Star Wars games currently in development

As we have written several times on these pages, Star Wars is a real multimedia mosaic that expands through various mediums. In this context, video games are among the most important pieces of the puzzle, also because they are often conceived in such a way as to be "different" in terms of plots and characters, but at the same time perfectly understandable and well placed within his universe, of which they deepen many aspects. A combination, that between Star Wars and videogames, among other things destined to be cemented even further in the future: between announced games or simply "rumored", but from fairly reliable sources, there are several titles that await us in the years to come. Let's see what games are currently in development dedicated to Star Wars, starting with the safe three.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga (Multiplatform - WBE)

Coming this spring of this year after a very long gestation, but then unfortunately postponed to a later date due to the desire by the development team, namely Traveller's Tales, to "create a game that can meet the expectations of the players", LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is a highly anticipated title by fans. And this is not only because it will take up practically the entire Star Wars saga, putting the player in command of its many protagonists, but also because it will probably be the richest LEGO game ever. The title, in fact, will be able to count on a really huge roster, with 800 characters taken from the series, including those of the last trilogy, of which 300 are even playable. To support all these protagonists and make them interact with a game world that promises to be large and full of details, there will be a renewed graphics engine, for a production that, according to the publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, will be more than a "simple "more of the same.

Star Wars Hunters (NSW, iOS and Android - Zynga)

Star Wars Hunters is a free-to-play for Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android developed by NaturalMotion and published by Zynga, which will allow players to take on the role of the most famous hunters in the Star Wars universe. Set from the narrative point of view between Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Awakening of the Force, Star Wars Hunters is in fact a very interesting team online multiplayer title on the cards, both because it clears the free-to-play format also. on the Nintendo hybrid console, both because it concerns a project also designed for smartphones and tablets, that is a branch so far little explored by Switch. In the game you will need to form a team of fighters by choosing them from a cast of unique and completely new characters, from bounty hunters to heroes of the rebellion to soldiers of the imperial troops, through which you then clash with other teams in arenas inspired by some of the most stars of Star Wars.

Star Wars (Provisional title - Ubisoft)

Announced by LucasFilm Games last January 2021, this project whose title is currently unknown is a new game in production at Ubisoft Massive studios, the authors of Tom Clancy's The Division and its sequel. The title, according to the CEO of the company, Yves Guillemot, is still in an embryonic state, but we already know that it will be an open world story driven, that is a game with a wide world that can be freely explored and with rather developed narrative characteristics, based on the Snowdrop Engine. It is easy to hypothesize a play structure not very dissimilar to that of The Division, with a game experience that can actually be lived alone, but at the same time with an online component that is absolutely impossible to ignore for many reasons. For the rest we know nothing, nor can we therefore hypothesize anything else. A bit like the other games on Star Wars only "rumored" but not yet formalized.

Jedi: Fallen Order 2 (Rumor - EA, Respawn Entertainemnt)

Among the games set in the Star Wars universe but not yet officially announced there could be Jedi: Fallen Order 2. This was suggested by a tweet from Electronic Arts last January 13, where the US company confirmed that it was still working on the Star Wars franchise, despite no longer having an exclusive license. In the message, in particular, there was a reference to BD-1, one of the characters of the first Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, an element that immediately triggered a spring in the heads of many fans. Interestingly, EA's next official statement regarding its collaboration with Lucasfilm: "We are proud of our long-standing partnership with Lucasfilm Games, which will continue for years to come ... We love Star Wars and look forward to create even more exciting experiences for players. " If we add to this that Respawn Entertainemnt is hiring for a project related to Star Wars, it seems to us that the clues can be considered quite concrete.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake (Rumor - Aspyr Media)

The long-awaited (by fans) remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic or KOTOR, as it is usually called, has been rumored for a long time now. But the well-known journalist and insider of the videogame industry Jason Schreier recently thought to feed dreams and hopes, who asserted that the title is really in development and that the studio chosen for the project is Aspyr Media, or a specialized team in game ports. Aspyr, in fact, is responsible for the ports of Star Wars Jedi Knight and Star Wars Episode 1 Racer. Furthermore, it is the same team that took care of KOTOR in Mac, Linus, iOS and Android versions. The ongoing work at this development team is in effect a "project with a budget of approximately $ 70 million, which is expected to become important for the whole group". During a recent streaming presentation, the team reported that they were working on a licensed triple-A game, and this evidence has sparked further theories that it may be KOTOR.

Star Wars : Project Luminous (Rumor - EA Motive)

We know very little about Star Wars: Project Luminous, and in his case we find ourselves faced with a series of rumors and conjectures more than for other projects. The game should, however, be part of a cross-media project that should also cover films, comic series, novels and indeed, at least one video game. All these productions would have as their setting a specific period, namely that of the Era of the High Republic, which would in fact be explored through a series of stories set 400 years before the Skywalker saga. Project Luminous should therefore see protagonists one or more Jedi traveling in the unknown regions of the galaxy, to explore various environments and face powerful Sith and enemies of different types. The development of the project could be EA Motive, a team that was involved both in the development of the Star Wars of Visceral Games, and in the open world of EA Vancouver, both canceled by Electronic Arts which did not consider, at the time, the great single experiences profitable. player, and that now, instead, he may have thought about it.

The Mandalorian or Battlefront III (Rumor - EA)

The Mandalorian is one of the best series ever in recent years, especially right if you are a Star Wars fan. The series, set in the Star Wars universe created by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, is now on everyone's lips for the general quality of the production, and it was therefore inevitable that its story and its protagonist would attract the interest of those who develop. videogame. According to some rumors, also fueled by actress Janina Gavankar, who played Iden Versio in Star Wars: Battlefront II, a game set simultaneously with the events of The Mandalorian would be in the works at the studios of the usual Electronic Arts.

Initially we had thought of Star Wars: Battlefront III or a prequel of the second chapter, but then the rumors also spread on the mysterious television Mandalorian that recalls the legendary Boba Fett and on a possible game, of which no you know the genre, dedicated only to him. The work, in fact, would therefore see this fascinating character, difficult to frame, as the protagonist, who moves in the undergrowth of Star Wars, an environment that fans of the saga know much better thanks to the novels, the old and new Expanded Universe comics and to the same TV series.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on the new generation of consoles

To the new titles set in the Star Wars universe, certain or presumably in the works, we also add PS5 versions and Xbox Series X and S of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, the 3D action set in the Star Wars universe that has been so successful on PC, Xbox One and PS4, which should offer several technical improvements and be free for those who have an older generation console version.
