Update: The announcement is official with the launch date of June 28th, 2016 and the eight platforms, PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, PC, PS3, 360, Vita and 3DS, all confirmed. Here's the trailer:
According to a listing on Xbox.com, 'LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens' is coming to the Xbox One on June 28th 2016. The game is also expected for seven other platforms. It will bring the classic LEGO formula, which started with 'LEGO Star Wars,' to 'The Force Awakens.' In addition to the events portrayed in the movie, the game will also contain "playable content that bridges the story gap between Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
From the Xbox.com listing:
"The Force is strong with this one… The No. 1 LEGO® videogame franchise triumphantly returns with a fun-filled, humorous journey based on the blockbuster Star Wars film. Play as Rey, Finn, Poe, BB-8, Kylo Ren, Han Solo, and the rest of your favorite characters from the movie!
In LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, players relive the epic action from the blockbuster film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, retold through the clever and witty LEGO lens. The game will also feature exclusive playable content that bridges the story gap between Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens also introduces Multi-Builds and Blaster Battles to the LEGO videogame universe. With Multi-Builds, use available LEGO bricks to open up new paths, then break them apart and re-build them again to open up another! And another! During Blaster Battles, use your surroundings as cover to stand against the First Order."
No doubt a full reveal with trailer and further details will follow. As it is, this ought to be the most singularly focused 'LEGO Star Wars' game to date as even with the extra promised content, it focuses on one film.
