Disney reportedly wants a new Star Wars game to come out every six months

The House of Mouse reportedly wants to stagger releases of a big Star Wars game with a second smaller one every year.


Star Wars is one of the few franchises that can proudly claim that it's had a lot of hits, as far as video game adaptations go.

Star Wars: Hunters is the oft-delayed free-to-play mobile game by Zynga.

You don't need to look further than our list of the best Star Wars games to know that this is an IP that has done its source material right, more often than not. Now, it appears that Disney wants to do more with Star Wars.

According to an Insider Gaming report, Disney has asked Lucasfilm to find a way to release at least one Star Wars video game every six months. Specifically, staggering the "AAA" titles with smaller releases.

It will be a long while before we see Star Wars: Eclipse come out.

Here's a list of all the confirmed Star Wars games in development at the moment:

Outside of Zynga's Star Wars: Hunters and possibly also Respawn Entertainment's Untitled Strategy Game, the other six qualify as "AAA" titles. This would suggest that the next set of Star Wars games to be announced will be considered smaller projects. Then again, the report didn't indicate that Disney and Lucasfilm are sticking to just two titles a year. If we're lucky, we'll get one every quarter, but that would be wishful thinking.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is easily the most highly anticipated Star Wars games in years.

Ultimately, this is the result of Electronic Arts losing its exclusive license on any and all Star Wars video games. Now that the Star Wars franchise is fair game, we're curious to see what other studios will do with it.

So far, we haven't seen anyone else outside of EA and Warner Bros (the latter released Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga earlier this year) come out with their take on the space fantasy saga. The only in-development title that's close to coming out is Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, which rumors claim is going to hit store shelves in March. The rest are either on an indefinite hold (Knights of the Old Republic Remake), pushed back to 2027 (Star Wars: Eclipse), or very early in their development.
