The New EA Star Wars Game is Titled ‘Star Wars: Squadrons’

OOPS! Looks like someone over at Microsoft made a little mistake. Today the US Xbox site accidentally published a pre-order banner for an upcoming Star Wars game titled Star Wars: Squadrons…before EA announced it:

This is the “Project Maverick” we’ve been hearing about. Maverick of course is a Top Gun reference, which fits a game set around space combat. It looks like we’ll be having an official announcement soon, although the rumors say it’ll have a very short single-player campaign with a focus on multi-player space battles. It’s developed by EA Motive for PC and consoles and was expected to debut on July 18th at EA’s event but that might change due to Microsoft leaking it.
