Considering it was just announced, either they've been working on something quietly for a while or they're about to make mistake #1 and start rushing half done. glitchy, no thought or substance games to market as quickly as possible.

Does this mean we've got an approximate release date for the next big Star Wars game?

Woo!


More seriousness though, it does seem unpleasant that they would outright state that. Does this mean they are not willing to consider publishing any indie Star Wars games whatsoever, or just that their own studios aren't working on any?

Considering that 2013 is almost half over, that isn't much of a wait for games we don't know about yet.

This. If EA said "not before 2015" I would be a bit calmer but 2014? That's nowhere near enough to make quality AAA games unless they already worked on them for at least a year/two.

Does it really matter? EA has not had many successful franchises and many of their titles are subpar(Medal of Honor anyone?). It frightens me the Disney has the entire Star Wars film franchise and the games(formerly Lucasarts).

Surprisingly, if you play games like NCAA Football, FIFA, Madden and NHL Hockey, you will also understand that EA doesn't do that bad.

Understandable that there won't be anything until after 2014.....but completely tossing 1313 was the worst part. Hopefully Darth Micky can find someone to take control of that project.

Indeed I suspect 1313 will go through the same juggling act of licensing and development changes that killed battlefront 3 for so long.

And 1313 was much better than BF3 too haha. Though we'll get that before 1313 seeing that it really was 99% done, aside from textures.
