If it sells well, they'll probably start working on expansions and a sequel. Sequel can easily take three years to make.

CD Projekt RED goes for low profile/regional IPs. Lucas would want way more money than CD Projekt RED is willing to pay. Also bare in mind that Star Wars has little (and diminishing) appeal outside of the West.
You are right I should have thought about it more deeply before posting.

I want a remake of the X-Wing and TIE Fighter series. I don't care who grabs the licenses next, if they give me such thing and it's well done.
Hopefully not with the uber shitty and crappy fighter controls like on the Battlefield or worst, SWTOR...

At least there's a part of the world out there that realized how crappy the last two Star Wars (Force Awakens, Last Jedi) movies are.

Personally, I'm not sure what movie is worse, the first three (Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith) or the last two (Force Awakens, Last Jedi) that just recently came out. I am so glad that I haven't spent any money on these movies (aside from catching Phantom Menace the day it released and then regretting it about 30 minutes into the movie).

Well, Force Awakens is not terrible. It's just that it's been done before. It's basically the original Star Wars movie remade.

Have you actually played Kotor? Tie Fighter?
I can understand if the SW universe does nothing for you, but those were really, really good games.

People are just naming whatever successful studio without a tarnished rep at this point, don't know whether this is a good thing or bad thing as it shows everyone is fed up with EA to the point where they are willing to put up with anyone else. OTOH, studios being named revealing people's ignorance.

I think they need to diversify developers. Why would giving a single publisher the rights to exclusive development of Star Wars IP? Makes no sense.

Mulling over it for a bit, I believe this is the same realization that Disney has reached. They're probably just scrambling to fix things now that EA has botched things for two movies worth of tie-ins, and with the third one on the way, they don't want a repeat and are restrategizing. EA is probably safe with the SW rights barring that they don't do or say anything monumentally stupid, just going to lose the exclusivity portion of whatever agreement they made. Because of the position EA has put them in, Disney is probably opting for the shotgun approach so they'll have as many games as possible with next movie. If I'm right and I hope I am not this means nothing good for SW as whatever wasn't originally planned is going to be rushed out the door.

Eh....to each their own, but I thought the movie was dull, the acting was sub-par and you could tell that some folks were just there to collect a check.

I enjoyed a handful of Star Wars games. Even for how bad the Phantom Menace game was, it was certainly more entertaining than the actual movie.

X-Wing
Tie Fighter
Jedi Outcast
Jedi Academy
KOTOR I
KOTOR II
Dark Forces
Dark Forces II

Those were all decent games, regardless of them being tied to Star Wars. I'm sure I'm missing a couple. While not a great game, but I remember playing the crap out of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back on the Atari 2600 when I was little.

I guess we wait and see what becomes of this possible talk of EA getting dropped.

Feel the same also, which puzzles me since Disney seems to prefer British actors as if they are better but they aren't and are akin to swiss-army knives which feeds into my theory that Disney is now a British corporation now masquerading as an American one.

Abandons game > developer doesnt care. shit product.
keeps game current and interesting to play > milks it.

Devs cant win
Thats why they create their own studios ;)

keeps game current and interesting to play? Using that phrase loosely don't you think? More like withholding content that should have been included with the base game in the first place so they can charge for more later. Seems like nowadays anything that remotely resembles what you described just gets repackaged as a whole new game instead of proper dlc or an expansion.
Nah, that's too easy. Many games today are far more expansive than games in the past. Both in content and options. I could give you a long list of examples for games that are continuously maintained and still relevant - and get milked as well ;)

Oh god, No! I want to use an actual joystick for a possible remake and get all the controls and gameplay experience just like the X-Wing vs TIE Fighter game. To be honest, it would be enough for me if they just updated the engine and the graphic resources to take advantage of current hardware. I don't want any change to how I have to pilot the fighters.

As much as I would like that, you know they would screw it all up to high heaven.

All 4 games (x wing, tie fighter, XvT, and alliance) are available on GoG. I can just play those instead. Same with the new battlefront...I already have the old battlefront 2, and it has multiplayer again. Why buy the new stuff?

You forgot the Rogue Squadron series, which imo are the best Star Wars flight simulators to date.

Rogue Squadron? Doesn't hold a candle to TIE Fighter, imho.
I mean, there was this mission where you had to protect a delivery of TIE Defenders and you did so, hoping you'll get to fly these armored beasts in later missions. And you did, eventually, but first you had to chase down the admiral that defected taking with him all the Defenders you just escorted. You had to fight against said defenders with less capable ships before you got to fly them.
Then there was the sense of urgency (sometimes borderline desperation) trying to fulfill a bonus objective while also keeping tabs on your primaries and secondaries.
Rogue Squadron was also good, but it felt a little childish in comparison.

As much as I would like that, you know they would screw it all up to high heaven.

All 4 games (x wing, tie fighter, XvT, and alliance) are available on GoG. I can just play those instead. Same with the new battlefront...I already have the old battlefront 2, and it has multiplayer again. Why buy the new stuff?
I have the Steam versions of those games (had to get them, once I found out the original ones didn't work really well on Windows 10, at least on my computer). But still... as long as they don't screw it up, I'd love a remake.
