LEGO Star Wars Battles: Coming soon on Apple Arcade
LEGO Star Wars Battles (LSWB) is a mobile real-time strategy game developed by Playdemic and TT Games Brighton in partnership with LEGO. The game was originally released on mobile in Beta in select regions only to be shut down in July of 2021 before being fully released. The decision came about a month after the developers (Playdemic) were acquired by EA, which led many to believe that it was the aftermath following the acquisition.
All that said, the title will be re-released via Apple Arcade soon (no further details provided).

From the press release:
Featuring characters and locales from all Star Wars eras, including Star Wars™: The Clone Wars™, and Rogue One™: A Star Wars™ Story, players can collect iconic heroes and villains such as Luke Skywalker™, Rey™, Obi-Wan Kenobi™, Boba Fett™, and Darth Vader™, along with characters such as porgs, stormtroopers, battle droids, and a variety of vehicles from AT-ATs to TIE bombers, and even the Millennium Falcon. As players progress and level up, they will unlock different arenas based on familiar Star Wars locales, including Scarif, Naboo, Hoth, Endor, Geonosis, and more.
Lego Star Wars Battles will require a subscription. Games on Apple’s service are playable with a $4.99-a-month fee, which lets players access more than 200 ad-free titles. Apple Arcade titles sometimes receive a console/PC release, but it is not a guarantee.
