When it was announced at the Game Awards 2021, Star Wars Eclipse attracted the attention of many players, because it brings together the incredible universe of Star Wars, and the know-how of Quantic Dream. The French studio has, indeed, offered us several high quality productions in recent years, and in particular Detroit: Become Human, very successful.
But Quantic Dream also stood out in recent months due to some internal issues, before the studio spoke up to reassure the world., indicating that the workforce had increased by 50%, in particular with the aim of developing Star Wars Eclipse, which was again talked about during the Tokyo Game Show. Guillaume de Fondaumiere, CEO of the company, indeed spoke in an interview with IGN Japan, to provide details on the game.
This confirms that innovative things will be integrated with Star Wars Eclipse, as has been the case with each new game for the studio. In his words, the elements that made the success of Quantic Dream productions will be kept, such as the story, endearing characters, influential actions, while adding new things, such as the action. Guillaume de Fondaumiere confirmed thatStar Wars Eclipse will be an action-adventure game, without going into details.
Where the formula changes, we’ve made it very clear that we’re doing an action-adventure, so the action elements are going to be very important as well. It’s something we can talk about in the future, but keep in mind that this is an action-adventure.
We will have to wait a bit to see the experience that will be offered to us with Star Wars Eclipse, but these few words will undoubtedly reassure players. Regarding the context, remember that the events will take place during the High Republic, about 200 years before Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, when the Jedi were masters. No release date has been shared at this time.
