Star Wars Squadrons has been out for a few weeks now, and you might’ve had a little time to finish the story by now. If you haven’t played yet, what are you waiting for? And if you have played and haven’t finished the campaign yet, please don’t spoil it for yourself by continuing to read this blog.
I don’t want to ruin this for you.
It’s not THAT crazy, but it might be, so don’t risk it.
Okay, time to make the text big.
SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS
Okay, here we go. Twitter goon @Handsome_Jake_ posted this screenshot from one of the final missions of the Squadrons campaign, which in no small way hints at a major character’s potential return.
That’s right folks, Titan Squadron could very well be headed towards the Unknown Regions, the last uncharted segments of Wild Space that could be where Grand Admiral Thrawn is currently adrift.
How did he get there? Well, to explain, we’re gonna need to get in some more spoiler territory for Star Wars Rebels. Enjoy.
So as far as Rebels tells us, Ezra Bridger and Grand Admiral Thrawn (one of the most infamous villains in Star Wars lore), are either dead or somewhere lost in the galaxy together.
If Admiral Sloane is sending Titan Squadron to the Unknown Regions, it could only mean that they are headed there to hunt down the infamous Chiss leader.
This isn’t even close to the only reference to Star Wars Rebels (or Thrawn) in Squadrons, as Vanguard Squadrons’ Trandoshan pilot “Frisk” claims that he found himself allied with the Rebellion/New Republic after accidentally selling a piece of counterfeit art to Thrawn (a famous art enthusiast).
Could we see the return of Thrawn to Star Wars canon? I’d say its more likely than not. Will it happen in Star Wars Squadrons 2, or maybe Star Wars Battlefront III? Only time will tell.
