Titanfall Creators Respawn developing third person Star Wars game

The studio behind Titanfall has formally announced that they will be creating a 3rd person action/adventure game set in the Star Wars Universe.

May the 4th be with you as well, Respawn! The studio behind Titanfall will be developing a third person action/adventure game set within the Star Wars universe.

Game Director Stig Asmussen confirmed the game in a letter posted to the Respawn website. Somebody rev up the engine of the Star Wars hype machine!

 "Now, I understand on the surface this might sound a bit dry, but developing a game within the ever-expanding Star Wars universe opens up so many paths for us to go down, and an unparalleled playground to design within."

-- Stig Ausmussen, Game Director 

The possibilities are truly endless when discussing the Star Wars universe. The letter didn’t give much to go on, only that the game would be third person action/adventure. For those not familiar with Respawn Entertainment, the studio is made up of key people responsible for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Stig Asmussen is the mind behind God of War 3. Titanfall was the first game from the developer and while it was definitely a lot of fun, it had its limits.


There will certainly be no limits on this game, however, as the key will be to create something large enough that it's worthy of being an adventure set within the Star Wars universe. This game will have loads of hype surrounding it. A lot of people have been less than thrilled with Star Wars Battlefront, so anything less than substantial will be met with a rude response.

What do you want from Respawn and there 3rd person Star Wars game? Are you excited for a new Star Wars game? Let us know in the comments below. Have a happy Star Wars day and May the 4th be with you!

    I thought DICE had exclusive rights to starwars games for a few years? I'm going off old information i know and I'm not sure if it was completely true, anyone able to clear this up for me?

    EA (the publisher) has exclusive license rights. DICE is a studio owned by EA, so they automatically set them to the task of making Star Wars content. Same goes for Visceral (who are making a Han Solo game), and Bioware (who are working on something secretively). It would seem Respawn's working with them now as well.

    Basically, any dev can potentially make a Star Wars game, but it needs to be approved, funded, and published by EA (and to some extent, Disney).
