Few details have leaked out star wars eclipse, Quantic Dream’s next big bet for the new generation of home consoles. A fortiori, the studio should not go off the beaten track, once again betting on an ultra-narrative game, taking place in the era of the High Republic, a new historical period ud canon Star Wars widely promoted by Disney for its new transmedia products. However, although its first trailer didn’t skimp on the visuals, the game would still be in its early stages of production—and would suffer from a lack of manpower within the studio, pushing back its horizon of release around fiscal year 2027-2028.
Star Wars Eclipse and Quantic Dream in need of developers
In any case, this is what Henderson’s sources claim: Quantic Dream would have a hard time recruiting new developers, judging by the dozens of job offers available on its official website.
