The firms have begun their “Bring Home the Bounty” campaign, which will see “new Star Wars toys, collectibles, books, clothes, and more” released on a weekly basis from now until the end of December, according to an article on the official Star Wars website.
As part of a publishing effort that will disclose new Star Wars goods every Tuesday for the rest of the year, Disney and Lucasfilm have teased a Star Wars video game announcement for December.
Disney has given fans a glimpse into what they might expect from potential announcements across the campaign through an interactive poster on its site. Each week on the poster details different characters and memorabilia from across the franchise. However, on December 14, Disney has instead opted to lead with the image of a gamepad, hinting that there may be a new Star Wars game announcement on its way.
While it’s unclear at this point whether the announcement will contain information about an already existing game or something completely new, there are currently a number of different developers working on games set in a galaxy far, far away. With EA’s exclusivity deal over Star Wars games nearing its end, it was announced earlier this year that Ubisoft is working on its own open-world Star Wars entry.
In an interview with IGN earlier this year, SVP of Walt Disney Games Sean Shoptaw explained that he and his team had met with Ubisoft Massive after Disney’s acquisition of Fox, which included an already in-development Avatar video game project.
Although EA’s exclusivity deal over the Star Wars franchise is set to run out, that by no means suggests that the publisher is stepping away from the universe. Earlier this year, EA CEO Andrew Wilson made very clear that Star Wars had been hugely profitable for the company, and confirmed it would continue working on games set in the universe
