Visceral’s untitled Star Wars game – rumored to be known as “Project Ragtag” internally – is currently a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, nestled inside an otherworldly enigma. And isn’t that exciting?
From Lucasfilm’s booming movie business to spinoff animated series in the vein of Forces of Destiny, Star Wars is a franchise that is perpetually exposed to the prying eyes of the Internet, resulting in a situation in which creators struggle to keep a lid on their stories of a galaxy far, far away.
When it comes to Visceral Games though, the former Dead Space developer has managed to keep its third-person title in the dark, even going so far as to skip E3 2017 to double down on development. A 2018 release window has been floated in the past, though neither Visceral nor EA are ready to commit to anything concrete.
While we await official confirmation on that front, Making Star Wars has uncovered a slew of rumors regarding Visceral’s Star Wars and how players will purportedly fight alongside a gunslinger companion named Robie Mattox. Said to be voiced by Natalie Morales, known for her roles in The Grinder and hit sitcom Parks and Recreation, this story trinket comes only a week after MSS claimed that the game’s protagonist will be an Alderaan native and drifter called Dodger, and the outlet believes that Robie Mattox has been earmarked for the potential sequel.
Not unlike Han Solo, Dodger is a character who stumbles into the galaxy’s criminal underworld and begins working with Jabba the Hutt. Robie Mattox, on the other hand, is said to be one of the few people in the galaxy that Dodger trusts, and it’ll be interesting to discover how Visceral plans to balance the two characters come 2018 – you know, assuming Making Star Wars is on point with this latest rumor. Perhaps former Naughty Dog dev Amy Hennig will call upon her experience on the Uncharted series? We’ll find out soon enough.
