The rumor of Star Wars: Republic Commando coming to Switch popped up a couple weeks back, and today the news was confirmed. The game is set to launch on April 6th, 2021, and in an interview on StarWars.com, Lucasfilm Games executive producer Matt Fillbrandt shared his excitement for the upcoming port.
It’s a very rewarding feeling to see it have such a strong following all these years later and to be a part of releasing it again. It was originally only released on Xbox and PC, so to be able to bring it out on PlayStation and Switch for Star Wars gamers that may have read about it, but never had a chance to play it, is exciting. Looking back, so many talented people put so much of themselves into bringing this game to life. It was a great collaborative effort over 15 years ago, and all of their great work will be available for old Republic Commando fans to play again on PlayStation and Switch, and now for a new generation of fans to try for the first time.
