An arena shooter set in the galaxy far, far away called Star Wars: Hunters is now planned to be released next year.
Team-based combat takes place throughout the Star Wars universe in this competitive online brawler. In addition to the Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android devices will be able to play the game. It was initially scheduled to go into production in 2021, but that date was later moved back to the following year, and it has since been put back again to 2023.
The statement on Twitter (opens in new tab) states, “Our objective is to develop a competitive combat arena game that will amuse for years to come.” Star Wars: Hunters will be delayed internationally in order to satisfy the high goals we have set for the game and for ourselves as creators.
“When Star Wars: Hunters comes on Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android devices in 2023, we encourage all players to join us on Vespaara.
Game delays can be stressful, and we’re here to help.” “Our number one goal is to provide the finest possible Arena experience for our players,” says a spokesperson.
In India, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Indonesia, Star Wars: Hunters has already had a soft launch. NaturalMotion will continue to provide feature updates for the game in these regions prior to its global release.
An eternity to wait for a galaxy that’s been around for so long
The sole Star Wars game set for release this year, despite its low profile, is Star Wars: Hunters. With a new release date of 2023, fans of George Lucas’s sci-fi universe will have to wait even longer.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, Respawn’s follow-up to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, will be released in 2019. Starfield and other heavyweights are slated to premiere in early 2023, thus it’s possible that this game may be released later rather than sooner.
We don’t anticipate any more Star Wars games to be released in the near future, even if they’ve been announced. There have been no updates on the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake and no word on when Quantic Dreams’ Star Wars Eclipse will be out.
Similarly, nothing is known about the recently revealed Star Wars project from Amy Hennig, the director of Uncharted. We have no idea when the next open-world Star Wars game from Ubisoft will be released. Also in development is a Star Wars FPS and a strategy game, which look to be in the early phases of development.
We’re going to have to wait for a long before we get our next new Star Wars video game fix, Wookiees and droids! It is to be hoped that Star Wars: Hunters lives up to the cuteness of its cast and is a fitting successor to the original trilogy.
