Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

During Electronic Arts' quarterly financial conference call, chief executive officer Andrew Wilson was asked about the company's plans for the Star Wars franchise. 

Wilson boasted the "incredible" partnership with Disney and Lucas, he brought up the Star Wars Jedi franchise specifically, mentioning that he would love to see the series continue over time following the success of Jedi: Survivor

Yeah, we don't have anything to announce today, but, you know, we have an incredible partnership with Disney and Lucas.

We've had incredible success in that partnership across the Battlefront and the Star Wars Jedi franchises and absolutely with Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. Our teams are always thinking about what are new experiences that we might be able to create.

Certainly, I would love to see more in the in the Jedi franchise over time. It's just an extraordinary game that tells an extraordinary story.

We may be a little biased, but our sense based on the feedback we're getting from our community and the quality of the product, is that it's one of the great beats in the Star Wars Galaxy this year, and will likely continue to be a very meaningful part of that Galaxy for many years to come

As we bring it to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, we think they'll be another little bump there for the franchise and so, nothing to announce today other than we have an incredible relationship with Disney.

We've had incredible success so far in that partnership, and to the extent that we can find new opportunities to execute against new experiences, including live Services, as part of that partnership, we will explore them.

Wilson was also whether he sees any chance for further acquisitions or if he feels good about where the company is after the acquisitions of Codemasters, Glu Mobile, and Playdemic. 

He explained that while the company is always looking for opportunities, they're not currently engaged in acquisition right now. 

I think right now we feel very good about who we are as a company, and the capabilities, and talent, and teams, and IP we have across the organization, and we have a very clear strategy and an even clearer pipeline for growth across IP and across platforms.

That being said, I think we're always looking for great opportunities to drive even more growth and to entertain even more people through great games, and experiences, and IP and will continue to work and look at that over the course of time.

But it's not something right now that we're actively engaging in.
