Analog Assault Episode 13: New Star Wars Trilogy, Respawn Buyout, Xbox Changing Gears
Recorded on Thursday, November 9, 2017.
This week, we’re diving head-first into Star Wars and, by proxy, EA Games.
We have received confirmation that there will be a new Star Wars trilogy (duh) after Episode 9. Director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson, will be responsible for carrying the torch.
It appears we’ve gotten a clue as to Thrawn surviving his appearances in Star Wars Rebels, the animated series.
EA has recently purchased Respawn studios, known for the Titanfall series. We discuss what this means for Star Wars fans, and how it is connected to the recent closure of Visceral.
It’s being reported that Xbox now wants to focus their attention on acquiring and developing first-party titles. Is it too little, too late?
