Quantic Dream, the studio behind the narrative games (Detroit: Become Human, Heavy Rain, and Beyond: Two Souls) might be working on a new title for the Star Wars series. Quantic Dream has reportedly struck a contract with Disney for a game that is already in production, according to three sources, and the company has also offered a hidden clue about it.

The rumour was considered when French YouTuber Gautoz (via VGC) claimed that Quantic Dream “will be signing with Disney” with their Sony contract being over. “It looks like they will be working on a Star Wars game,” claimed Gautoz.

The rumour grew when shortly after when on DualShockers, Tom Henderson stated that a different source “who provided overwhelming evidence that he had contacts at Quantic Dream,” and that he had been told the same thing. The game has been in development for roughly 18 months, according to Henderson. Quantic Dream also seemed to “like” Henderson’s story-related tweet. However, it has since been unliked.

Kotaku, too confirmed that it had heard the same story from a source of their own, who also revealed that Quantic Dream has been working on it for about 18 months and said about the game being open world with multiplayer.
