There have been rumours that Star Wars Republic Commando will be releasing on Switch. Now, Aspyr has confirmed that Star Wars Republic Commando will indeed be released on Switch and on PS4, with the release date being April 6th. The remaster will be the single player portion of Star Wars Republic Commando, and it will cost $14.99. A trailer of the announcement for Star Wars Republic Commando can be seen below.
Ted Staloch, Aspyr Co-founder, said:
“Since its original launch in 2005, Republic Commando continues to be a fan-favourite Star Wars game. We’re honoured to be able work with Lucasfilm Games to bring back this beloved moment in franchise history.”
Star Wars Republic Commando was originally released in 2005 for PC and Xbox. The game was developed by LucasArts. The plot of Star Wars Republic Commando is set during The Clone Wars following on from Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Players take on the role of the Clone Commando Boss who leads Delta Squad, consisted of Scorch, Sev, and Fixer. There was a sequel in the works called Star Wars: Imperial Commando but that was later cancelled.
A few weeks ago, Embracer bought Aspyr Media. This means Embracer now has 57 internal game development studios spread across 40 countries. Many of these are smaller indie studios united under some of Embracer’s 8 publishing brands, but that’s still an incredible number. Embracer must own hundreds, if not thousands of IP’s in total, THQ Nordic alone has been snapping up old, seemingly dead IPs for many, many years. They recently snapped up Little Nightmares creators Tarsier Studios.
