Recently there was a report about how EA had apparently cancelled an open world Star Wars game that was in development. Following the controversy of Star Wars: Battlefront 2’s loot boxes, we’re sure many were wondering what would become of EA’s Star Wars games in the future.

For those who have enjoyed the publisher’s take on Star Wars games, you can rest assured that they will not be going anywhere. In a statement made to Variety, EA has expressed that they remain fully committed to making more Star Wars games in the future. The statement does not confirm or deny the cancellation reports, but it does acknowledge it, which we suppose kind of says something already. However that’s just speculation on our part.

According to the statement, “There’s been speculation overnight about one of our ‘Star Wars’ projects. As a natural part of the creative process, the great work by our team in Vancouver continues and will evolve into future ‘Star Wars’ content and games. We’re fully committed to making more ‘Star Wars’ games, we’re very excited about ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ from Respawn, and we’ll share more about our new projects when the time is right.”

The Star Wars game in development was initially developed by Visceral Games before they were shut down. The game then got transferred to EA Vancouver who then transformed the linear game into an open world one. It is unclear why it got shelved so don’t get your hopes up about seeing it anytime soon.
