EA Vancouver’s Open-World Star Wars Game Is No Longer Coming Out
The game was originally being made by the now-defunct Visceral Games before that studio was closed and, according to Kotaku, EA Vancouver had “rebooted” its development and the studio’s game (now codenamed “Orca”) was still in “early development” before it was cancelled.
“When EA’s top decision-makers looked at their road map for the next few years, they decided that they needed something earlier than the planned release date for Orca, according to two people familiar with what happened,” Kotaku’s Jason Schreier reported. “So they cancelled Orca in favor of a smaller-scale Star Wars project that’s now aimed for much sooner—likely, late 2020, which also happens to be around the time that I’ve heard next-gen consoles will launch.”
His report also mentioned that EA didn’t lay off any employees after this new project’s development started.
