Those who were hoping that we might get Amy Hennig and Visceral’s Star Wars game any time soon might want to prepare themselves for a bit of disappointing news: the game is still “a few years” away, according to EA’s CFO Blake Jorgensen.
During EA’s Q3 2016 earnings call, the CFO noted that the company was investing in some action-based games. While speaking about these games, he spilled the beans on the Star Wars game’s release date.
“We are down to less than 15 major SKUs,” said Jorgensen. “And that feels like a good size of the business and we are obviously announcing that we are investing in some action-based SKUs by bringing people like Jade Raymond and Amy Hennig into our organization to help build those. And those are obviously a few years out in our SKU plan.”
Before this mention by Jorgensen, we had no idea when to expect the Visceral Star Wars game. Now, at least we have a general time frame for when to start beginning to expect it. Unfortunately, it’s a little later than we had hoped (we were thinking Fall 2017, at the latest), but by the sounds of it, we’re heading into 2018 or 2019 territory.
