Things are going great. Apex [Legends] had a ton of competition last year. We weathered through that. This season did really well. We have another season coming out fairly soon. We’ve got stuff in development we’re not talking about. Some other Star Wars stuff too, which is exciting.
EA already has an impressive portfolio when it comes to developing Star Wars games, which means that the news shouldn’t surprise any of us. The company is most probably working on new Star Wars games or DLCs for titles that were already released. For instance, the company could bring expansions for games such as Star Wars Battlefront II (2017), Star Wars: Squadrons (2020), or Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (2019).

On the other hand, EA also has a strong reputation as a gaming giant, as it has been involved in creating many games that aren’t related to the iconic Star Wars franchise.
