Following its acquisition of the Star Wars franchise, and subsequent shuttering of the Lucasarts game development studio, Disney has signed with Electronic Arts as the exclusive licensee of games based on the cult franchise.
Under the agreement, EA will develop and publish new Star Wars titles for a core gaming audience, spanning all interactive platforms and the most popular game genres, while Disney will retain certain rights to develop new titles within the mobile, social, tablet and online game categories.

“This agreement demonstrates our commitment to creating quality game experiences that drive the popularity of the Star Wars franchise for years to come,” said John Pleasants, Co-President of Disney Interactive. “Collaborating with one of the world’s premier game developers will allow us to bring an amazing portfolio of new Star Wars titles to our fans around the world.”
Interestingly, the deal appears to be restricted to three of EA's subsidiary studios, Visceral Games, BioWare, and DICE, and President Frank Gibeau stipulates that "the new experiences we create may borrow from films, but the games will be entirely original with all new stories and gameplay".

All the KoTOR storylines are wrapped up in TOR.

All I want is for Bioware to make KOTOR 3, I really don't care about SWTOR at this point, I would consider it a spin-off.. If DICE makes a battlefront, it should be alright.

Well... Not with Revan or the Exile... They sort of ended up in a bad place.

Published, different to developer.

Hopefully Disney will reign EA in on their pushy publishing power.
