New Star Wars Game Might Be Revealed By Disney In December

Disney is potentially teasing a new Star Wars video game or a game-related product as it kicks off a new wave of official products ahead of the holiday season. Despite having a rough start with EA’s middling Star Wars Battlefront reboot and its divisive sequel, Disney's Star Wars game library has grown in size and reputation after the commercial success of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and positive critical reception of Star Wars Squadrons.      

This steady release of games isn't slowing down anytime soon, as EA and developer Respawn Entertainment already confirmed a Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order sequel is in the works, continuing the journey of Cal Kestis prior to the original Star Wars trilogy's events. Additionally, Aspyr Media is working on a current-gen remake of Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic, which was revealed as a PlayStation 5 console exclusive. Now, Disney could be teasing yet another new Star Wars title as part of a 2021 holiday merchandise blowout.

Disney and Lucasfilm announced "Bring Home the Bounty" in a Star Wars blog post, a new promotional campaign for Star Wars toys, books, and other products, with one being revealed every Tuesday until the end of the year. A promotional image for “Bring Home The Bounty” features several icons corresponding to things like Lucasfilm’s 50th anniversary and the upcoming Disney+ series The Book Of Boba Fett. One in particular, marked for December 14, depicts a video game controller, presumably signaling a Star Wars game-related product will be revealed that day. It's too early to tell, but it could be more merchandise, special in-game content for an existing game, or a new Star Wars game altogether.

In January, Lucasfilm announced the end its exclusive game publishing deal with EA, allowing the studio to partnering with Ubisoft on a new open-world Star Wars game. Recent rumors suggest that Detroit: Become Human developer Quantic Dream is working on a mysterious Star Wars title, though this information hasn’t been verified or officially confirmed yet.       

Judging by the enticing icons included in Disney’s “Bring Home The Bounty” lineup, there's plenty of Star Wars merch to look forward to during the remainder of 2021. With luck, a new licensed video game or content may be part of the celebration. Whether it’s a closer look at an already announced Star Wars game or the reveal of yet another title bearing the franchise's weighty name, Disney will reveal what can be expected for certain on December 14.
