EA teases 2022 Star Wars games reveal

US publishing giant Electronic Arts has said that it won't be showing any new Star Wars projects at its upcoming EA Play Live event.

In a post from the official EA Star Wars Twitter account, the firm said that while it won't be revealing anything Star Wars-related at the July 22nd event, it will be revealing something Star Wars related in 2022.

"We won’t be showing any new Star Wars games at EA Play Live on July 22nd…but all of us look forward to celebrating with you next year when we share our vision for the Galaxy far, far away," the firm wrote.

At the start of 2021, EA CEO Andrew Wilson said that the company was committed to the Star Wars IP even as it lost its status as the only triple-A publisher able to work on games based on the franchise for PC and console. Having released two Star Wars Battlefront games, Jedi: Fallen Order and Squadrons, it was revealed that Ubisoft's Massive studio was working on a brand new open-world game set in a galaxy far, far away.

EA landed the exclusive rights for PC and console Star Wars game back in 2013. As well as the titles it has released, the firm was also working on a variety of cancelled games such as Visceral's Ragtag, Orca from EA Vancouver and Criterion's Viking.

Jedi: Fallen Order, from Titanfall and Apex Legends developer Respawn, was the best-selling Star Wars game on PC when it debuted back in 2018.
