A Star Wars game known as Project Maverick was rumoured earlier this year
EA has officially announced Star Wars: Squadrons, after information about the game leaked online.
The company took to its official Twitter to reveal the upcoming game after a banner was accidentally released on the Xbox store. The tweet simply reads “Pilots Wanted”, while teasing a bigger reveal trailer coming on June 15 at 4pm BST.
Check out the tweet below.
Details of the game are scarce, but the reveal trailer will li give players a glimpse into the future title for the first time. It’s unclear if the game is related to the previously leaked Star Wars: Project Squadrons. The game was leaked by a Twitter bot account which automatically reports on the latest games added to the PlayStation Store, but the tweet has since been removed.
A previous article from Kotaku noted that a Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order sequel and “and a smaller, more unusual project at EA Motive” are reportedly in development. The latter most likely in reference to Star Wars Squadrons.
EA Play Live was slated to be shown on June 11 and give an insight into the company’s catalogue of upcoming titles. The event was postponed due to the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement and has been rescheduled for June 18.
In a statement on Twitter the company stated that “with the important conversations taking place and important voices being heard around the world right now, we’re moving our time to come together in play”.
