All info regarding the release of Star Wars Squadrons on the new PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles!
Star Wars: Squadrons may not be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X. The new Star Wars themed video game is developed by Motive Studios and published by Electronic Arts. And will be the first Star Wars game to follow the incredible success of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Star Wars: Squadrons is also clearly a spiritual successor to Star Wars: Rogue Squadron. This means that the expectations of the players have already been set very high.
The new game will allow players to assume the role of fighter pilot. Giving them the ability to control ships on the rebel and Empire sides. It will also include a solo story that will explore what’s going on in the universe of Star Wars after the Battle of Endor. As well as the destruction of the death star, while passing from one point of view to the other of the pilots of each camp at war.
After the announcement of the Star Wars: Squadrons Released this fall, many questions have been raised about its availability on new generation consoles. The Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 should be out by the holidays this year. And since the Star Wars: Squadrons release date seems to coincide perfectly. Some players expect the title to be immediately available on next generation consoles. But for now, that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Will Star Wars: Squadrons be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X?
For now, the Star Wars: Squadrons Released has only been confirmed on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. And its official launch is scheduled for October 2, 2020. Given the game’s release date, it’s no surprise that it hasn’t been confirmed for next-generation platforms yet. The next-gen consoles themselves, however, do not yet have an official release date. Although Sony and Microsoft have confirmed that they will be on the market before the holiday season.
A release in November is therefore most likely. Likewise, many other highly anticipated games are coming out at the end of the latest generation of consoles. Without it being known if and when they will be accessible on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. For example, The Last of Us 2 released on June 19, and even if the game is sure to be a big hit like the original. It will initially be released only on consoles of this generation.
Even if a release on PS5 and Xbox Series X is likely for games like The Last Of Us 2 or Star Wars: Squadrons. Players probably won’t be able to play it on the next generation consoles for a while. Although this may seem annoying for players who want to buy new generation consoles as soon as they are released. It seems appropriate to end the latest generation with games that have excellent graphics and exciting gameplay elements.
If the developers were eager to release the games on the next generation consoles. It could have looked like a desperate attempt to simply follow industry trends. And in doing so, it could have compromised the overall quality of the game. It is better to wait for a perfect end product than to rush with disappointing results. Star Wars: Squadrons, in particular, has the potential to be one of the last games released specifically for PS4 and Xbox One before the new console arrives. Which will give it a special place in history.
Sony has promised to host several other revealing events during the summer. And players will likely receive more details about the games worn and developed for the PS5. So even if Star Wars: Squadrons will not be immediately playable on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, players still have a long way to go.
