The Star Wars saga has lots of video games, in which the creative freedom of their studios has prevailed for decades. We’ve seen great action adventure titles, LEGO games, single player shooters, MMO’s, virtual reality games, and even strategy titles.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was recently released, one of the three games that EA and Respawn are preparing to say goodbye to the galactic franchise. And the other two?
One is known to be a first-person shooter, rumored to be inspired by Star Wars Dark Forces. For now a multiplayer-oriented title like Battlefront is ruled out.
