A new Star Wars game titled Star Wars: Squadrons leaked online this morning thanks to an early listing on Microsoft’s Xbox website. The new game appears to be a new starfighter game possibly related to the Rogue Squadron series.
The store listing featured the tag, “Pilots wanted” further suggesting that Star Wars: Squadrons is a pilot game. Reports say that this is the mysterious Star Wars: Project Maverick that leaked on PSN earlier this year.
The leaked art for Star Wars: Squadrons shows both an imperial Tie-Fighter pilot and Rebel Pilot, and the two sides engaging in combat.
If this is the rumored Project Maverick that would mean this is one of EA Motive’s rumored Star Wars projects. Motive’s previous Star Wars experience includes developing the single-player campaign for Star Wars: Battlefront 2.
