The number of new Star Wars video games under development has exploded since publisher Electronic Arts’ exclusive access to the Lucasfilm series has taken its toll. There are at least eight major Star Wars games on the way, and more are likely to be announced in the coming months and years.

These video game projects join a wide range of new movies, TV shows, books and comics taking place in George Lucas ‘galaxy far, far away, while Lucasfilm Games is working to rebuild Star Wars’ presence in games. Many of these games are years away, as evidenced by the number of Star Wars logos and nameless projects you will see below.

In addition to recent releases such as Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed to Nintendo Switch, and continued development of games as MMO Star Wars: The Old Republichere all Star Wars games are under development (as far as we know).

Respawn Entertainment also has an unnamed, brand new Star Wars first-person shooter on the way.

Respawns Star Wars shooter does not have a release date or announced platforms, but it does appear to be the publisher’s Electronic Arts replacement for the modern Battlefront franchise developed by DICE.
