Electronic Arts announced that it is working with Respawn Entertainment on a new game set in the Star Wars universe. No details about the game were revealed, aside from the fact that it will be a “third-person action adventure game.” Respawn is a relatively new studio made up of some of the key minds from Infinity Ward, including founders Jason West and Vince Zampella, best known for working on Call of Duty.

“Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with Vince Zampella and his group,” says Patrick Söderlund, VP of EA Studios. “Their obsession with making games that feel amazing has helped make Titanfall one of the most successful new game launches of this generation. And now, with a new team led by Stig Asmussen, we get to see what they can do when you combine that great attention to gameplay with the power of Star Wars.”

“Developing a game within the ever-expanding Star Wars universe opens up so many paths for us to go down, and an unparalleled playground to design within,” adds Asmussen, who previously worked on the God of War series before joining Respawn in 2014. “We have already planted the seeds by assembling a small, but incredibly talented team, ready for the amazing journey that lies ahead.”

“[We] promise to pay respect to the Star Wars legacy at all times, a fact that will be constantly reinforced and honored as a central game design tenet,” Asmussen said. “Fans should expect the exemplary level of quality first established at Respawn with Titanfall, a game that epitomizes our studio’s dedication to slick, larger-than-life action and fun, groundbreaking mechanics. Moving forward, we couldn’t ask for a better universe in which to continue this journey, and although I would love to share all of the exciting places we are going…”

Respawn’s journey to a galaxy far, far away, is part of publisher Electronic Arts’ deal with Disney to produce games based on the Star Wars license. Respawn’s new game isn’t the only mystery Star Wars project in the works. Respawn joins Visceral Games, DICE, Capital Games, BioWare and Motive as one of the teams developing Star Wars games for EA. In a post on EA‘s website, Patrick Söderlund, executive vice president of EA Studios, said the publisher will be sharing more details on Visceral and Motive‘s games soon.
