According to EA Labels president Frank Gibeau, three studios are already working on Star Wars games: Battlefield developer DICE, Dead Space developer Visceral and Mass Effect developer BioWare.

 

 

In a blog post on EA's official site, Gibeau confirmed that the new projects will be powered by "the Frostbite 3 development engine – guaranteeing incredible graphic fidelity, environments and characters."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Battlefront 3 and Kotor 3 are definite possibilities now.  I'm hoping they announce an actual new Kotor game.

I would delete every poster on this board for KOTOR3.

That's a hell of a pedigree of studios working on the games.  High hopes.

I tend to only like games based on original concepts, not games based on Lord of the Rings, Star Wars or Batman.

 

I will say that Star Wars Episode I: Racer holds a special place in my heart, though. If done right it could be a decent game.

 

Star Wars Episode I: Racer 2 perhaps?

EA ruins about anything.  Just look at the Sim City release.  Or the fact that PC gamers ignore almost ANY game that activates via EA's Origin service.  Hopefully they don't ruin it, but I wouldn't have too many high hopes.

To be fair, Battlefield 3 is still far and away the best shooter on the market....

I'm excited because BioWare has the licenses and the naming rights to do a Kotor 3 and they are the original studio behind the first one. If they don't name it Kotor 3 (which would surprise me), I think it's easy to say that Bioware is at least working on a Star Wars RPG game.

This is an exception, not a rule.  I think Dice pretty much runs the BF side of things, thankfully.
