Today EA and Disney have officially announced a multi-year partnership to bring Star Wars games to all major platforms in the near future.  As part of the deal, Disney will retain the rights to develop and publish games on mobile, tablet, social, and online platforms.

John Pleasants, Co-President of Disney Interactive, had the following to say about the partnership:  “This agreement demonstrates our commitment to creating quality game experiences that drive the popularity of the Star Wars franchise for years to come.  Collaborating with one of the world’s premier game developers will allow us to bring an amazing portfolio of new Star Wars titles to our fans around the world.”

EA Labels President Frank Gibeau also added his thoughts about the new deal;  “Every developer dreams of creating games for the Star Wars universe.  Three of our top studios will fulfill that dream, crafting epic adventures for Star Wars fans. DICE and Visceral will produce new games, joining the BioWare team which continues to develop for the Star Wars franchise. The new experiences we create may borrow from films, but the games will be entirely original with all new stories and gameplay.”

James is a complete gaming geek that moonlights as a guitar player for local Miami rock band phoenix/NEBULIN. When he's not rocking out onstage he can be found on PSN and Xbox Live as Anxiety83. You can also follow James on Twitter @anxiety83
