EA: No Movie Tie-in Games Coming


By: Dominic Jones

If you were hoping for a Star Wars Episode VII video game, it seems you will be disappointed.  EA Chief Financial Officer addressed their plans for the Star Wars brand at the UBS Global Technology Conference and revealed that they don't intend to make tie-in games for any of the upcoming Star Wars films.  According to

"We've done movie games over the years and we wanted to make sure that we weren't doing a movie game, i.e., game based on the movie," Jorgensen says.  "The beauty of the Star Wars franchise is that it's so broad and so deep, you don't have to do a movie game, you can do a game that's very focused on the world that's been created around Star Wars."

While on one hand this is disappointing in that the Episode III video game was incredible.  But on the other hand it's exciting that they won't be tying themselves down to only make games based on the films and that they will instead be telling new stories.

What do you think, would you have liked to have seen an Episode VII video game?  Or are you glad to see EA telling new Star Wars stories through their games.  Let us know in the comments or on Facebook.
