EA Responds To The Reports That Another 'Star Wars' Game Has Been Cancelled

By: Dominic Jones

Last night it was reported that Electronic Arts (EA) had cancelled another Star Wars video game they had been working on, specifically an open-world game that their Vancouver studio had been working on.  In a statement to Entertainment Weekly an EA spokesperson downplayed the recent turn of events, calling it "a natural part of the creative process" and that the Vancouver team would continue work that, "will evolve into future Star Wars content and games."

The full statement reads,
"There’s been speculation overnight about one of our Star Wars projects. As a natural part of the creative process, the great work by our team in Vancouver continues and will evolve into future Star Wars content and games. We’re fully committed to making more Star Wars games, we’re very excited about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order from Respawn, and we’ll share more about our new projects when the time is right."

The cancelled or the soon to be "evolved" into something else game was reportedly an open world game where the player is a bounty hunter.  The game was code-named "Orca" and is apparently being replaced by a smaller game, which will be out sooner (possibly 2020).  As the statement points out, this evolution doesn't appear to impact Jedi: Fallen Order which will be released later this year.
