In an unfortunate leak, the Microsoft Store revealed Star Wars: Squadrons to the public earlier today with some keyart being temporarily displayed on the front page. It is an upcoming EA-published title that was yet to be announced.
Only a few hours later, EA has decided to go with the flow and confirm the game’s existence officially, saying that Star Wars: Squadrons will be unveiled with a trailer on June 15 at 8AM PT.
While official information is scarce, VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb reports that Squadrons is being developed by EA Motive, a studio that has previously assisted in the making of Star Wars Battlefront II and Anthem. The title will apparently be focused on multiplayer space combat, with players using iconic Star Wars ships as expected. A single-player campaign will be present too, according to the report.
Interestingly, the Star Wars: Squadrons reveal will happen a few days before the publisher takes to the digital stage for its EA Play Live 2020 event, which is kicking off on June 18 at 4PM PT. Moreover, EA has been releasing quite a few of its games on Steam recently, and this could be another title that launches on the Valve platform alongside Origin, similar to Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order.
