Quantic Dream's Star Wars Eclipse may not even have entered real production yet, as the studio is suffering from major engine problems, according to rumors circulating online.
During the Sacred Symbol's podcast, host Colin Moriarty also revealed some information on the game's story, verified by Tom Henderson as posted on Insider Gaming. According to the new information, the game is apparently not even really in production yet, and the leaked story details are a controlled leak to gauge community reactions and help the studio recruit more developers.
Apparently, Star Wars Eclipse's main character will be called Sarah, a member of a humanoid race that has never appeared before in the Star Wars universe called The Zaraan. This race is at the head of a military-focused empire whose balance is disrupted by Sarah's marriage to Xendo, as the two are part of factions who have very different views, the first a more aggressive, the second a softer. The entire game will revolve around their relationship, it is said.
Ever since its announcement, it was clear that we wouldn't be seeing Star Wars Eclipse anytime soon. Earlier this year, the insider who revealed the game before its official announcement said that development was proceeding better than expected, which contradicts today's report.
