We certainly hope that EA achieves what it is aiming, in doing with Star Wars games what Rocksteady’s Arkham series did for Batman.

Eurogamer are citing EA boss Andrew Wilson, who told CNN that EA was looking at Warner Bros.’ successful Arkham franchise as a good model to mirror with Star Wars games.

“What Warner Bros. did with Batman was take the core roots of that IP and manifest that inside the walls of Gotham City and delivered an interactive experience that had real ties to what you would see in the films and what you had read in the comics,” explained Wilson.

Wilson specified that EA is not interested in making a movie tie-in, it won’t replicate the storyline of any particular film either, instead it will focus on a key iconic location or element from the Star Wars franchise.
