Respawn joins the stable of devs making Star Wars games for EA

Electronic Arts announced today that it has cut a deal with Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment that will see the studio building a new third-person "action adventure game" bearing the Star Wars brand.

Electronic Arts announced today that it has cut a deal with Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment that will see the studio building a new third-person "action adventure game" bearing the Star Wars brand.

The folks at Respawn are already working on at least one other project, Titanfall 2, which makes it all the more interesting that they're the first major external team to work with EA on a Star Wars game.

EA Studios VP Patrick Söderlund noted in a blog post that Respawn joins a slew of EA-owned studios that are already working on Star Wars games, including Visceral Games, DICE, Motive, and BioWare.

The company has gone hard on Star Wars since acquiring the rights to create and publish "core" Star Wars games in 2013, and that strategy paid dividends over the holidays when EA DICE's Star Wars Battlefront (pictured) fueled a profitable quarter for the company.
