In news that single-handedly defines the phrase “bittersweet,” EA has announced exclusive rights to games in the Star Wars franchise. They’ve also announced that Battlefield creators and arguable combat geniuses, DICE, would be working on new games in the franchise. Visceral will also be joining in the festivities. They’re both mentioned as “joining Bioware, which continues to develop for the Star Wars franchise.” Hopefully this means that Bioware is hard at work at something new besides more Old Republic content. A guy can hope, can’t he?
