Ubisoft Pulls its Star Wars Sandbox; Testers Needed

A Star Wars game from Ubisoft, announced last year, is still in development. Now the studio is looking for testers.

Last January Disney announced the reactivation of Lucasfilm Games. At the time, a number of projects based on the licenses of well-known brands were announced - including a Star Wars game from Ubisoft. Now, after almost two years of silence, the French company has announced that it is looking for people who would take part in "local" tests of the game.

Currently, not much is known about it, we don't even know the title or the target hardware platforms. All that is certain is that it is being developed by Ubisoft Massive and that it is to be an open-world game with a strong emphasis on story. The role of creative director is held by Julian Geright, known for his work on the Tom Clancy's The Division series. The whole thing, meanwhile, is being developed on the Snowdrop engine.

In theory, you can apply yourself to test the new Star Wars game - just fill out this form. However, there is one important condition. You must live close to the studio's headquarters, located in the Swedish city of Malmo. This is because the tests will take place there.

It is worth bearing in mind that Ubisoft Massive, developer of the aforementioned game, currently has its hands full. The studio also continues to develop The Division 2 and work on Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. The latter title is scheduled to debut next year on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
