If you think there are already many Star Wars games out there, then prepare for more to come. Electronic Arts has partnered with Lucasfilm Games to launch three new titles. There will be a first-person shooter, a strategy game, and the next title in the Star Wars Jedi series. All three are being developed by Respawn Entertainment.

While Respawn is known for its Titanfall series and Apex Legends, it's also responsible for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. This should put Star Wars fans at ease.

Here are some details of these upcoming titles:

  • Star Wars Jedi Story
    • Game Director: Stig Asmussen.
  • First-Person Shooter
    • Game Director: Peter Hirschmann
  • Strategy Game
    • Respawn has partnered with Bit Reactor with industry veteran Greg Foertsch at the helm.

In a post, Lucasfilm Games VP Douglas Reilly shared that they are excited to continue working with Respawn. He added that Respawn has long shown how good they are in telling Star Wars stories and looking forward to offering more experiences in the Star Wars galaxy.

Walt Disney Games SVP Sean Shoptaw said that this latest partnership shows the trust and mutual respect shared between the teams at Lucasfilm Games, EA, and Respawn. He went on to say that given the expertise and passion present within each team, they're going to come up with original games aimed at diverse audiences across the Star Wars galaxy.

Respawn Game Director Peter Hirschmann said that being able to work with Lucasfilm Games on an FPS set in the Star Wars galaxy is truly a dream come true. Hirschmann was part of LucasArts as its VP of development. He was also the executive producer on the original Star Wars Battlefront games.

Finally, Respawn Founder Vince Zampella gave his two cents saying that they have long been fans of Star Wars, and they're thrilled to work with Lucasfilm Games on these new titles. Now, Respawn is looking for different talents to be part of its team.

What do you think? Does the Star Wars galaxy really need three new games?
