Ubisoft Is Creating An Open-World Star Wars Game

We sense a disturbance in the force.

Ubisoft has been busy working on The Division series but apparently has started working on a game in a galaxy far, far away. Today, Ubisoft announced one of its studios, Massive Entertainment, is creating an open-world Star Wars game.

For now, the details are rather limited and we don’t have specifics on release date, era, or what the story will be about. What we do know is the open-world Star Wars game will be built on Ubisoft’s Snowdrop engine, the same one that was used in The Division series.

There’s been a lot of commotion in the Star Wars world recently. Earlier this week, Disney rebranded its gaming sector to Lucasfilm Games as it pushes forward into the world of Star Wars video games.

Disney calls this power move a “new era” for the studio. They’ve put in some serious work after the rebrand. We’ve already gotten word of the first Lucasfilm game using the brand, an Indiana Jones game from Bethesda.

Before Lucasfilm Games was in charge, EA had previously developed all of the Star Wars games as they had the exclusive rights for a while. EA did a pretty good job creating the Battlefront series and the recent Jedi: Fallen Order and Squadrons games. I personally really enjoyed the Jedi: Fallen Order and would love to play a sequel.

Disney said these titles will still continue development outside of Lucasfilm Games titles. It looks like Disney is getting really serious about its gaming division. We’re excited to learn more about Ubisoft’s new open-world Star Wars game as they eventually release more information. For now, I’m excited to hear it’s a real thing. Thanks, Disney!
