Star Wars: Squadrons

Update: The EA Star Wars Twitter account has now confirmed that Star Wars: Squadrons is real and an official announcement trailer will drop on Monday at 8am PT / 4pm BST. We will, of course, cover the reveal here on Push Square when the time arrives.

Original story: Whoops, the Microsoft Store has leaked another game ahead of schedule. Adding to the Mafia Trilogy and Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning, the storefront hosted an advertisement for a title named Star Wars: Squadrons for a short period of time.

It's very safe to assume that this is Project Maverick, which accidentally leaked a bit of key art a few months ago. Spotted by Gematsu, the new image you see above prominently features X-wing starfighters as well as TIE fighters, suggesting that this is an experience focused on space battles. It's developed by EA Motive and we should hear more about this project in the near future. It's not yet known if this is a next-gen PlayStation 5 title.

VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb has added: "It has a single-player campaign that is a few hours long. But the focus is on multiplayer space combat."
