A new Kotaku report surfaced that corroborates claims about Quantic Dreams developing a Star Wars game. The source, reportedly familiar with the studio's plans, says the Quantic Dreams Star Wars game has been in development for a year and a half, and it moves away from the studio's usual gameplay model.

Specifically, it won't rely on quick time events, may be open world, and could be multiplayer as well.

Original Story

It looks like Quantic Dream, David Cage's game studio responsible for titles like Beyond: Two Souls, Heavy Rain, and Detroit: Become Human will be trying its hand at making a Star Wars game.

Thanks to VGC for bringing this to our attention. It looks like a French Youtuber known as Gautoz has said Quantic Dream have signed a deal with Disney and will have access to the Star Wars IP.

"They now finished their contract with Sony and will be signing with Disney. It looks like they will be working on a Star Wars game."

This claim has been corroborated by Tom Henderson, who has been accurate in past games industry claims. You can see his Tweet below.

It'll be interesting to see how Quantic Dream approaches the Star Wars IP. With allegations of a toxic workplace well-known amongst people in the gaming sphere, which they took legal action against, it's surprising to many that such a popular series is being adapted by such a controversial studio.

With Aspyr's remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic announced recently, it looks like Star Wars games will be coming left, right, and centre. Let's just hope the Sith chimp who repairs Kylo Ren's helmet features in some of them.
