    The Walt Disney Company and EA Announce Multi-Year Star Wars Games Agreement

    The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) and Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today announced a new multi-year exclusive licensing agreement to develop and publish globally new games based on Star Wars characters and storylines.

The new experiences we create may borrow from films, but the games will be entirely original with all new stories and gameplay.”

    Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

    So looks like DICE will be doing Battlefront 3

    Really?!?!?!

    This partnership shall be interesting. Would rather see the license not be exclusive so EA has to actually try and has competition.
    It's funny that in this day in age people can steal as long as they have a reason too. Even if that reason is created by the thieves themselves.

    Well...if DICE were to make Battlefront 3 that would be AMAZING. I mean...Frostbite+Battlefront? Damn! I just hope they keep the classic mechanics in.

    Bit depressing. Star Wars games full of micro-transactions and online passes? Can't wait.

    DICE could potentially make a cool Battlefront game, I just worry that they are, as a studio, pretty dry and lack the ability to capture the essence of Star Wars. Bioware? Ugh. Long time ago they made decent SW games. They aren't the same studio these days and were always overrated anyway, their contribution could be a car crash.

    I am interested to see if/what Visceral make though.

    A redeeming factor I suppose is that Star Wars games will release... There will be none of the Lucasarts faffing around and shooting themselves in the foot.
