The galaxy after the Empire
Star Wars: Hunters is set after the fall of the Galactic Empire, which means that it takes place after the events narrated in Return of the Jedi. Players will fight in the arena in locations inspired by the Stat Wars settings. We will be able to incarnate a bounty hunter and manage heroes of the Rebellion, as well as control former members of Palpatine’s hosts.
Lucasfilm Games works on various projects in collaboration with other studios. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic will return in remake form as a temporary PS5 and PC exclusive, while EA is developing a sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Ubisoft, for its part, has commissioned Massive, the creators of The Division, an open world title that has not yet been shown. On the other hand, MachineGames (Bethesda) is the studio chosen to bring Indiana Jones back to video games.
