EA Closing Visceral Games, Reworking Upcoming Star Wars Game

EA Closes Studio Working On UNCHARTED-Style STAR WARS Game

With Star Wars Battlefront, EA's other Star Wars game, filling the role of team-based online shooting game a la Battlefield or Call of Duty, what gameplay niche will this new game fill?

"Bringing new Star Wars games to life for every passionate fan out there is what drives us as creators". While specific details on the revisions have not yet been available, the company's phrasing of "a broader experience that allows for more variety and player agency" strongly suggests an open-world structure. Not to mention the Star Wars game the studio was working on is getting changed.

EA is closing down Visceral, the studio responsible for the critically acclaimed survival horror game Dead Space. The game was set to release sometime during the 2019 fiscal year (somewhere between April 2018 and March 2019), but EA would be "looking at a new timeframe" to release the game in. Triple-A games are now on-par with blockbuster movies, in that marketing teams spend massive amounts of money on advertising.

It has been unbelievable , so good for the players, not just England but all the players in such developmental tournaments. He was only allowed to attend the meet on condition that he would return to his club after the preliminary round.

Of course, because of this sudden change, it'll take an even longer time for EA to announce the launch of the game.

As of now, there is no word on former Uncharted director Amy Hennig's status, as she joined the Visceral Star Wars project back in 2014. That group includes EA Maxis, Bioware, DICE, and all other internal development studios. To put that in perspective, Mass Effect 2, which came out a few weeks before Dead Space 2 in January 2011, is rumoured to have cost around $40 million to make.

Many have wondered just how successful single player games are compared to their much larger multiplayer competitors and well, we may have an idea of how successful Visceral's games really were. Söderlund's vague description about "a Star Wars adventure of greater depth and breadth to explore", along with his acknowledgement of marketplace shifts, suggest anything from a Destiny-like, always-online adventure to some sort of Ewok-driven loot-box nightmare. The Star Wars game (codenamed Ragtag) was originally slated to release in late 2019/early 2020.
