With EA Games losing exclusive rights to Star Wars, other studios are now open to develop titles set in a galaxy far far away. Assassin’s Creed studio Ubisoft is said to be working on their own SW title, and it looks like the game may have found a writer.

Far Cry Writer Allegedly Penning Ubisoft’s Star Wars Game

During an appearance at Fan Expo Canada (via Bespin Bulletin), The Mandalorian star Giancarlo Esposito had somewhat confirmed that Far Cry writer Navid Khavari has been tapped to write Ubisoft’s next Star Wars game. Esposito explains:

Oh my goodness. Are you kidding me? It would be a wonderful thing. I’m hearing that Navid out of Montreal, the writer of Far Cry, is now moving on to Star Wars and doing something for a Swedish company which I know very little about it, but I’m about to call him.”

We don’t have any specific details about Ubisoft’s Star Wars game, but it’s said to be an open-world adventure. With that in mind, I have a feeling we could be allowed to pick from different classes and traverse the galaxy the way we see fit–kind of like the freedom players got with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Then again, I am just guessing at this point. I guess with Star Wars Jedi, we already have a title for a soulslike, narrative platformer, so Ubisoft and other companies that want to have a stab at the Star Wars IP should make sure they’re bringing something different to the table.

Hopefully we get an official announcement soon.

No release date has been set for Ubisoft’s Star Wars game.
