It looks like, while we may all be upset about the ending of Disney Infinity (here), there’s good news in the other Star Wars gaming front…

Electronic Arts’ CFO Blake Jorgensen has announced that Star Wars Battlefront games are to become an annual release: “Next year we’ll see Star Wars Battlefront back with bigger and better worlds, because we now have the new movies to work off [and] not just the historical movies that we used before.”

This is great news as it looks like the next game may cover more than just the original trilogy, with a million planets, not to mention the new movies, prequels and animated shows, to explore. Battlefront may be set to get much bigger.

Jorgensen also confirmed that a second Star Wars game, headed by Amy Hennig and Todd Stashwick, is coming in 2018. If rumours are to be believed, this new game will harken back to the tragically cancelled 1313.

All this on top of the news that Respawn, the guys behind titanfall, are working on a Star Wars third-person shooter too.

Get strapped in Star Wars fans, there’s some serious gaming ahead…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
