A new LEGO Star Wars game just got outed by General Grievous

A new LEGO Star Wars game just got outed by General Grievous

"It's kind of better to wait for the right moment", he said of dropping both the trailer and name at Star Wars Celebration this weekend in Chicago to fans' delight.

So when push came to shove, and EA really wanted to get the next Star Wars game right, they gave Respawn Entertainment, the team that emerged out of the husk of Infinity Ward after Modern Warfare 2, the first crack at taking on the job. The trailer was dark, gritty, and established a pretty compelling premise about a Jedi trying to bring as little attention to him as possible.

According to Eurogamer, the new LEGO Star Wars title could possibly follow the events of the entire saga, from Episode I-IX.

Kennedy spoke with EW, where she confirmed Bob Iger's recent comments that Star Wars movie will take a hiatus following Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, "We're going to take a hiatus for a couple of years". Hennig has been asked for her thoughts on this and has also shared some more details on what Ragtag was going to be. She adds, "We're not just looking at what the next three movies might be, or talking about this in terms of a trilogy. We're looking at: What is the next decade of storytelling?"

Google teases May 7 announcement of Pixel 3a and 3a XL
The teaser links to a preview ad for the Pixel 3 lineup and Avengers: Endgame , a movie that won't be released until April 26. Given the rash of recent rumors , most folks believe that "something big" is the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL .

Kennedy would go on to confirm that Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson and Game of Thrones writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will be central to this process, "As they finish Game of Thrones, they're going to segue into Star Wars". Admitting her view on why EA changed its stance on single-player only games is speculation, she said "I don't know why the change of heart happened, because that was very clearly not an acceptable plan when we were working on Ragtag!"

So what does the next phase of Star Wars look like? Then Rian Johnson arrived and wrote The Last Jedi entirely.

"We needed to cut away to the villains, for one thing, which was something I never allowed us to do on Uncharted". The industry's changing all the time, she said, "and I'm glad for Respawn's sake, because I'm excited about their game, and I've heard great things about it". The publisher still seems to be focused on the "live service" model, so Jedi Fallen Order could end up being the exception rather than the rule. It's still Star Wars, and holding on to the DNA of what George Lucas created is still very important to us.
