A new Star Wars game is reportedly in development by the popular studio Quantic Dream. The rumors have begun after popular data miner and trustworthy leaker, Tom Henderson, tweeted out a cryptic image alluding to the game’s existence.
The image tweeted out by Tom Henderson was two crossed lightsabers from the Star Wars franchise, along with a character from Detroit: Become Human, the previous game released by the studio. No message or description came along with the image, leaving many people to assume that a new game in the franchise is on the way.
After Tom posted this image, the theories of Star Wars game gained further traction after he liked multiple replies guessing that Quantic Dream was indeed creating a new game in the franchise.
The next important piece of information that backs up these rumors is that Quantic Dream is effectively hiring for a number of roles for its next-generation action/adventure AAA title, many of which hint at a new game such as Star Wars. Some of these job roles are Senior Game Designer, Producer, Artistic Director, Lead Game Designer, and Senior Writer. All of these positions are focused on their next AAA project.
For the description of the Lead Game Designer role, the next AAA title is discussed, stating the following
As a Lead Game Designer you will collaborate in the creation of the basic concepts of the game, and will be responsible for the design and fine-tuning of playability. You will be working on an ambitious and innovative project based on interactive narration on a next-generation console.”
It seems that Lucasfilm Games is becoming extremely open to sharing the license around to different studios, which is a positive change over recent times, as earlier it was only EA that had a license to publish Star Wars games. As such, these changes are a wonderful change of pace. Just recently, a Knights of the Old Republic remake for PlayStation was revealed during the PlayStation Showcase, so it is great to be seeing new entries in the franchise.
It will be interesting to see what happens in the future regarding these rumors and whether we will see any time of reveal in the near future. Regardless, it’s an exciting thought to think of what Quantic Dream can create in the Star Wars world, especially with the experience and success they have had with previous titles.
