EA reports that Respawn Entertainment is now working on a new Star Wars game. Respawn Entertainment was founded by Jason West and Vince Zampella (previously set up Infinity Ward at Activision) who after aligning themselves with EA produced the multiplayer hit, Titanfall.

Better yet we've a key mind behind the God of War series, Stig Asmussen who will join West and Zampella, and the rest of the team in the production of the new Star Wars game. Asmussen published some info about his new gig on a recent blog post:

“For me, just typing these words is surreal. I have been playing Star Wars games my whole life, now I get to make a Star Wars game. But it’s not all fun and games — we promise to pay respect to the Star Wars legacy at all times, a fact that will be constantly reinforced and honored as a central game design tenet. Moving forward, we couldn’t ask for a better universe in which to continue this journey, and although I would love to share all of the exciting places we are going, we have the following piece of information to divulge with you all today: We’ll be making a third-person action-adventure game set in the Star Wars universe.

Now, I understand on the surface this might sound a bit dry, but developing a game within the ever-expanding Star Wars universe opens up so many paths for us to go down, and an unparalleled playground to design within. We have already planted the seeds by assembling a small, but incredibly talented team, ready for the amazing journey that lies ahead. With this in mind we are looking to expand the dream.”

Third-person action-adventure. Alright, alright. Thoughts on that? Seeing as that's pretty much all we've got to run on at this point.

What do you make of it? Is the decision by Infinity Ward to steer toward space, and away from their 'roots' (WWII for example) a wise or foolish one?

If you want to play the whole Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 experience, you're going to have to own a current-generation console.

Activision announced on their Call of Duty blog Sept. 25 that the upcoming release of Black Ops 3 for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 will only come with the multiplayer and the zombie mode.

They said what they developed for the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One is too l33t for that old generation.

The Black Ops 3 PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will feature Multiplayer and Zombies gameplay only, not Campaign. The ambitious scope of the 1-4 player coop Campaign design of the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions could not be faithfully recreated on old generation hardware.

Delivering the best possible gameplay experience on all platforms is always our highest priority. With that in mind, Black Ops 3 PS3 and Xbox 360 players can continue to look forward to a new experience of Black Ops 3 multiplayer, including the new momentum-based, chain-movement system, as well as the all-new Specialist class of 9 Black Ops soldiers, which fundamentally change the way players engage in combat.



They did say they would price this edited version $10 cheaper at $49.99 and include a bonus download of the original Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Seeing as how Black Ops 3 releases on Nov. 6, this admission is cutting it pretty close.

And it also says a lot about how much they value the campaign:

Creating a living, breathing world in a video game is an arduous task. In such a painstaking, difficult process, there are always bound to be a few details that, whether unintentionally missed or intentionally ignored for the sake of time, are bound to slip through the cracks of the final cut. Some are never noticed, but the ones that are have a great chance of being hilarious.
