Although they claim they’ve listened to all of the feedback they’ve recieved, they’re not getting into specifics right now, but part of the trailer shows a man in a PSVR headset flying an X-wing, so there’s definitely something there.

In 2018 we’ll see Visceral’s Star Wars action game, developed with Amy Hennig. Beyond that, Respawn Entertainment are making a 3rd person action adventure game that takes place ina timeline that hasn’t yet been explored in EA’s Star Wars titles.
