Recent domain registrations by Disney have had the Star Wars gaming community absolutely buzzing lately. When a company like Disney opts to register domain names like StarWarsAttackSquadrons.com, AttackSquadrons.com, and StarWarsSquads.org, you know itâs unlikely to be a coincidence. In fact, Disney has recently registered at least 25 Star Wars-related domain names, including the following:
These were moved to Disneyâs DNS servers on August 16th, 2013, making things very interesting indeed. Considering that earlier this year an agreement was reached between Disney and EA to produce new Star Wars games, itâs not hard to put together a good guess as to what they have cooking in the Disney kitchen. Companies have adopted similar strategies in the past for big name releases, so itâs looking very likely that Attack Squadrons (or a variation thereof) will be a hotly anticipated game title in the very near future.
New Game, Old Name
So what kind of game can we expect? This is where expert and fanboy alike can start having fun, as itâs basically anyoneâs guess. Itâs not a straightforward question to answer, as the potential title can point to several different directions. Spinoffs or follow-ups to the popular X-Wing space combat simulator series would certainly be popular, or perhaps we can look forward to a sequel to the classic Rogue Squadron series? We already have Star Wars: Battlefront being developed by EA Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment (EA DICE) in Sweden and due for a release in 2015, so itâs likely that the company wants a bigger slice of the pie around the time that the new Star Wars movies are due to be released.
Of course, the registration of these domains does not absolutely guarantee a new Star Wars title bearing a similar name. Disney could just be playing it safe by registering domain names in order to secure potential future projects that may never actually happen. It is, after all, much cheaper to register new domain names (less than $15 each) than to buy them from domain brokers.
However, the thought of eventually playing Attack Squadrons is nevertheless a tantalizing proposition that will leave gamers excited. Disney and EA are certain to release a couple of big-name titles in the next few years, so it would not surprise us to see Attack Squadrons hit the shelves sometime in 2015.
