The fantasy action game provoked many more questions than it answered, but it seems Square Enix is now ready to start answering some of those questions. The big one is that Forspoken is now confirmed for a spring 2022 release.



Forspoken Features Writers From Star Wars Rogue One and Uncharted

Forspoken has four prominent writers putting the game's story together, two of whom have written familiar epic stories in the past.


Further backing up this writing team is Gary Whitta, famous for several book and film writing credits. Foremost among these is Star Wars: Rogue One, one of the most successful standalone Star Wars films to date. More importantly, it contains the blend of magic and real world solidity that Forspoken is showing off, playing up the mystical nature of the Force and ensuring the story's pacing remains urgent and on point throughout. Hopefully Forspoken will continue to showcasing his strengths as a writer.
