Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order did so well because it told an original story in the acclaimed universe. It seems like Disney took notice and want to encourage other developers to tell original stories too. Sean Shoptaw, Senior Vice President of Games and Interactive Experiences at Disney, recently discussed his goals wtih The Hollywood Reporter.
You can read his vision for games below. He believes that original stories will be successful in the gaming space.
I'm here for one specific reason: to empower you to do really unique things with our catalog. We want to tap into the power of creatives across the industry.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Shoptaw emphasized the importance of original storytelling and reimagining what Disney characters and settings could be. Let's hope that Square Enix's Avengers game lives up to these expectations. How successful Disney is with this approach remains to be seen because finding the right, experienced developer is just as important.
