Star Wars: EA Reportedly Will Not Let BioWare Make KOTOR Games

How long have KOTOR fans been talking about a new game? Over the years, we’ve heard a lot of talk of BioWare making a new KOTOR game the fans would love to see it happen. But now, EA has the contract on all Star Wars games and it doesn’t seem like its in the cards. BioWare has supposedly asked EA multiple times for permission to make a new KOTOR game. “They’ve tried to make it happen, more than once from what I’ve heard,” says Kotaku’s Jason Schreier on Twitter in response to a question about BioWare making another KOTOR game. “No luck.” Ugh, shot down again! That seems to be par for the course when it comes to a new KOTOR, but is there more to this tweet? There’s a story on DenofGeek about it that breaks it all down for us. “On its own, there’s not much information there, but there is more…

Troubling Times for EA Star Wars Games

We’ve written quite a bit here about the rise and fall of so many Star Wars games. In recent years, this has always included talk of Electronic Arts. That’s because EA are the only ones who can make Star Wars games, at least for now. On May 6, 2013, Disney and Electronic Arts announced that the two companies had signed a ten-year deal to make Star Wars games. This would be a deal that many would later question, as it doesn’t seem to be working out for either party as well as they had hoped. It’s certainly not working out for the fans the way that we had hoped. Kotaku recently published a piece that talks about this exact problem – EA’s Troubled Decade of Star Wars Games. Here’s part of what they had to say: “Back in 2013, Star Wars was in a rough place. The most recent movie had been 2005’s Revenge of…

EA Cancels Open-World Star Wars Game

And another one bites the dust! Sad news in the land of Star Wars games as another one has been officially cancelled. This is so frustrating, from someone who love Star Wars games and loves bringing you news and updates about new games. It seems every time we start to get excited about a potential game in the works, we get the inevitable news that it will be cancelled. It’s practically a pattern at this point! The latest victim of this trend is Electronic Arts’ open-world Star Wars games that was in process. The project was code-named Orca, according to info released by people close to EA’s Vancouver projects. It was very early in development but would involve playing as a scoundrel or bounty hunter who could explore various open-world planets and work with different factions across the Star Wars universe. Little more was known about it since it was not publicly…

Star Wars Episode IX – Release Date & More

December 2018 held a certain significance, I’m sure the same can be said for many people for many reasons, however, for fans of the Star Wars movie saga it became the first time in the past four years without a new Star Wars movie to enthuse about, see, and discuss. Initially scheduled for a May 24 release, the hotly anticipated Star Wars: Episode IX denotes the end of a trilogy; a new chapter which began with JJ Abrahams’ December 17, 2015 release of The Force Awakens, followed by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Not part of the trilogy), with Episode 8 – The Last Jedi having relayed the second part of the adventure on December 14, 2017, and the trilogy will now come to a close with the bumped back, more traditional Christmas release window of Episode IX on December 20, 2019. The news gives Star Wars fans something…

Series of EA Project Cancellations Leaves Gamers Fuming as it Under Delivers on Disney’s Star Wars Gaming Franchise

In the latest breaking news involving EA, the company failed to dispel strong rumours from reputable sources, rumours which proclaimed the cancellation of the promised, long awaited and much anticipated, future release of the next single player title meant to continue the massively popular Star Wars saga. Initially developed under the codename Ragtag which aimed at creating a linear gameplay adventure. However, a mid-2017 reimagining refocused the teams to instead develop an open world environment re-focused on delivering a broader player experience. Ironically this mid-2017 reimagining seemingly is possibly also the reason for the project’s death, since developing “a broader experience” would apparently have required too long a build period, driving costs up. The most common fan response to that would be somewhere along the lines of “come-on EA, Bethesda managed to create just such a series of open world games with each episode of The Elder Scrolls series and…

Have Fun, be Happy

Even though its only early 2019 we are seeing some awesome indie games already, those games created by independent developers who do not have the backing of any major corporate publisher. You would think would be a big drawback but in fact, with some publishers becoming unwilling to take the chance on a creative and unique idea, very many of them stay focused on the already established franchises looking to the dollar instead. Indie games don’t have this problem, and many of them over the last few years have actually managed to surpass their AAA competition both in the terms of the game being valued and also in the quality of the game. The notion that indie games are somewhat inferior because of the low budget is simply untrue, and to ignore the indie games would be denying a whole lot of great gaming action. Take Hyper Light Drifter by…
