The Star Wars license was exclusive to EA for a good while there, but Disney has been handing it out to several other developers across the industry in recent months, suggesting a different approach to developing Star Wars titles. If a new rumour is to be believed, it seems they’ve tapped up another studio to make a new game in the series- though the combination might surprise you.

Noted insider Tom Henderson’s Twitter activity seems to be suggesting that French studio Quantic Dream, developer of the likes of Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human, is working on a Star Wars title. Henderson uploaded an image showing lightsabers superimposed over a scene from Detroit: Become Human. Shortly afterward, he liked a number of replies asking if a Quantic Dream Star Wars title was what he was hinting at- including one that directly mentioned the pattern of his liked tweets, and one that specifically asked him to like the tweet if Quantic Dream is indeed working on a Star Wars game.

Of course, this is by no means an official confirmation- it’s not exactly crystal clear even as leaks go. If it is accurate though, Quantic Dream and Star Wars would be a curious combination, and it would be interesting to see if the hypothetical game would be similar in style and gameplay to the studio’s previous works or take on an entirely new approach.

Quantic Dream has, of course, had an eventful few years, first having gone multiplatform following the launch of Detroit: Become Human, and then taking their first steps forward into self-publishing plans. More importantly, the studio has been under fire for a long time now, owing to allegations of major issues at their workplace, which even led to a lawsuit.

Meanwhile, regardless of whether or not this game is real, Star Wars fans have plenty else to look forward to between Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – RemakeUbisoft Massive’s open world Star Wars game, and that inevitable sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Orderwhenever that comes out (or even announced).
