knights of the Old Republic Remake – Saber Interactive
  • Jedi: Survivor (Fallen Order sequel) – Respawn Entertainment
  • Star Wars: Hunters – Zynga
  • Untitled Strategy Game – Respawn Entertainment

Tom Henderson, the popular gaming journalist, made this announcement public, as he also mentioned the possibility of a few more titles on this list. He believes that the franchise is in constant talks with EA to introduce more and more titles, and ultimately steer clear of the competition. 

Quantic Dream – A major issue? 

Quantic Dream Star Wars: Eclipse will be a challenge for the developers as it requires some high-end equipment and engines. Sadly, its current engine looks problematic for development, causing havoc to the entire team.
