Electronic Arts has announced that it will produce three new Star Wars games through Respawn Entertainment, even after the exclusivity deal ends.
The first title will be a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which will also be directed by Stig Asmussen, also responsible for the previous game.
Respawn is also working on a Star Wars first-person shooter, which will be directed by Peter Hirschmann, who has experience with the genre and the franchise, including serving as vice president of development at LucasArts in the past.
Finally, EA will produce a Star Wars strategy game, developed by the Bit Reactor studio with production by Respawn. Bit Reactor is a newly announced studio formed by veterans of XCOM's Firaxis Games studio.

“We are excited to continue working with Respawn's extremely talented developers,” said Douglas Reilly, VP of Games at Lucasfilm. “They have demonstrated excellence in telling epic Star Wars stories along with the best gameplay across different genres and we look forward to bringing more incredible experiences to the galaxy far, far away.”
EA signed an exclusive deal with Disney in 2013, telling investors the partnership would last at least a decade. The exclusivity ended last year when Ubisoft announced the development of its own Star Wars open world game, followed by Zynga and Quantic Dream, which also have projects involving the franchise.
But the partnership between EA and Star Wars is still alive and will have at least three more chapters.
