EA has no plans to slow down on developing new Star Wars projects despite losing exclusivity.
During the recent earnings call, the company’s CEO Andrew Wilson said that its deal with Disney has already generated over $3 billion in net bookings. EA is about to continue to make new games in the popular franchise.
“You should expect us to continue to invest in our Star Wars relationship. It’s been very profitable, to this point, over $3 billion in net bookings and we’re excited by what we’ll be able to do in the future. But you shouldn’t read this as necessarily us building less titles,” Wilson said.
Electronic Arts released a few notable Star Wars games throughout the last seven years, including Jedi: Fallen Order and Battlefront. Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, its most successful title under the license, generated over $1.2 billion in revenue.
The company secured an exclusive ten-year deal with Disney, but the recent reestablishing of Lucasfilm Games will allow other studios to develop their own Star Wars games.
