New Star Wars franchise reveal next week

A new Star Wars game in on its way indeed, and it’s going to be the “newest game franchise in the Star Wars universe.”

That rules out Battlefront III then.

The game will be named and detailed somewhat next week, on May 31, during Spike TV’s pre-E3 show. Actual gameplay will be held back for the network’s “E3 All Access Live” special though. Catch that on June 4 at 10:00 pm ET/7:00 pm PT.

What to expect? Utter magnificence, if you’re to believe the special’s host Geoff Keighley: “I am blown away by both the caliber of the team on this project and their bold vision for this new Star Wars title. I can’t wait to introduce our viewers to this game and show off the footage that left my jaw on the floor when I first saw it.”
