Star Wars: Squadrons Briefly Appears on the Xbox Home Page

It appears a new Star Wars game has leaked a little early, based on a large advertisement that appeared on the official Xbox website today. The splash image has since been removed, but not before the internet noticed.

Earlier today, Gematsu and others noticed that a new and unannounced Star Wars game was being advertised on the official Xbox website. That image was quickly removed. Before it was taken down, Kotaku visited the page and took a screenshot of it.

EA has officially announced Star Wars: Squadrons and will be releasing a trailer for the game Monday, June 15th where we will probably see some spaceships and squadrons.

Based on the imagery in the leaked artwork, Star Wars: Squadrons appears to be focused on space combat and will be set in or near the original trilogy era of the franchise. Considering how many people loved the dogfighting and spaceships in Battlefront II and how popular previous X-Wing and TIE fighter games have been, it seems like a good option for the next EA-published Star Wars game.
