It was just announced by Atomic Mass Games, the Asmodee Studio that currently produces the Star Wars: X-Wing and Star Wars Legion Miniatures tabletop games, that a new Star Wars miniatures skirmish game will be released next year. The name of the upcoming game is Star Wars: Shatterpoint, which features iconic characters from the Star Wars universe.
Star Wars: Shatterpoint, the upcoming miniature skirmish game is set to be released in June 2023 and will be released alongside other Star Wars products. The game will make the players build a strike team of characters, such as Bo-Katan Kryse and Ahsoka Tano or Lord Maul, and have them fight in battles with evolving mission objectives.

One of the differences between the upcoming Star Wars: Shatterpoint game and Star Wars: Legion is that Shatterpoint focuses on a smaller “strike team” of iconic Star Wars characters in comparison to a larger army. The players will be able to choose either thematic squads or team up several characters to form custom squads, similar to Marvel: Crisis Protocol game which allows the players to create teams with characters from different rosters. As with the other miniature games, the players will be able to build and paint miniatures for Star Wars: Shatterpoint.
In the recent press release announcing the new Star Wars miniature game, Will Shick, director of product development at AMG said, "The design and development of the Star Wars: Shatterpoint miniatures game is really our love letter to the excitement and energy of being a kid on Saturday mornings. " We wanted to take all the great things about Star Wars—the action, the adventure, and the iconic characters—to create a Star Wars miniatures game experience that felt like it had come straight out of the animated lineups of the '80s and '90s. To say it was a dream come true to work with such a talented group of artists, sculptors, and our awesome team at Lucasfilm to create new versions of the iconic Star Wars cast in this style would be a complete understatement.
Star Wars: Shatterpoint’s preview will be shown by Atomic Mass Games at the upcoming Adepticon 2023. The game is scheduled to be released next summer.
