Gary Whitta on State of EA’s Star Wars License, Both Cancelled Games

During his appearance this week on the Kinda Funny Games show, Rogue One standalone film writer Gary Whitta had some pretty strong words about how Electronic Arts has been handling their Star Wars license since they acquired the iconic license back in 2013. Whitta touches on the subject of the two Star Wars games in various stages of development (codename “Ragtag” by Visceral Games and codename “Orca” from the EA Vancouver team) that were eventually cancelled by EA as the company looks to move in a different direction with the franchise. The “Ragtag” title was put out to pasture with the intent of that project being replaced with a game from the developers at EA Vancouver under the “Orca” codename, but in the end both titles wound up having their unfortunate fates sealed 6 feet under.

Check out what Whitta had to say about this as more via the YouTube video embedded below and be sure to browse through the Related Articles section located at the bottom of this post to get caught up on the story of both of these cancelled Star Wars games if need be.
