A Marvel game already in the works
I’ve often described how seeing Star Wars in 1977 rewired my 12-year-old brain, indelibly shaping my creative life and my future. I’m thrilled to be working with Lucasfilm Games again to tell interactive stories in this galaxy that I love so much.
No further details were given, or even a release window. One thing is certain, the future of Star Wars in the world of video games looks bright. Remember that other adaptations are in preparation at Electronic Arts and Respawn (Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order 2), Ubisoft and Massive, Sony and Aspyr and also Quantic Dream with its famous Star Wars Eclipse. For its part, Skydance New Media is also already busy with its Marvel narrative game announced last October.
