Star Wars: Attack Squadrons burns up in beta

, | News

Beam me up Han! The free-to-play multiplayer space combat game, Star Wars: Attack Squadrons, has been scuttled. A notice on the official website breaks the bad news to fans of spending money who were looking forward to purchasing tiger-stripe paint jobs for their X-Wings and Gunstars.

We want to thank all of the fans who participated in the closed beta of Star Wars: Attack Squadrons.

After much consideration, we have decided to cease development so that we can focus on other
Star Wars game experiences. We truly appreciate the time you spent engaging in the beta.

Star Wars: Attack Squadrons was announced in December shortly after Disney purchased LucasArts and the Star Wars property. It is unknown what project developer Area 52 Games will be moving to next.
