Anyone can die in a teased official Star Wars game. The Star Wars Eclipse game from Quantic Dream will reportedly have no game overscreen if it ever gets to ship.

Quantic Dream for those that don’t know is well-known for choose-your-own-adventure games such as Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human, where protagonists in the game can die along the way. And quite apparently, both Disney and Lucasfilm have signed off on that very idea for its upcoming Star Wars game, Star Wars Eclipse.

What Quantic Dream Marketing VP Has To Say About Recent Developments

“There’s no game over. Anyone can die, anything can happen, and the story sort of continues,” Quantic Dream marketing VP Lisa Pendse revealed to IGN at the just concluded 2023 Tokyo Game Show.

“One of the big focuses we’ve had when we announced Star Wars Eclipse was to make sure it was clear that this is actually an action-adventure game that has all of the elements that you would come to expect and want from a Quantic Dream title, which is intricately branching narratives, multiple playable characters,” she said to the publication.

The Anyone Can Die Endings of Quantic Dreams Are Really Bad

Let’s be real: Quantic Dream’s “anyone can die” bad endings are quite really bad. Gruesome, depressing, or if it is that you get to play the early Indigo Prophecy / Fahrenheit’s mini-endings back to back to back, then it’s just kind of amusing.

One question to ask here is this, would Disney really sign off on those vibes for its feel-good Star Wars brand? Well, I have really got to admit that it has been getting more flexible lately: Star Wars Jedi: Survivor finally got to feature lightsabers that can actually dismember stormtroopers after many decades of game developers reportedly shipping blunt light bats. (There was however the occasional cheat code.) The Disney Plus series Andor on the other hand was a surprisingly mature and well-written show by its close, and you may as well recall the movie Rogue One doesn’t really or exactly have a happy ending…

Will the Game Come To Fruition?

But Pendse also revealed to IGN that the Quantic Dream game in question is still just “simmering,” with no real kind of update to share since its announcement back in 2021, and the Star Wars franchise as you should know has a rich and buoyant history of canceled video games.
