There is no star wars video game IP because dark forces, jedi knight, outcast and academy all never happened anymore and there’s no more xwing or tie fighter, because no one wants to play space games anymore (i assume, i always find this weird because star wars + no gravity made them an excellent introduction to flight-based games, and there are still plenty of space games). That arcadey pish in battlefront does not count as a substitute.
From the stuff I’ve read in interviews with guys who were at visceral, it tooks weeks or months to get responses on stuff that normally would be approved in hours or days, because everything they do needed to be run by Disney. There was also stuff about EA wanted a big single-player cinematic action game to challenge Uncharted, but they don’t have a team that’s done that before, which is why i figure that might be what the respawn guys end up doing as TF2s campaign was good. I doubt EA want a slick multiplayer star wars experience from them that’d compete with battlefront. which sucks, because Titanfall 2 is a more polished game than i can remember EA producing. Ever.
I think we’re lacking a sci-fi, space-centric IP who’s creators want their fans to enjoy it rather than trying to breed and milk a larger cash cow.
I feel like whatever we get will be more rebel assault than dark forces or tie fighter. I’d play a remake of rebellion/supremacy (a strategy game encompassing everything after episode IV), or an updated Empire at War, but i’ll not hold my breath.
