Star Wars dog fighting game Star Wars: Attack Squadrons has been cancelled by Disney.

Star Wars dog fighting game Star Wars: Attack Squadrons has been cancelled by Disney.

Announced in late 2013, Star Wars: Attack Squadrons was to be a free-to-play browser based space combat game developed by Area 52 Games and published by Disney Mobile. A closed beta in North America started in January, but yesterday, the official Star Wars: Attack Squadrons website posted the following message:

We want to thank all of the fans who participated in the closed beta of Star Wars: Attack Squadrons. After much consideration, we have decided to cease development so that we can focus on other Star Wars game experiences. We truly appreciate the time you spent engaging in the beta.

What “other Star Wars game experiences” that the post is referring to is anyone’s guess, as there are several that have been announced and any number of unannounced Star Wars games.

What are your thoughts? Did you get to play the beta? Let us know in the comments below!
