Is Star Wars Eclipse Doomed Before Release?


We have been hearing some incoming chatter coming across our various Imperial spies around the Outer Rim. Normally we would not disseminate this information to the denizens of the New Republic because we are unsure of the accuracy of the transmissions. However, we want to make sure that all information is on the table, so that you are not caught unaware in the galactic wilds! Remember to take everything below with a nice big helping of salt!

Back in December, Lucasfilm released an epic trailer for the upcoming video game Star Wars Eclipse by Quantic Dream. Flash-forward a couple of months and a new report from the website xfire seemingly reveals that all is not well with the game.

It seems that staffing shortages are creating a huge problem for the game developer. According to xfire, when a trailer like this is released a few years in advance of the game, it is typically to attract talent to come work on the title. Even though the trailer looks spectacular, it does not seem to be having the effect that the studio was hoping it would.

Couple that with a few more things the xfire dug up, and you have an interesting scenario playing out for the game. I highly suggest heading over to xfire and reading through all the detective work they did, describing why the game might be in trouble.

In any case, rewatch the awesome trailer above, and then leave your thoughts in the comment section concerning this unfavorable news.
