EA and Disney sign exclusive deal for rights to Star Wars games

Electronic Arts and Disney have signed an exclusive, multi-year licensing agreement for EA to publish Star Wars games developed by Visceral Games, DICE and BioWare, the companies announced today.

The agreement covers titles aimed at core gamers on “all interactive platforms”; Disney retains the rights to make casual and social games in the Star Wars universe on mobile devices, tablets and the web. The House of Mouse acquired Lucasfilm and its subsidiary Lucasarts for $4.05 billion last October, and closed LucasArts last month.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
