Update: Not long after promotional material for Star Wars: Squadrons was leaked online, EA unleashed key art for their upcoming release (shown above), and noted that an official trailer reveal will happen on Monday, June 15th at 8:00 AM Pacific Time on EA's Star Wars YouTube page. Be sure to check it out!

Original Article:

Because nothing remains a secret for too long, it appears as if the official Xbox website has leaked details pertaining to Star Wars: Squadrons, an as-of-yet unannounced aerial combat game set in the Star Wars Universe. The leak comes by way of an image for the upcoming title, which also featured a pre-order button, but I've since removed that part so as to make the art look nice and pretty. Plus, if you click the pre-order prompt, you automatically get re-directed to a page that has yet to go live.

In looking at the image and title of the game, one can only assume that Squadrons revolves around aerial combat missions set in a galaxy far, far away. The image depicts fighters on both sides of the ongoing war between the Rebels and their oppressors. Oh, and let's not ignore the fact that the art is being swarmed by TIE fighters, X-Wings, and other styles of dogfight-ready ships that are able to tear the sky like a sheet.

EA is set to host their EA Play event next week, which is where I assume the company was originally going to debut this newly-leaked Star Wars video game title.

It's been a hot minute since fans have had a proper Star Wars video game that focuses on the franchise's hot-headed pilots and slickly-designed spacecraft. In fact, the last game to spotlight this part of the Star Wars Universe was 2003's Star Wars Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike. I say that while not wholly discounting the multiplayer modes featured in EA's Star Wars Battlefront, which allowed players to take to the skies for some good old fashioned multiplayer aeronautical action.

Be sure to check out EA's presentation next week where even more details for Star Wars: Squadrons are bound to be announced.
