Detroit: Become Human and Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream is rumored to be working on a new Star Wars video game. The rumor stems from French YouTuber Gautoz who claimed, "They now finished their contract with Sony and will be signing with Disney. It looks like they will be working on a Star Wars game."
Gautoz's rumor was later corroborated by reliable video games industry insider Tom Henderson, who posted a cryptic Star Wars and Detroit mashup on Twitter.
Quantic Dream is best known for its narrative-driven games like Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and most recently Detroit: Become Human. The studio tends to put more of an emphasis on cinematic storytelling with gameplay that heavily involves player decision-making with choices greatly impacting how the story unfolds.
Star Wars video games tend to focus more on the action, but this sort of approach to a video game would be a welcomed change. Neither Lucasfilm nor Quantic Dream have officially announced anything.
Since Lucasfilm Games opened up the Star Wars universe to different developers, we've gotten a slew of new game announcements. A Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake was most recently announced to be in development at Aspyr Media, and Ubisoft is currently working on an an open world title. EA is still believed to be developing a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and there's still Star Wars: Hunters coming to Nintendo Switch and mobile in 2022.
