Secret Star Wars: Project Maverick game discovered on PSN


What on earth is this? (pic: Twitter)

EA seems to be preparing for a stealth release of a mysterious new Star Wars game set during the original trilogy.

So here’s an odd one. Fans sifting through updates on PSN have discovered a reference to a previously unknown Star Wars game, called Project Maverick.

The Twitter account PSN Releases turned up not just the name (which is odd in itself as it doesn’t seem to reference anything from the movies) but also the image above, but alas no text describing what any of it means.

You can clearly see X-wing fighters at the bottom and the Star Destroyer is an Imperial I-class, that had been phased out by the time of The Empire Strikes Back. Which means whatever Maverick is it’s set in the same general time period as both A New Hope and video game Fallen Order.

Although there’s no clue as to what the game is – if it even is a game – Kotaku’s Jason Schreier recently stated that EA currently has two Star Wars games in development: one of which is Fallen Order 2 and the other a ‘smaller, more unusual project’.

He’s confirmed via Twitter that Project Maverick is the smaller project but, again, not what it is.

It’s believed that Project Maverick is being developed by Motive Studios, which was established in 2015 but so far has only helped out with the story campaign in Star Wars: Battlefront 2.

Motive are thought to be working on a revamped version of Visceral Game’s cancelled Star Wars game, codenamed Ragtag, but their current status is still unclear.

Given how many Star Wars games EA has cancelled over the years it’s hard to guess what’s going on, so it’s even more surprising to see one pop up out of the blue.

If it’s already on PSN though it should be officially announced any day now.
