8 major studios that worked on Star Wars video games before Ubisoft

What joyful days we have been thanks to Lucasfilm Games. Following the announcement of a new Indiana Jones game, which is being developed by MachineGames, the firm has announced that Ubisoft Massive, authors of The Division, is developing an open-world video game in the Star Wars saga. A news that caught everyone by surprise and that starts a new era in the video games of the franchise.

In fact, this new announcement, which does not make everyone happy (the co-creator of The Last of Us prefers new IPs to be created), has made us remember other great studies who have made Star Wars video games. There are huge names among developers, and even someone is left out of the selection, such as Obsidian Entertainment, que creó Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords.

There are many Star Wars games, practically almost any gender that we can imagine fits the franchise. There are also crazier ones, like various Pinball or even the Angry Birds Star Wars. It is evident that a saga as successful and enormous as this one gives many different products. It is clear that not all have turned out equally well, but there are authentic masterpieces.

Therefore, in 3D Games we wanted to select 8 great studies external to those of LucasArts who have ever developed a video game (or several) for the Star Wars saga. We find big names, like Factor 5, Ensemble Studios or the studies of Electronic Arts. If you really want to know more about the new title of Ubisoft, we have summarized everything we know in a special.

Factor 5

Factor 5 One of the great classical studios, great LucasArts partner. Factor 5 brought many joys to fans, especially with the beloved Star Wars Rogue Squadron series. In 2019, we heard the news that the main makers of Factor 5 had teamed up with Epic Games, which founded a new studio to work on new forms of interactive entertainment and streaming.

Respawn Entertainment

Respawn Entertainment The creators of Titanfall created one of the last Star Wars games to hit the market, thanks to EA’s license to the saga. The action-adventure video game, with some interesting metroidvania touches, resulted in a great video game, fun and with a demanding combat. A great option to replay on the new generation of consoles thanks to a new update.


DICE The truth and truth is that when the first news broke that the Battlefield parents were going to make a Star Wars game in the wake of the most recent shooter video games, we were all excited. The result was light and dark, especially in the release of the second part and the loot boxes, but overall it made for a very interesting sub-saga.


BioWare The parents of Mass Effect contributed their two cents to the Star Wars saga on a couple of occasions, with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic being the biggest hit. In fact, it is one of the highest rated games by fans and a favorite of many others. After being acquired by EA in 2007, the studio released Star Wars: The Old Republic in 2011, a massively multiplayer online role-playing video game.

Traveller's Tales

Traveller’s Tales Truly, Traveller’s Tales has also been an important partner for LucasArts. Lego video games have been able to adapt the film sagas to video games with a touch of humor and in the case of Star Wars it was no less. Of the various games released, not all have been equally good, but especially LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy stands out.

Pandemic Studios

Pandemic Studios A study that had a good life during the first decade of the 2000s, Destroy all humans! and, in addition, responsible for one of the most beloved subsagas, the original Battlefront. Probably the peak of the study in relation to Star Wars came with Star Wars: Battlefront II, which included playing as a Jedi and space battles. He still has a lot of fans.

Raven Software

Raven Software A very important studio, with a long history with id Software and in the Call of Duty saga, with different developments and collaborations. The studio released a couple of Star Wars video games at the beginning of the 21st century, and especially highlighted Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. Since 2010, the studio has been completely focused on CoD video games.

Ensemble Studios

Ensemble Studios If we talk about real-time strategy video games, we must talk about Ensemble Studios. The parents of Age of Empires released Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds in 2001 and an expansion in 2002. It followed in the wake of AoE, although it had its own gameplay, and is fondly remembered by many fans, although it fell a notch below the studio’s greatest hits.
