Next week's EA Play Live sideboard the publisher has confirmed that it will not include any new Star Wars games, which will be added to a list of confirmed no-shows, including Dragon Age 4 and the new Mass Effect game. That's not to say that EA doesn't have Star Wars games planned: "We all look forward to celebrating next year when we share our vision of the Galaxy far, far away," EA's Star Wars Twitter account promised.
EA retained the exclusive right to develop Star Wars games until January, when Disney announced the reactivation of Lucasfilm Games. Shortly afterwards, Ubisoft announced a Star Wars open world game in development at Massive Entertainment. This will not stop the interests of EA Star Wars, with the publisher securing quickly who will continue to develop games for the series.
Nothing is confirmed, but Respawn is currently recruiting roles for his Star Wars team, pointing to a possible sequel to Jedi Fallen Order. Rumors were circulating earlier this year Reddit that a third installment of the modern Star Wars Battlefront series is in development at DICE.
At this stage, with some of the next most exciting EA games discarded for the showcase, it looks like EA Play Live will be pretty focused on Battlefield 2042, EA Sports titles and maybe some Apex Legends news. A Restart Dead Space it is also rumored a lot.
EA Play Live takes place on 22 July at 10.00 PT / 13.00 ET / 18.00 BST or at 03.00 on 23 July in Australia.
