Did the Star Wars: Republic Commando sequel get leaked?

Star Wars: Republic Commando 
was a squad-based shooter game set in the Star Wars universe and, more specifically, the Clone Wars. It’s been 11 years since the game was released on PC and Xbox, but if what a certain Reddit user says is true, then we may see the sequel revealed at this year’s E3.

On the Star Wars Leaks subreddit, an anonymous user claims to have knowledge for the sequel to Republic Commando titled Star Wars: Imperial Commando. The user claims to know about all this because they’re “involved in the process of creating the ARG (Alternate Reality Game) which will require a smartphone (for an app), the camera and a LOT of knowledge of the SW-Universe.” They also claim there will be a website for the game that will feature a countdown leading up to EA’s E3 Press Conference.

Here are some bullet-points from the post itself:

“Release will be November 2017.
It will be released for Microsoft Xbox One, Sony PlayStation 4, Nintendo NX and PC.
No surprise: The engine will be FrostBite. SW:IC will use FrostBite 4.
Main focus will be on the campaign, but it will have an multiplayer. CoD like (small maps, fast paced, etc)
The biggest feature: Coop! SW:IC will deliver the best experience when played by 4 players!
Each player has unique gadgets and features. The leader (RC-1138) can give orders to the others.
The HUD and the helmet-view will even be more important than in Republic Commando.
There will be vehicles, only in some few parts of the game (Halo-like).
Environment will mostly be destructible and take effect on the world (Shoot some glass in space= everything will get soaked out)
Since its mostly an storydriven game, it will have a fuckin huge campaign and a lot of planets of the universe (+20hours).
There will be an app, that can be used as second screen (like the fallout 4 pippoy) for gadgets/weapons/radar”

Frostbite 4? A companion app? NX? The user’s final claim was that it will be revealed this month. While this is all exciting, keep in mind that this Reddit user might just have a lot of time on their hands and wants to use it to mess with us. I guess we’ll find out sooner rather than later if the long-awaited sequel to Star Wars: Republic Commando is more than just a myth.

l love to play games and write stuff about them. I can't play something and not tell anyone how I feel about it. Call it a sickness, because it is.
