Electronic Arts has had a somewhat tumultuous relationship with Star Wars since it acquired the franchise's exclusive game license in 2013.

Nearly six years, a studio closure, and a handful of canceled projects later, DICE is the only EA studio to have put out a AAA Star Wars game, leading many fans to question the publisher's plans for the franchise. Now, following yesterday's reported cancellation of EA Vancouver's open-world game, we've decided to [...]

He spoke to Patrick Gilmore (Studio Head), Scot Lane (Game Director), and Rich Lawrence (Executive Producer). PG: Patrick Gilmore, Studio Head; SL: Scot Lane, Game Director; RL: Rich Lawrence, Executive Producer This is hardly the first Amazon Game Studios title (the first one that comes to mind for me is Airport Mania), but New World could be the most ambitious.
