French YouTuber Gautoz and Tom Henderson claimed last week that Quantic Dream, the developer behind Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human, was developing a game set in the Star Wars universe. Sources with Kotaku are now saying that they’ve heard something similar.

According to one of Kotaku’s sources, Quantic Dream’s Star Wars game has been development for over a year. The source also suggests that the game will be very different from Quantic Dream’s usual titles, in that it won’t lean on QTE-type commands and play more like a traditional action game. Quantic Dream’s Star Wars game could also feature an open-world and support multiplayer.

From Kotaku’s report:

Kotaku has heard the same from a third, separate source with knowledge of the studio’s development plans. According to this individual, Quantic Dream has indeed been working on a Star Wars game for approximately a year and a half, but it won’t be the conventional type of quick-time-event-driven game we’ve come to expect from the French studio. Instead, they said, the game will have more traditional action gameplay, and possibly even open world and multiplayer elements.

Quantic Dream’s catalog includes Heavy Rain, Beyond Two Souls, and, most recently, Detroit: Become Human, a game that questions the impact of androids in society. All of these titles are notable for their branching storylines and heavy narrative emphasis.
