The Star Wars strategy from the authors of XCOM and Civilization is alive – even after layoffs at EA

Good news came from BitReactor studio, which is developing an unannounced Star Wars strategy game on behalf of Electronic Arts: the recent restructuring has not affected the department, the game continues to be in development.

“The last week has been a tough one for the industry, and our close relationship with the Respawn teams has made it even tougher. For those who were interested: we are working hard, our game was not affected by this news in any way,” the studio’s official account said.

The strategy, which is not properly presented, is created by veterans of the development series XCOM and Civilization, and the process is led by Greg Ferch, the former art director of Firaxis. The project has been known since 2022, but the authors have not shown gameplay or even a cinematic trailer. The strategy’s release date also remains unclear.

Let us recall that the recent restructuring and change of strategy of Electronic Arts implied the abandonment of licensed work in favor of its own franchises: the Respawn studio even refused to develop a shooter based on The Mandalorian.
