Fun fact, seminal sci-fi series The Twilight Zone is making a comeback this year, both on TV and it seems real-life too. With Disney CEO Bob Iger stating in a financial earnings call, "The best place for us to be in that space [games] is licensing and not publishing. We’ve had good relationships with some of those we’re licensing to, notably EA and the relationship on the Star Wars properties".

Of course the community and Star Wars fans at large share an almost polar opposite viewpoint in that in the five years since Disney signed an exclusive deal with EA all that we've seen are two Star Wars Battlefront games - both flawed, for different reasons. That, and the cancellation of the more single-player story-focused Star Wars games. One of which carried with it the magical description of "Uncharted but Star Wars".

The earnings call also confirms that Disney has no real interest in becoming a publisher or investing large sums of money towards the development of Star Wars games. Fun fact number two, after Disney bought Star Wars it shutdown LucasArts. “We’re obviously mindful of the size of that business,” Iger notes. “Over the years, as you know, we’ve tried our hand at self-publishing, we’ve bought companies, we’ve sold companies, we’ve bought developers, we’ve closed developers. And we’ve found over the years that we haven’t been particularly good at the self-publishing side, but we’ve been great at the licensing side which obviously doesn’t require that much allocation of capital."

Great at licensing would naturally mean more Star Wars games than what we've seen. Stuff that could sit alongside the diverse films we've gotten since the release of Star Wars Episode VII. Say, a new Rogue Squadron or Tie Fighter type game, a fun indie style platformer ala the Super Star Wars series to tie-in with the new trilogy, an RPG that hearkens back to the classic Knight of the Old Republic era. Uncharted but Star Wars.
