Star Wars: Attack Squadrons, which entered into the closed beta this January has been cancelled by Disney.
The announcement of cancellation was made on game’s official Facebook page:
We want to thank all of the fans who participated in the closed beta of Star Wars: Attack Squadrons.
After much consideration, we have decided to cease development so that we can focus on other Star Wars game experiences.
We truly appreciate the time you spent engaging in the beta.
Star Wars: Attack Squadrons was first announced in December last year to be a free to play game developed by Area 52 Games.
The game focused on the multiplayer aspect only and featured a team-based combat in which you had to coordinate with your team member in order to go against the opposition.
The cancellation of Star Wars: Attack Squadrons might not be such a huge problem for the fans of Star Wars, as EA is looking to develop a new Star Wars game and DICE has already announced its upcoming title Star Wars: Battlefront, which might be shown at upcoming E3.
Star Wars is a huge brand and living up to the expectations of the fans is not an easy thing to do for any developer, but we hope that upcoming games based on the universe live up to the hype and anticipation.
Are you disappointed with the cancellation of the Star Wars: Attack Squadrons?
