PostSubject: RUMOUR: Star Wars: Imperial Commando releasing in 2017?   Wed Feb 03, 2016 7:39 pm

So, I've just been surfing the web today, and I noticed something interesting. This is only a rumour, so don't get excited JUST yet, since it could be fake.

A Reddit user by the name of Alpha_Cukie has supposedly leaked details about Star Wars: Imperial Commando, a sequel to the 2005 cult hit Star Wars: Republic Commando. He claims to be working on an ARG site that would go live this month, with the game getting fully revealed at E3 2016 in June. Another thing to note that it's said to being worked on by a known studio in Austin.



Here's the alleged details.


- Coming out in November 2017.

- Releasing on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo's NX system.

- Will run on Frostbite 4.

- Will feature co-op up to 4 players.

- Will have a massive focus on campaign, with a smaller multiplayer mode similar to Call of Duty (Small maps and fast paced)

- Each player will have unique gadgets and features. Example: RC-1138 can give commands.

- The HUD and helmet view will be more important than in RC.

- Environments will mostly be destructible and will effect the world.

- It supposedly has a 20+ hour campaign with many planets to explore, due to the large focus on the story.

- There will be an app that will work similar to Fallout 4's Pip-Boy companion.

- No information on DLC at the time.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nothing much I can say, aside to advise you to take this with a pinch of salt. You can view the full Reddit post https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWarsLeaks/comments/42n69c/star_wars_imperial_commando_arg_reveal_incoming/?sort=new

Whould be nice if it's true. Republic commando was one of the best games in SW Lore, if not the best (poor jedi didn't get the game of quality the deserve...)

If this is true then I am happy to play this game in future.
Although better than Republic Commando has nothing to do (this is my opinion)

I doubt its real info, people have talked about "imperial Commando" for awhile. Would be great if it was though. Personally I would prefer another Jedi knight game. Jedi knight outcast/academy were the best star wars games.

A sequel to RC seems plausible, since the first game is still technically canon - where as TFA, JK2, etc are EU and therefore don't really exist as far as Disney is concerned.

Its a shame that the EU got flushed the way it did. Yeah, a lot of it was a bloated mess, and I get that they needed to do their own thing with Luke/Han etc... but there were still some great characters, like Kyle Katarn and Admiral Thrawn.

would be great to see a sequel of rc. its one of my favorite sw games i have played also i enjoyed the books that are releated to the game. i have not much read of the old canon eu exept a handfull of books maybe so i am not that sad that they have cancled it. but i have read the thrawn triology and from what i have heared the makers of sw rebels want to bring thrawn back in season three of their show so he would be canon again. anyways, a second rc game would be awesome... imagine todays technologie in a sw game like rc... a dream would come true.

This is awesome if true. I kinda want them to go down the TIE Fighter route in the way the Empire was portrayed (more morally grey, most of them are just keeping the peace and all that.)

Aw man, really? Sort of disappointing to me. I mean, I liked Rebels for what it is, but I just don't see them doing him any justice. Why not Tarkin? He was quite good in Clone Wars, I thought. And the Thrawn trilogy could work in the new canon with only a few tweaks, although I don't know what they'd do with Mara Jade in that case.

As much as I want this, it's all probably fake.

There's a few inconsistencies in the post and this is Reddit we're talking about....

If is not a fake I will be impatient to play this game ! I hope isn't a fake...
But Star Wars : Republic Commando was a very good game.

Peace.

It would be great to have a sequel to RC.

I first always was off the opinion that any SW game without Jedi/Sith is not a SW game.
Yet RC was so freaking amazing, both the stories and characters where great.

Though how on earth they going to explain where Sev aka Delta 07 was?

I would love to haven a Star Wars Open World game in the style of Fallout.

OK, here's five reasons why I think this is fake.

1. The mention of the NX - Nintendo and EA haven't really had a great relationship, with no support for the Wii U from EA. It also doesn't help that Nintendo hasn't released the specifics for the console.

2. "Known studio in Austin" - I don't know ANY studio that works in Austin, aside from BioWare Austin. I'd be surprised if they were the developer, because FPS games isn't really their thing, and they're also busy supporting The Old Republic and working on Mass Effect: Andromeda.

3. Frostbite 4 - This may be possible at E3, when the next Battlefield is shown off, but I think right now is too soon for that engine to even be mentioned.

4. Inconsistencies - Quite a few problems here. The leaker mentioned that Visceral's game will be out this year, but it's recently been said that their game is still a few years away. As for the June 15th reveal... EA has their press conference on the 12th and not the 15th, which is a Wednesday.

5. The first game is NOT canon - We can blame Disney for this. They had pretty much said that all SW games are part of the Legends series and not canon. I know that Delta Squad made an appearance in TCW (which makes them canon, thank God), but just because the characters are canon, doesn't mean that the game is. It is entirely possible that they could re-canonize the game with mentions and stuff, but I wouldn't hold my breath.


If this DOES end up becoming true, then I will cross my fingers for it to be good, as RC is one of my favourite games of all time! I'm not holding my breath though. Sooner or later, EA is either going to debunk this, or offer no comment.

I'm gonna take this rumor with a grain of salt. But a part of me wants to believe. I can see the RC being canon because it didn't really interfere with the Trilogies. Also Republic Commando on Frostbite Engine would be amazing. I hope to find out more in the future, I'm really hoping this isn't a hoax.

It'd be really nice to see another game like RC so if it's legit I'd be really looking forward to it.

OK...

So, the leaker said at the time that the ARG would go live in early February. Today is the 16th, so it's now mid-February, and the ARG hasn't surfaced at all.

I'm afraid to admit it, since I loved RC, but this is complete bullshit now. Damn.....
