As seen on the teaser trailer, there is nothing that suggests the supported platforms, but it’s evident that being the game announced after Xbox acquired Bethesda, the game will only launch on the Xbox ecosystem.
MachineGames is a Swedish game development studio, they are the team behind the Nazi-killing fest Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. However, the project will be overseen by Bethesda and LucasFilm Games.
LucasFilm Games is expected to be more aggressive in the management of its IPs, especially after the disappointing results of the games produced by EA on the Star Wars franchise in the last decade.
Working hand-in-hand with world-class studios, Lucasfilm Games creates interactive and immersive experiences that help extend the narrative of the Star Wars galaxy for fans around the world.
With titles on console, PC, and mobile, Lucasfilm Games pushes the boundaries of gaming and AR/VR experiences with engaging storytelling, stunning graphics, and innovative gameplay.
