As a follow-up to their earlier story about the decision by Electronic Arts to cancel the development/release of the open-world Star Wars game being helmed by the team at EA Vancouver, Kotaku has since received the following statement directly from an EA representative regarding this report:
There’s been speculation overnight about one of our Star Wars projects. As a natural part of the creative process, the great work by our team in Vancouver continues and will evolve into future Star Wars content and games. We’re fully committed to making more Star Wars games, we’re very excited about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order from Respawn, and we’ll share more about our new projects when the time is right.
We can see from EA’s provided statement that the cancellation of this open-world title will not have a negative impact on the development of Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order game.
