The game is being developed by first-time developer Area 52 Games, and looks to be a spiritual successor to the Nintendo 64 Rogue Squadron series. Players will be able to pilot classic Star Wars ships such as the X-Wing or TIE Interceptor. Disney also promises that players will be able to customize their ships. The game will be centered around multiplayer dogfights of up to 16 players, and will take place in "iconic Star Wars locations."

The game will be released for PC sometime in 2014.
