The Quantic Dream studio, specializing in games with a cinematographic and narrative dimension, would develop a game based on the Star Wars license, which would take place during the period of the High Republic. First images soon?
French studio (even Parisian) specializing in narrative video games with a cinematographic dimension, Quantic Dream has collaborated for years and exclusively with Sony, with titles such as Heavy rain, Beyond: Two Souls, or the last opus, Detroit: Become Human.
In January 2019, this exclusivity ended, while the studio, led by its founders David Cage and Guillaume de Fondaumière, is now developing several projects on different platforms.
Among them is a Star Wars game, not yet official. A great first for this studio, which is more on such a license, Quantic Dream being best known for developing original projects rather than working on licenses.
According to the site Eurogamer, this game, which would have the code name Star Wars Eclipse, would take place during the period known as the High Republic, nearly two hundred years before the events of the film Star Wars episode I: The Phantom Menace, and corresponds to a golden age of the Jedi. For the anecdote, the series in development Star Wars: The Acolyte, scheduled on Disney + for 2023, will take place during this period.
It’s only a matter of time before Quantic Dream officializes his game. This should probably be the case, accompanied by at least a teaser, if not a trailer (let’s be crazy …), during the evening of Game Awards, scheduled for December 9th.
Unless the ad is booked for the week of December 14, when Disney and Lucasfilm are planning to announce a Star Wars video game. But other publishers / studios are already in the starting blocks, between Ubisoft working on an open world Star Wars game, the highly anticipated remake of the fabulous game Star Wars: Knights of The Old Republic, and Electronic Arts who is still developing games on the license and does not seem ready to let go. Wait and see so…
