Reportedly EA Motive’s “smaller, more unusual” title.
A previously unannounced new Star Wars title, currently going by the name Project Maverick, has leaked onto PlayStation Store.
Project Maverick was initially spotted by a Resetera user after its details were scraped and spat out onto the internet by the bot-driven Twitter account psnrelease, ordinarily intended to notify follows of new PlayStation titles and updates as they arrive on Sony’s store.
In this instance, however, the bot dug up details almost certainly not intended for public release, pertaining to a game known simply as Maverick. That in itself wouldn’t have drawn much attention, were it not for the accompanying artwork, featuring an Imperial Star Destroyer, several mingling X-Wings, and the cincher: it’s full name, Star Wars: Project Maverick.
Polygon, incidentally, which clearly knows more about Star Wars than I do, suggests the artwork offers a glimpse of the volcanic planet Mustafar.
As for the veracity of the leak, Kotaku reports that Star Wars: Project Maverick is legit, and the same “smaller, more unusual” title it revealed to be in the works at EA Motive last year. Hopefully EA will be ready to clear up some of the mystery soon.
