An untitled video game is currently in development at Visceral Games.
The game will take place between the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, with at least part of it taking place in Mos Eisley. The game's plot will focus on more than one core character, and the plot will primarily focus on new characters.
On May 6, 2013, the game was confirmed to be in production when Electronic Arts (parent company of Visceral Games) and The Walt Disney Company signed an agreement allowing Electronic Arts and its subsidiaries to create Star Wars games under a new license. The project will be released in 2018.
On April 3, 2014, it was confirmed that Amy Hennig joined the project as creative director. Later that month, it was revealed that Todd Stashwick would write the game's storyline with Hennig. The two have previously worked together on games in the Uncharted series. In June 2014, Scott Warner joined the project as game director. In July 2015, Jade Raymond announced her new EA subsidiary Motive Studios would be working on the game alongside the developers at Visceral Games.
