Star Wars Video Games, Movies Will Be Separate

The force is strong with this one. A 10-year deal between Disney's Lucasfilm and Electronic Arts will keep Star Wars movies and video games separate.
So, the "Star Wars: Battlefront" game and the "Star Wars VII" movie will both come out in 2015. But one won't be based on the other. And that separate coexistence will continue. (Via YouTube / EA )
That also means continued development of movie-independent games such as "Star Wars: The Old Republic." (YouTube / swtheoldrepublic )
