The Star Wars news just keeps coming. Respawn Entertainment, the developer of Titanfall and the forthcoming Titanfall 2, has announced that the studio also has a Star Wars game in the works.

In a post on Respawn’s blog, game director Stig Asmussen said, “We’ve all heard this story before.  At 5 years old you see something beyond comprehension, an extraordinary fantasy that at first doesn’t seem real, but in time becomes inspirational law.  The heroes, the villains, the visions, the sounds, the music, imprinted forever.  Of course I am describing Star Wars, the most influential franchise in modern history, and we at Respawn Entertainment are honored to have the chance to contribute to that legacy.”

The post says the game will be a third-person action adventure game set in the Star Wars universe, but no other details or an expected release date were revealed.

Asmussen, who was also a game director on the God of War games, went on to say, “We promise to pay respect to the Star Wars legacy at all times, a fact that will be constantly reinforced and honored as a central game design tenet.  Fans should expect the exemplary level of quality first established at Respawn with Titanfall, a game that epitomizes our studio’s dedication to slick, larger-than-life action and fun, groundbreaking mechanics.  Moving forward, we couldn’t ask for a better universe in which to continue this journey.”

Asmussen added that there is currently a small team working on the project and that they’re looking to hire more.
