2015 seems to be the year that will revitalize the mainstream Star Wars franchise both in theaters and the gaming world. DICE is currently working on a new Star Wars: Battlefront, while both Visceral and Bioware are developing Star Wars related projects of their own.
While we don’t know much of anything regarding any of the upcoming Star Wars titles, Visceral Games’ Amy Henning and Todd Stashwick both seem to be quite excited about what they’re working on. Both Stashwick and Henning have responded to a few Twitter users regarding their upcoming game at Visceral, which Henning says she hopes to show off soon.

Stashwick responded to another Twitter user noting that the game they’re making is “something very cool” and a game that he personally would like to play himself. After all, if you’re not excited to play the game you’re working on, it would be a concern, so it’s good to hear their excitement for the project and that it’s coming along well.
E3 isn’t too far off now, and while we already know we’ll be seeing Star Wars: Battlefront this year, it’ll be interesting to see if Visceral’s Star Wars game will be revealed as well. We’re still secretly hoping it’s a Star Wars 1313 revival, but who knows. At least with Stashwick and Henning on board with the project, we can expect a well-written storyline to say the least.
