At E3 last year, EA announced that it would be developing for the Star Wars license and announced the development of Star Wars Battlefront by DICE. In an interview with Fortune, EA CEO Andrew Wilson talked about how they are approaching Star Wars games. He reiterated that they don’t plan on recreating any of the movies and instead want to take an approach similar to Batman and the Arkham series.

“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, while having its own life because it could provide such deep and more immersive storylines,” said Wilson.

“When we look at the Star Wars properties that’s how we’re looking at it. We’re not trying to build a game that replicates the storyline of any particular film.”

What are your thoughts on this approach? What do you want EA to do with the Star Wars IP? Let us know in the comments below.
