There are limited details about the game so far, though Gerighty shared with Ubisoft News that the project will be a departure from his previous work like action role-playing game The Division. The team, he said, is looking to create something "totally different from what we have done in the past, upping the bar for the industry."
"First, we want to make it a unique game in the saga with a captivating story and set of characters that players can relate to and connect with," Gerighty said. "We want to take what is familiar and resonant about Star Wars and tell the stories of new characters who have their own motivations and stakes."
long overdue, if you ask me ... the world-building potential of the star wars universe has been crying out for the sandbox treatment
