Star Wars Eclipse release stretches far-far away

Talking about his recent tweets, then Henderson mentioned the details he got about the game so far. In his follow-up tweet, he claimed that Star Wars Eclipse will not arrive anytime sooner. In fact, it’s now very far away from a possible launch.

“Eclipse is believed to be around 3-4 years away MINIMUM,” he wrote. Mentioning the reason, he said that developer Quantic Dream is currently going through a tough phase as it is running out of staff members; the company is struggling to hire new employees. And as per Henderson, it may be due to a controversy from 2019. At the moment, it has “60+ job openings” for its Quantic Dream Paris 7 and 9 in Montreal.

Moreover, he also stated that the internal QD engine is also not capable enough for an open-world title. It implies that the upcoming Star Wars game won’t be an open-world project.
