Even though Disney shuttered LucasArts earlier this year, Star Wars fans have at least one more game to look forward to. Disney Interactive today announced the upcoming Star Wars: Attack Squadrons, a free-to-play online game featuring some of the franchise's most famous ships in huge multiplayer dogfights. The game was developed by new game studio Area 52, and Disney will launch a closed beta of the game in the new year.

Rumors surrounding Attack Squadrons began to bubble up shortly after Disney closed LucasArts, when the company was seen registering multiple domains seemingly related to the new game. It seems that Lucas-inspired gaming is alive and well: along with this new game, fans can already expect the new, DICE-developed Star Wars: Battlefront, which debuted at E3, to land in 2015.
