An announcement that is sending shock waves around the galaxy, Ubisoft announced yesterday that Massive Entertainment – the Swedish studio behind The Division – will be making an open-world game in the Star Wars universe. This news comes off the heels of Disney rebranding their gaming division to LucasFilm Games. The game will use the same game engine as The Division. Unfortunately we don’t have word on a release window yet.
The significance of this announcement is that this will be the first game in the Star Wars universe that is not being made under the EA umbrella of studios in eight years. They did clarify that the relationship between the two has not gone sour – in fact, they claim it is stronger than ever. It sounds like they are just planning on expanding their gaming division even more.
