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.

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.

I doubt kotor3 will ever happen as that's what swtor was essentially supposed to be.  Everyone is chomping at the bit to make the next wow replacement that ends in glorious failure(I'm looking at you, elder scrolls online).

I think Elder Scrolls can be successful if they choose one of two models.  The first is GW2 model, buy the game, and then cash shop with NO pay-to-win crap.  Second is buy the game at full price (maybe only sell for like $30) and then charge a reasonable monthly fee, maybe in the range of $5-8.  That's cheaper than a movie ticket each month.  $14 for WoW is just so rediculous, even moreso this far into its life.   Of course, I'm just guessing that ESO will actually be good, have a fun end-game, etc etc lol.  No one will "replace" WoW though.  They need to go in with the BF3 mindset and hope to take a CHUNK out of WoW playerbase (like BF3 did to CoD).

 

There are too many p2w MMO's coming out and people are getting really tired of them.  For example, Neverwinter is in "open beta" right now and while I like it after playing an hour or so, it's like 100% p2w.  There are other examples too. 

 

But EA's origins is just bad.  Just today there is a bunch of deals on games like Dragon Age, Kingdoms of Amalar, but everyone in the comments is skipping because of Origins and not Steam.  I myself would buy the KoA complete for $7 if it was on Steam.  Give it up EA, you can't beat Steam or even get close to it.
