EA CEO Andrew Wilson said that the firm is looking at what Warner Bros. did with Batman Arkham series and applying it to the upcoming Star Wars games.

In the same interview with CNN’s Fortune we reported on this morning, Andrew Wilson, EA’s CEO expressed admiration of how Warner Bros handled the story and arc in the Arkham 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, while having its own life because it could provide such deep and more immersive storylines.

“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.”

EA is currently the sole publisher of the core games in the Star Wars universe, after buying the rights from Disney last year. We know that DICE is working on a new Battlefront title, with another unannounced title in the works at Visceral.
