Remember EA Motive’s smaller-scale unusual Star Wars project? Well, from the looks of it, “Project Maverick”, could be getting a reveal next week.

Motive’s secret Star Wars project was secretly added to the official PlayStation Store back in March of this year, which revealed that the title will have some kind of multiplayer component. In addition, this leak suggested won’t support VR, thereby debunking the rumor that it would a PSVR-only title.

EA Motive received an official Twitter account yesterday, and its first tweet was followed up by a tweet from Grubb with a rather telling image – an animated gif from actor Tom Cruise in the upcoming Top-Gun sequel, “Maverick”.

Following the tweet, Jason Schreier also took to Twitter to comment on Motive’s tweet, which is said to be related to Motive’s Star Wars Project.
