Frontier developments, the developer behind both Elite Dangerous and Planet Coaster, has now acquired a Hollywood movie license, which will allow them to create a new game that is based on an "enduring franchise of global renown".
 
Right now Frontier Developments has not released any information about what movie franchise that the developer will be working with, though the company does state that the franchise already has a "worldwide profile" and is a "perfect match for our (Frontier's) Expertise".  Below are some comments from David Braben to the London Stock Exchange. 

  

The third franchise is an important next step in our growth,

We have chosen to license this particular IP to work with as our third franchise, because we believe we can create something very special. It is creatively stimulating, already has a high worldwide profile, and is a perfect match for our expertise.

At this time it is unknown what this new movie-based game will be, though this news has already increased the share price of Frontier Developments by 3.2%.

Frontier already has a space game which is still in active development and will be for a few more years, why would they make another one.Quote

Because the brand Star Wars literally has world wide renown and any other space game immediately fails in comparison to the profits it would bring in. So. It's worth it.Quote
