DIsney and EA

Today Disney and EA announced a multi-year exclusive licensing agreement to develop and publish new games based on the Star Wars franchise.

According to the press release, “EA will develop and publish new Star Wars titles for a core gaming audience, spanning all interactive platforms and the most popular game genres.” Meanwhile, Disney will “develop new titles within the mobile, social, tablet and online game categories.”

“This agreement demonstrates our commitment to creating quality game experiences that drive the popularity of the Star Wars franchise for years to come,” said John Pleasants, Co-President of Disney Interactive. “Collaborating with one of the world’s premier game developers will allow us to bring an amazing portfolio of new Star Wars titles to our fans around the world.”

Does this sound like a good idea to you guys? I’m curious how EA’s micro-transactions will play out in future Star Wars games. Oh you want a lightsaber? Please donate $5 to the Freedom of Wookie Slaves Coalition.
