New STAR WARS: ECLIPSE Video Game Set During The High Republic Era Reportedly In The Works At Quantic Dream

Star Wars: Eclipse is a new video game that's reportedly in the works at Quantic Dream and will be set during the High Republic era. Hit the jump to find out more...

At this point, it's almost a given that Quantic Dream is working on a new Star Wars game. Multiple different sources have said as much throughout the year, though there isn't any information is out there beyond that. Well, that was the case. Recently, industry insider Jeff Grubb shared some tantalising tidbits about the mysterious title on their podcast. While Grubb has proven himself quite reputable, don't take any of the following as a certainty.

According to Grubb, the Star Wars video game that's in the works at Quantic Dream is titled: Star Wars: Eclipse. Apparently, it's set during the High Republic era. This is a section of the Star Wars timeline that only recently came into being. It's set prior to the events of Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace and during the two-hundred years in which the Galactic Republic was at the peak of its power; a golden age for the Jedi and for exploration and expansion into the Outer Rim of the galaxy.

If that's true, expect the game to revolve around the Jedi and be rife with exciting lightsaber combat. Prior rumours surrounding this project have suggested that the game would be open-world based along the lines of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order which was developed by Respawn Entertainment; though Grubb had no information of that sort to reveal.

Quantic Dream is best known for Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and Detroit: Become Human. These games have a few things in common but most predominantly, they're all narrative-focused and more so revolve around making decisions than anything like combat or open-world exploration. So, if the rumours do hold true, it would certainly be a new step for the studio.
