Although Star Wars fans are adamantly cautious on new productions since the latest trilogy of films that hit theaters, inspired video games are shifting in a more positive direction. For certainty, the trend that began with the DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront reboot in 2015 and later in 2017 left a bad aftertaste beyond the polished graphics and tuned gunplay. However, Respawn Entertainment calibrated the connotation with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order in 2019.
Now looking ahead, there are several projects that are on the way. Certainly, Star Wars fans are hungry to see what the anticipated sequel will be from the Titanfall team. The game was last reported to aim for a 2022 launch window. Additionally, The Division team Massive Entertainment has signed on to work with Lucasfilms Games on an open-world RPG entry as well.
Recently, word broke out that the publisher is extending its reach to Heavy Rain, Detroit Become Human studio Quantic Dream for a new Star Wars title. It was at The Game Awards viewers learned that to be accurate with the reveal of Star Wars Eclipse. You can watch the trailer in the video below:
