Disney is aiming for two Star Wars game releases a year, insiders claim

For many years, EA was the sole developer of Star Wars video games. That exclusivity has now ended, and it seems Disney wants to take the opportunity to release new games at a steady pace.

More specifically, Insider Gaming reports that Disney plans to release Star Wars games every six months, totaling two a year. That apparently includes a triple-A release and a smaller title that many would interpret as a mobile game or something. It sounds like a demanding schedule, but keep in mind that there are already eight announced Star Wars games in the works.

Let’s go through the list. While EA no longer has exclusive rights, it announced in early 2022 that Respawn was working on three Star Wars games. One of these is Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the sequel to Fallen Order, but Respawn also has a first-person shooter and strategy game in the works. Game four comes from Amy Hennig’s studio Skydance New Media. The others are Quantic Dream’s Star Wars Eclipse, the remake of Knights of the Old Republic, the arena game Star Wars: Hunters, and a collaboration with Ubisoft’s Massive studio, which worked on The Division 2.

In terms of the six-month pattern, it’s hard to say which game will kick things off. Jedi: Survivor may release in March 2023, judging by an erroneous listing on PlayStation Network. Hunters, which fills the role of a smaller game on mobile and Nintendo Switch, was recently pushed back from 2022 to next year. KOTOR is clearly a long way off as the remake was reportedly moved to another studio over the summer. Meanwhile, Star Wars Eclipse faces problems of its own as developer Quantic Dream has been the target of repeated allegations of toxic working conditions.

Of course, these are only the games that we know. Disney certainly has more irons in the fire yet to be revealed. Streaming series like The Mandalorian and the recently launched ones Andor seem ripe for adjustments on the road.
