For the past few weeks, and really the past decade, Star Wars gamers having been getting hyped about Star Wars Battlefront, which is being done by EA's Swedish developer DICE slated for release on November 17th. But Battlefront is far from the only Star Wars video game currently in development. Last year we learned that another of EA's development companies, Visceral, is working on a Star Wars game of their own, which is rumored to be focused on Han Solo. Amy Hennig, who is the creative director on the game, and Todd Stashwick, co-writer of the game, have teased their involvement in the project several times on social media. A recent photo shared by Stashwick on Instagram, which shows him with Hennig surrounded by various Star Wars collectibles, has led to more speculation about what exactly the two are working on. You can check that out below:
The Han Solo Black Series action figure, along with Stashwick's "I'll be your scoundrel" T-shirt seem to hint that the earlier rumors may very well be true, and Visceral could indeed be working on a Han Solo game. The folks at Star Wars 7 News chimed in as well, sighting inside sources that claim that the game will be a third person action game featuring Han Solo smuggling and "something going on with bounty hunters". They also add that it being built on the cryengine and could incorporate some early concepts from the canceled Star Wars 1313 game. The suggest that the first footage from this game will premiere at this year's E3 in Los Angeles. coming up June 16th - 18th. If that is true, we're a little over a month away from finally see what Hennig and Stashwick have been up to.
