Visceral Games’ upcoming “Star Wars” game did not make an appearance at this year’s E3. Here’s why.

Unfortunately, fans who waited for Visceral Games to drop an official teaser for its upcoming “Star Wars” title at this year’s E3 ended up disappointed. The EA Play livestream has ended, and the highly anticipated game was a no-show. When someone asked the project’s creative director, Amy Hennig, about the non-appearance of a teaser at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the latter straightforwardly explained the reason why.

In a response to a question on why she and Todd Stashwick weren’t present at the big event to tease fans who are anticipating the new “Star Wars” game, Hennig tweeted: “It’s #Battlefront2’s year - very proud of our friends at DICE and Motive!” She also assured the fan that they are currently busy working on the project. “We’re still hard at work on our game, though, have no fear…”

Stashwick, who is Hennig’s co-writer in the project, reiterated the same message on the social networking site when he responded to another fan. “DICE and Motive have something great w/ #Battlefront2. It’s their time. We will ave our day in the twin suns. No fear. It will be glorious,” Stashwick tweeted.

The two were right though. “Star Wars: Battlefront II” was the center of attention during the EA Play 2017 event. A large portion of the event was dedicated to the upcoming action shooter video game that’s slated for release on Nov. 17, 2017, as per Neowin. Of course, EA also presented many other titles during its press briefing, namely: “FIFA 18,” “Madden 18,” “NBA Live 18,” “Need for Speed Payback,” “Anthem” and “A Way Out.”

Very little is known about the “Star Wars” project of Visceral Games. Last year, a quick 15-second footage was leaked online and was also presented as part of the “Star Wars” projects the different EA teams are working on. Another known fact about the game is Hennig, Stashwick and the story team at Lucasfilm are penning its storyline, according to VG 24/7.

Hennig is known for being the creative director of the first three “Uncharted” games at Naughty Dog. However, she left the studio three years ago to join Visceral Games and take the helm over the still untitled “Star Wars” project. Interestingly, Nolan North, who is a friend of Hennig’s and is the one who played Nathan Drake in “Uncharted,” told Polygon that the upcoming game will have “the style of ‘Uncharted.’”

Meanwhile, another “Star Wars” game is in the works under the tutelage of Stig Asmussen at Respawn Entertainment. Not much is known about the project as well. The “Titanfall” developer just stated before that the game will offer a “new adventure,” but it also intends to “respect the ‘Star Wars’ legacy at all times.” It is also said to be a third-person action-adventure game.

For now though, fans of the “Star Wars” franchise can set their sights on EA DICE and Motive Studios’ “Battlefront 2,” which is releasing for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC later this year.
