Disney Says It Has "Good Relationship" With EA, Prefers To License Games Rather Than Publish

Disney Says It Has

Earlier this year, reports surfaced that Electronic Arts, the publisher currently licensed to develop Star Wars games, had canceled the in-development open-world game set in the galaxy far, far away. This led many to question the relationship between Disney and EA, and whether or not EA has done a good job with the license. During Disney's earnings call yesterday, CEO Bob Iger said that Disney has a "good relationship" with EA, and that the company prefers to license its properties rather than developing and publishing themselves.

"We’re good at making movies and television shows and theme parks and cruise ships and the like, we’ve just never managed to demonstrate much skill on the publishing side of games," Iger said during the call. "[...W]e’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."

Disney sees more financial upside in licensing its properties to video game companies like it has with EA for Star Wars since it doesn't require much financial investment. However, since acquiring the license in 2013, EA has only launched a handful of Star Wars games, including Star Wars: The Old Republic, Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, and the two poorly received Star Wars Battlefront games.

Xbox Offering Original Crackdown For Free Ahead Of Crackdown 3 Launch

Xbox Offering Original Crackdown For Free Ahead Of Crackdown 3 Launch

Crackdown 3, despite numerous delays, is actually coming out this month. With just a few weeks left until release, Microsoft is trying to get players ready by giving away the original Crackdown on Xbox One backward compatibility and Xbox 360 for free.

If you never knew the joy of leaping over small buildings and hurling cars at gang members, or if you simply want a good excuse to do it all again, jump on this chance to see what all the fuss has been about. Plus, if you have an Xbox One X, then this is one of the games even further enhanced by that system.

There was no time limit put on this promotion, but I would suspect the game won't be free forever. In the meantime, you can watch us play it on an episode of Replay.

Cyborg Villain Raidou Returns To Dead Or Alive 6

Before its delay, we'd be right on the eve of Dead or Alive 6's release. We'll be seeing it just two weeks later, but the developers have one last reveal before the game comes out in the form of Raidou, Dead or Alive's longtime cybernetic villain.

You can check out his reveal trailer below.

Much like previous games, Raidou's fighting style is a brutal mix of incredibly hard hits, slams, and dark energy attacks signature to him. He also just slaps you around for fun.
