As fans patiently wait for news on a new EA-developed Star Wars title set for release in 2021, it appears that a classic Star Wars title from the past is coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
First released in 2005, LucasArts’ Star Wars: Republic Commando was met with widespread positivity from fans across the world. The tactical first-person shooter originally released on PC and original Xbox consoles and saw players take control of a Clone Trooper and a squad during the Clone Wars.
For Star Wars fans wanting to take a trip down memory lane with some classic titles, the last 12 months have been a lot of fun. In May 2020, a remastered version of Star Wars Episode I: Racer was released, much to the delight of fans of the themed racing title.
While some fans may have been left hanging while others whizzed around in their pod racers, it appears that Republic Commando will be the next classic to arrive.
