EA Shuts Down Visceral Games + Upcoming Star Wars Videogame To Be Reworked

Electronic Arts is closing the Visceral Studios and the upcoming Star Wars videogame that was being developed there will now be developed directly by EA. The game was originally slated for a 2019 release but that date has now been postponed....

From Electronic Arts Executive VP Patrick Söderlund:

Our industry is evolving faster and more dramatically than ever before. The games we want to play and spend time with, the experiences we want to have in those games, and the way we play…all those things are continually changing. So is the way games are made. In this fast-moving space, we are always focused on creating experiences that our players want to play…and today, that means we’re making a significant change with one of our upcoming titles.

Our Visceral studio has been developing an action-adventure title set in the Star Wars universe. In its current form, it was shaping up to be a story-based, linear adventure game. Throughout the development process, we have been testing the game concept with players, listening to the feedback about what and how they want to play, and closely tracking fundamental shifts in the marketplace. It has become clear that to deliver an experience that players will want to come back to and enjoy for a long time to come, we needed to pivot the design. We will maintain the stunning visuals, authenticity in the Star Wars universe, and focus on bringing a Star Wars story to life. Importantly, we are shifting the game to be a broader experience that allows for more variety and player agency, leaning into the capabilities of our Frostbite engine and reimagining central elements of the game to give players a Star Wars adventure of greater depth and breadth to explore.

This move leads to a few other changes:

A development team from across EA Worldwide Studios will take over development of this game, led by a team from EA Vancouver that has already been working on the project. Our Visceral studio will be ramping down and closing, and we’re in the midst of shifting as many of the team as possible to other projects and teams at EA.

Lastly, while we had originally expected this game to launch late in our fiscal year 2019, we’re now looking at a new timeframe that we will announce in the future.

Bringing new Star Wars games to life for every passionate fan out there is what drives us as creators. It’s what has inspired us to deliver the massive new Star Wars Battlefront II experience launching in just a few weeks. It fuels our live service in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes. Making games in the extraordinary Star Wars universe is truly a dream for so many of us at EA, and we have so many more experiences to come for players on every platform. We want to take the time to get each game right, to make it unique, to make it amazing.

Battlefront II Locations Revealed

These are supposedly the planets that will have maps upon launch (at least for the Galactic Assault mode):

Naboo
Kamino
Kashyyyk
Endor
Death Star II
Hoth
Mos Eisley
Yavin IV
Jakku
Takodana
Starkiller Base

3 prequel planets. 5 original trilogy planet/locations. 3 sequel trilogy planets. (Mind that you that for the Battlefront launch in 2015 there was only four planets upon launch: Tatooine, Endor, Hoth, and Sullust)

What do you think about this initial selection?

More planets, locations, maps will be coming with the free "seasons" of content after the initial launch - the first being a TLJ season with Finn, Phasma and the Krait planet.

----------------------
Star Wars: Battlefront II will be released November 17 and the beta comes out in two weeks.
