EA Reportedly Canceled Star Wars Open-World Game
The project of Star Wars Open-World Game was in the hands of EA Vancouver after the closure of Visceral Games.
It seems that the story between Electronic Arts and Star Wars is still going through an area of turbulence, which at times would seem interminable, because a few moments ago it was revealed that the open world title of the franchise, in the hands of EA Vancouver, was canceled.
A few minutes ago, Jason Schreier, journalist of Kotaku, revealed that 3 reliable sources and related to what happens in EA, informed him that the game of Star Wars open world was canceled by the company.
According to the information obtained and published by Schreier, the origin of this title is after the closure of Visceral Games and the abrupt end of the Star Wars game that they were developing, which had the code name “Ragtag” and had the support of EA Vancouver. Once EA announced that Visceral would no longer exist, the EA Vancouver team maintained some elements of what was “Ragtag” and from there started a new development process that would be an open-world title.
It is worth mentioning that, although there is a relationship at the origin, the proposal was different because the title of Visceral was linear and focused on the narrative, while that of EA Vancouver pointed to the open world and was expected to work with a design of game as a service.
However, as time passed, nothing was known about that Star Wars game and the related information was limited to the changes that EA carried out around EA Motive, which brought that studio to EA Vancouver, but after that there was no more information about it, until today, which, pending confirmation of EA, it was revealed that the title of open world Star Wars will not happen.
