Quantic Dream’s upcoming title Star Wars Eclipse looks to still be a long way from launching, with a new report claiming that the developer is aiming for a 2026 release.
According to a report from Insider Gaming, the highly anticipated Star Wars title that was revealed back in 2021 is internally “targeting a tentative 2026 release date,” though it’s thought that further delays are possible.
The report cites the same anonymous source that revealed that Quantic Dream was to be acquired by Netease a full six months prior to the official statement dropping. According to this source, the ongoing allegations of sexual harassment and crunch culture within Quantic Dream are making it difficult to hire staff for the project. That, combined with the huge scope of Eclipse, has pushed the planned release back significantly.
For those unaware, Star Wars Eclipse is said to be an action-adventure game set during the High Republic era that will feature multiple playable characters and a branching storyline. This elevator pitch sounds on-brand for Quantic Dream, as they are the team behind Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls and, most recently, Detroit: Become Human.
