Xfire has dropped a new report that details some early trouble for Quantic Dream and its Star Wars Eclipse title, which was shown off towards the end of 2021.
The trailer for it definitely was stunning, and it more than generated buzz around the title, but some of the buzz was negative due to allegations and legal cases Quantic’s leadership has faced over the years. Apparently, the game is at least 3-4 years away, but the reason the trailer was shown so early was to try and generate interest in the development community for joining the studio and working on the game.
According to Xfire, that ploy has failed, and Quantic is still looking for over 60 positions to fill for future projects such as Star Wars Eclipse. This is why Xfire is now reporting that the release for Eclipse could very well slip all the way to 2027 or beyond.
One final detail for Xfire’s report is that Quantic may have also showed off the trailer so early to dry and drum interest in a potential buyer to acquire the studio, so there truly could be some deep rooted issues at the studio that is preventing it from acquiring the type of talent it needs to make a game as ambitious as Star Wars Eclipse.
