New LEGO Star Wars Game Reportedly in Development

According to Skywalker Sound’s supervising sound editor and sound designer Matt Wood, a new LEGO Star Wars game is reportedly in development.

As reported by Eurogamer, Wood was speaking on the Star Wars Live Show at Star Wars Celebration this weekend and passingly mentioned that a new LEGO Star Wars game was currently being worked on.

“So many things we’re doing right now, we’ve got Resistance going, Clone Wars going, we’ve got Mandalorian happening, of course Episode IX happening, there’s a LEGO Star Wars game we’re working on…” Wood said, as captured by Twitter user @WillHaddad8.

Wood, who has worked on Star Wars films since The Phantom Menace, most likely knows this project to be real, but it’s important to note that it still hasn’t been confirmed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainement or developer TT Games.

Further verifying this statement, however, is Eurogamer who has “heard word of the title from sources close to its production,” and that it is “an ambitious project.”

Eurogamer’s Tom Phililps has also heard that the game will be much more than a collection of The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker content, but that it will be an “ultimate” LEGO Star Wars game that would tell the story of the entire Saga.

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens was the last LEGO Star Wars game released, and back in 2016 we praised it and said “the story is great, the levels are dense with fun puzzles, and unlocking all of the secrets is a blast.”

If this rumor is true and the game is released around the time of Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker, it will join Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series as one of three high-profile Star Wars games for fans to look forward to in 2019.
