Star Wars Squadrons has been confirmed on the EA Star Wars Twitter account, with an official reveal trailer arriving later today, June 15th, at 8:00am PT / 4:00pm BST / 11:00am ET. We’ll be sure to bring you all the details from the game’s official premiere, which you can watch on the EA Star Wars YouTube channel.
It had earlier appeared to have been leaked early. The game appeared briefly on the Microsoft Store showing the new title and game art. It’s now been taken down, but a screengrab of the game’s page has already popped up from Lant_War on ResetEra:
The image shows TIE fighters and X-Wings alongside the phrase “Pilots wanted”. Kotaku recently claimed to have heard from sources that EA has two Star Wars titles in the works, one being a “smaller, more unusual project”. Rumours of a new Star Wars game, Project Maverick, popped up around the same time. It seems Project Maverick might have been a codename for Star Wars Squadrons. According to Jeff Grub on VentureBeat, this is indeed the case: Grub says “sources familiar with the game’s production” have said Star Wars: Squadrons will launch in Fall, with a single-player campaign and a main focus on multiplayer.
EA has been keeping details of any new games close to its chest, and aside from this piece of game art, there’s no information whatsoever about Star Wars Squadrons. However, EA’s digital event EA Play Live takes place in just under a week on June 18th. EA has been just as careful with details about this event, and have only said "EA Play Live 2020 is about connecting players around the world and bringing them closer to the game franchises they love.”
