Respawn, if you recall, was founded by Jason West and Vince Zampella, who created and developed the Call of duty franchise up until 2010. They went on to make Titanfall for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.

Here's the post from EA:

By Patrick Söderlund, Executive Vice President of EA Studios.

At EA right now, we have multiple studios building a variety of great Star Wars games spanning different genres. We are all united by our teams’ passion for Star Wars™ stories, characters, and adventures.

Today, I’m thrilled to be able to announce that EA and the talented team at Respawn Entertainment have expanded our relationship to include the development of an all-new 3rd person action adventure game set in the Star Wars universe. They join our other great studios – Visceral Games, DICE, Capital Games, BioWare, Motive and more – who are currently working on Star Wars projects. If you’re interested in joining us on this adventure, you can visit our Careers page – we have openings at Visceral and Motive and will be sharing more on these experiences soon.

Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with Vince Zampella and his group. Their obsession with making games that feel amazing has helped make Titanfall one of the most successful new game launches of this generation. And now, with a new team led by Stig Asmussen, we get to see what they can do when you combine that great attention to gameplay with the power of Star Wars.

There’s never been a better time to be a Star Wars fan. The passion we’re seeing for Star Wars from gamers – whether they’ve been along for the ride since Star Wars™: Episode IV: A New Hope™, or were introduced to the magic of Star Wars with Star Wars™: The Force Awakens™ – is fueling our development teams and our partners to create unique interactive extensions of this deep, meaningful universe. As a game maker, nothing is more exciting.

Thank you and May the Fourth be with you,

Patrick

    Im not saying this is it, but do you think we will ever get an open world SW game?
  • I dont know about open world...but I'd likw to see a KOTOR/KOTNR (new republic) that runs like uncharted. Or a bounty hunter remake or Han solo game

    I'm pumped. Titanfall was a great game and I like how Respawn handled it. Very much looking forward to seeing more about this and Titanfall 2.

    Extremely excited for this. Modern Warfare 1 & 2 are among the best CoD's (obviously fan favorites for sure) and I loved Titanfall so this is awesome news. I have a lot of faith in their talent.
    Valid Token Confirmed.

    I am hoping for a multiple campaign/mission game like as said above "Uncharted". I am a PC player. A campaign/mission game with 1st person shooter hero and rebel/trooper based would "balance" the universe with Battlefront 3.
