The video game developer has already enjoyed huge success with sci-fi titles, and the company has pledged to continue to throw its support behind the franchise in the coming years.

EA CEO Andrew Wilson said: "We have a tremendous relationship with Disney. We have a tremendous relationship with Lucas.

"We have a longstanding relationship with them going all the way back to 'Star Wars The Old Republic' that we launched in 2011."

Wilson has been thrilled with the success of the 'Star Wars' franchise - and hopes it continues to bear fruit in the coming years.

He said: "We're going to double down on that partnership. Disney continues to be very very committed to the IP and to the canon."

Wilson is also confident EA has the structures in place to ensure the company continues to enjoy success.

He shared: "We've got the combination of great IP, great development expertise and experience and success from us across genres, across platforms, across business models. And we've got new generations [of fans] coming to the IP all the time.

"So our expectation is we think there continues to be a really really strong opportunity in an around that relationship and that IP going forward."
