Disney has licked blood: The mega-company now wants to build on the success of EA's and Respawn's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Square Enix ’Kingdom Hearts – by asking developers from all over the world to work with Disney.
At the video game conference 2020 D.I.C.E. Summit spoke to Sean Shoptaw, Disney Vice President of the Games division, about the future of the studio. A future that – like Hollywood reporter reported – Disney should move deeper into the video game sector, No surprise, after all, they were quite successful with their recent IP Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Shoptaw said:
"I'm here for a very specific reason: to empower you to develop really unique things with us, We want to tap the power of all creative minds in the industry. "
Shoptaw also said that she for original storytelling want to put on as well Reinventing their characters and franchises. In summary: Disney wants to dig deeper into the video game sector, and most likely not alone. As we all know, Disney pulled out of video game development back in 2016 – and started only licensing. With games like Marvel’s Spider-Man, Jedi: Fallen Order or Kingdom Hearts it has been shown that it is definitely worth it. At least for Disney.
And for us too it could be worth itWhen Disney Wills to Work Even More Willingly with Studios: Indiana Jones? Marvel? Tron? Pirates of the Caribbean? Starwars? Alien? X-Men? Not to mention cartoon greats like Lion King or Aladdin. Disney has an abundance of small and gigantic brands that could be used to make games of any kind. Soon. Hopefully. And with the right studios.
After games like Jedi: Fallen Order, we probably don't need to lose heart completely about Disney brands and franchises. Also, how about an Indiana Jones game?
