Apart from employee layoffs, it seems Electronic Arts will also be cancelling its Star Wars FPS action game.

A report emerged about this particular project just weeks ago claiming the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor developer Respawn Entertainment was working on a "first-person Star Wars Mandalorian game".

EA's Entertainment president Laura Miele has now confirmed the third-party giant will be shutting down this particular project which was supposedly in "early development".

"It's always hard to walk away from a project, and this decision is not a reflection of the team’s talent, tenacity, or passion they have for the game. Giving fans the next installments of the iconic franchises they want is the definition of blockbuster storytelling and the right place to focus."

Going forward, EA will instead show "greater focus" on its own "owned IP, sports, and massive online communities".

This reported Star Wars game was apparently going to be "very fast-paced" thanks to the Mandalorian jetpack and would have offered a "wide variety" of weapons and gadgets as you travelled around the galaxy capturing bounties.

Although EA is cancelling this particular project, it will still go ahead with other new licensed projects like Iron Man and Black Panther. Team members working on the Star Wars project will reportedly be reassigned to other EA projects.

As for Respawn's popular Star Wars: Jedi series, there's no need to worry, as it will apparently continue on.
