Electronic Arts' next Star Wars installment is Star Wars: Squadrons.
While the game hadn't been formally announced - it was widely speculated that official word was likely to come at or around EA Play, the publisher/developer's annual E3 event on 18 June - a leaked image of artwork accidentally posted on the official Xbox website has forced EA's hand into making a reveal ahead of schedule.
This is rumoured to be the previously leaked game codenamed Star Wars: Project Maverick and it will now be formally revealed on Monday, 15 June, 2020, according to an official tweet from Electronic Arts' Star Wars Twitter account. It also included the leaked artwork which depicts a Rebel and Imperial TIE Fighter pilot standing back-to-back, and Empire and Rebellion starfighters, which isn't too dissimilar to the prior leaked image scraped from the PlayStation Network.

According to Venture Beat which has spoken to "sources familiar with the game's production", Star Wars: Squadrons is reportedly "an aerial/space combat game about piloting ships in head-to-head battles".
While a single-player campaign is rumoured to be included, VB reports that "the main focus for Squadrons is on the multiplayer. The idea is to get players fighting against each other in team battles featuring iconic Star Wars vessels". It is being developed by EA's Motive studio and comes hot on the heels of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
