May the Fourth be with you, all! Today, on what has become national Star Wars Day, Respawn Entertainment, makers of the original Titanfall, has announced that they will be embarking on a new journey, one that leads them to a galaxy far, far away. That is right, folks! They are partnering with Lucasfilm Ltd and Electronic Arts to deliver a new adventure!
Not many details about the title were revealed today, other than it will be a third-person action/adventure game set in the Star Wars universe. Apparently the company erupted into cheers when this title was announced as being their next big project. Stig Asmussen, game director at Respawn Entertainment, had this to say about the exciting announcement.
“For me, just typing these words is surreal. I have been playing Star Wars games my whole life, now I get to make a Star Wars game. On top of that, I get to do it at Respawn, a studio comprised of the most talented collection of game makers, creators, visionaries, and (most importantly) advocates for the player, that I have had the good fortune to work with. And we, like you all, have no shortage of Star Wars passion.”
No details, no dates, and no specific part of the universe were announced today, so that leaves us to wonder, fantasize, and speculate until the title is fleshed out a little more. (Maybe at E3?) Respawn Entertainment did announce though that they are hiring in all departments, so be sure to check that out if it interests you!
