Respawn Entertainment, the developers of Titanfall, area making a Star Wars game. The news comes from a letter written by Stig Asmussen, head of Respawn. Not much is revealed about the game except the following...
We’ll be making a third-person action/adventure game set in the Star Wars universe.
Now, I understand on the surface this might sound a bit dry, but developing a game within the ever-expanding Star Wars universe opens up so many paths for us to go down, and an unparalleled playground to design within. We have already planted the seeds by assembling a small, but incredibly talented team, ready for the amazing journey that lies ahead. With this in mind we are looking to expand the dream.
Now, with that information perhaps we can imply that this game will take place within the new universe? If so that's a big step for the franchise! There isn't a lot of expanded universe canon post-Disney so it would be exciting to see a game entirely based within that universe! Either way, Titanfall was an awesome game so I can't wait to see how they would handle Star Wars!
