A Star Wars shooter from EA is in development, but it's not expected to be a Battlefront title according to Reddit user OrcaOrcaisnotalone.
The Redditor, who has somewhat of a proven track record with leaks, noted that the game is "small-scale" when compared to the likes of Battlefront and Jedi: Fallen Order.
Star Wars Shooter Rumoured For 2021, Coming From EA
They also confirmed that the game's scope is similar to Star Wars: Squadrons, EA's recent dogfighting game that was well-received.
The game will launch in Q4 of 2021 on "all major platforms excluding the Nintendo Switch", and is being developed in Unreal Engine 4 (Battlefront is developed using DICE's Frostbite engine).
The big thing of note is that OrcaOrcaisnotalone seems convinced the game is a shooter, but couldn't confirm whether it's first or third-person.
While these kinds of rumblings should be taken with a pinch of salt, it's clear that there's an appetite for Star Wars games.
After all, there's a good chance that Jedi: Fallen Order 2 is already in development, while Battlefront 3 also seems highly likely.
We also know that Aspyr is working on a Knights of the Old Republic title.
Finally, Ubisoft Massive will be developing an open-world Star Wars game – meaning we're sure to be inundated with chances to visit a galaxy far, far away in the next few years.
