Lucasfilm Games has been making announcements over the past two days many video gamers have been wanting for a very long time. Yesterday, came the announcement of a new INDIANA JONES game from Bethesda and today it is Star Wars' turn.

According to Wired, a new open-world STAR WARS game is coming from Ubisoft. 

Wired reports:

"The Star Wars galaxy is an amazing source of motivation for our teams to innovate and push the boundaries of our medium," said Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot. "Building new worlds, characters and stories that will become lasting parts of the Star Wars lore is an incredible opportunity for us, and we are excited to have our Ubisoft Massive studio working closely with Lucasfilm Games to create an original Star Wars adventure that is different from anything that has been done before."

EA has held exclusive rights to Star Wars video games for years now, but that exclusivity has run out.

“EA has been and will continue to be a very strategic and important partner for us now and going forward,” Sean Shoptaw, senior vice president of Global Games and Interactive Experiences at Disney, told WIRED. “But we did feel like there's room for others.”

"This new non-exclusive arrangement for Star Wars games—as well as the rest of Lucasfilm’s library of franchises—leaves open the door for developers to pitch their own ideas for stories to Lucasfilm Games. “We get no shortage of folks knocking on our door, wanting to play with our toys,” Douglas Reilly, VP of Lucasfilm Games, told WIRED.
