EA’s Star Wars Games will be Coming to All Major Platforms, ‘Claims EA’

The news broke yesterday that EA and Disney agreed to a multi-year deal to develop Star Wars games. With EA’s current vendetta against Nintendo, many fans assumed Star Wars games would be skipping the Wii U. However, it seems like EA will be putting some form of Star Wars on “all major platforms” 

The Frostbite 3 engine will not be coming to the Wii U due to EA’s laziness and bitterness toward Nintendo. But EA has stated today that Star Wars games will be coming to all major platforms including the PC, mobile devices, and consoles.

I’m still skeptical about any Star Wars games coming to the Wii U or 3DS. EA might not consider the Wii U or 3DS a “major platform,” just like they don’t consider the Wii U “next-gen”.

    Everything MrSilver said.
    Disney is likely forcing them to put these games on Wii U. But EA will no doubt purposefully gimp them for Nintendo platforms. I will consider buying Star Wars games again when EA loses the license.

    You do realize that EA payed for the exclusivity liscence for Star Wars? This stuff was about money!

  • MrSilver

    Well firstly EA has been acting like the Wii U doesn't even exist, so everything but Nintendo systems could be their version of "All Major Platforms." Secondly chances are if EA does release these games on Nintendo platforms. They will most likely be cheap, shoddy, lazily done ports that will be significantly inferior to other versions of the games. Lastly I don't care if it comes to the Wii U, EA isn't getting my money.

    EA is going to try and justify skipping the Wii U anyway they can. However, I just realized something. Nintendo started building a relationship with Disney over the last couple of years. Do you think Disney might force EA to put the games on Wii U and 3DS?

    • Aiddon

      maybe, they're the more powerful entity in the relationship.

  • Aiddon

    they might be contractually obligated to release games on the Wii U as the LAST company you want to argue with is Disney. Still, we'll wait and see

  • Ray01

    Watch, I bet They'll announce it for everything else but Wii U. It wouldn't surprise me.
    Disney are freaking Idiots for letting EA take control of their Star Wars games. Do they not know what kind of reputation EA has?

  • NS3210

    I hate that they now have Star Wars, can it get any worse? Hopefully EA will have a change of heart after E3, but we shall see. BTW Francis I just sent you an email.
