While the exact details of EA’s deal to exclusively develop games for the Star Wars franchise aren’t known, Sony Online Entertainment has confirmed the deal doesn’t damage their free-to-play title Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures.
“Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures is fully armed and operational,” a representative for the company told the site. “This week’s announcement does not affect our current agreement with Lucasfilm.”
This confirmation gives a good indication that EA’s deal may have specific exceptions – and it may be the case that PC-based free to play titles simply aren’t included in the agreement. Nintendo fans will likely be hoping for more such exceptions after EA confirmed that its Frostbite 3-based Star Wars games wouldn’t be appearing on Wii U. Thanks, CVG.
