EA Motive took to Twitter to put a stop to some speculation that its next game would in-fact take place, much like Star Wars: Squadrons, in that galaxy far, far away.
“Due to human error (hey, it happens!) we’ve seen a lot of speculation,” EA Motive wrote. “While we’re not working on a new Star Wars project, we are working on something pretty special. Follow us here or check back for more info on what we’re up to!”IGN recently spoke to EA Motive, and general manager Patrick Klaus confirmed that there are several projects in the works at the studio, but gave no specific details as to what they might be.
When asked if it would be original IP or based on franchises like Star Wars, Klaus did say the new projects were a bit of both, but didn’t commit to saying Star Wars was going to be a focus again.
Star Wars: Squadrons was released last month and, in our single player review, we said it “tells an entertaining story, while its flight controls hit a sweet spot between accessibility and nuance – and it’s made even better by VR and HOTAS support.”

In our Star Wars: Squadrons multiplayer review, we said “The thrill of Star Wars: Squadrons’ 5v5 dogfights is a treat, so it’s a shame there isn’t more here to sustain it in terms of modes, maps, or progression.”
Unlike many games these days, EA Motive has no plans for any substantial additional content for Star Wars: Squadrons. While it recently released some The Mandalorian-themed DLC, it would seemingly appear that we won’t be seeing any expansions or the sort, although never say never.
