Reilly told starwars.com, "We're really proud of the games we have created with EA".
Lucasfilm Games show no sign of slowing down on the announcement front. We will continue working with them and our relationship has never been stronger. An open-world Star Wars game, no longer under the thumb of EA.
Hot on the heels of the announcement that Lucasfilm Games will be the "official identity for all gaming titles from Lucasfilm" going forward - and that Indiana Jones Bethesda game teaser - the company has now revealed it's partnering with Ubisoft to create a Star Wars open-world game. The Division developer, Ubisoft Massive will develop the new game. However, the first title announced by the company wasn't set in a galaxy far far away. "These new collaborations will allow the Lucasfilm Games team to pursue fresh and exciting directions in the storytelling of Star Wars and Indiana Jones in imaginative and different ways than those explored by our films".
Though no additional developers or Star Wars games have been revealed at this time (apart from EA still making Star Wars games too), this announcement from Lucasfilm Games makes it pretty clear that the Star Wars video game universe is going to be expanding, and this is just the start. These are still early days though, and Massive is now on a recruitment drive to get the right staff ready for the project that will be helmed by creative director Julian Gerighty, director of The Division 2 and The Crew.

In August, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar became the first Cabinet member to visit Taiwan since 2014. China, which opposes Taiwan having its own foreign relations, sharply criticises all such interaction.
"Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment are renowned for their expertise in developing immersive worlds, and in pushing the boundaries of technology with their proprietary engine, Snowdrop". Our talented teams have created some of the most successful games in the history of the Star Wars franchise, including Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Star Wars: Battlefront, Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, and Star Wars: Squadrons.
Numerous titles EA listed in its statement were featured in a sizzle reel announcing the new rebranding of Star Wars Games as Lucasfilm Games.
As for EA's EAxclusivity deal? It's possible that Lucasfilm Games are working with Ubisoft now so they can hit the ground running once the deal ends in 2023.
