Star Wars 1313 Summary
Electronic Arts and Star Wars have had a happy marriage for years, and 2015 was no different, with 13 million units of Star Wars Battlefront shipping and free-to-play MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic going strong. It's not surprising that the publisher would tease that it has two new games in the pipeline.
Star Wars 1313 was a game that promised a very interesting action-adventure experience centered around the fan-favorite character Boba Fett. In Disney's acquisition of LucasArts, Star Wars 1313's development stopped and the project was seemingly left behind. However, a new interview points out that 1313 has not been forgotten and is actually still quite possible.
Amy Hennig, who helped createUncharted series, is today over at working on a now-not-so-secret Star Wars title. What exactly it is and has us doing remains clouded by the Darkside of corporate marketing.
Actor Nolan North seems to have smuggled out some plans. He said at Metrocon 2015 that this new Star Wars is "in the style of Uncharted," clarifying that it's not a revival of Star Wars 1313.
Star Wars 1313 was once a promising shooter concept, set in the grimiest areas of the Star Wars universe. Now, unfortunately, it's dead, and all we have left is a batch of concept art showing what might have been.
Lucasfilm has abandoned the once promising Star Wars 1313 project as ownership of the trademark was relinquished December 23rd, 2013. The trademark is now in the Sarlacc pit of the public domain.
LucasArts closed down last year following purchase by Disney who now controls Star Wars, and Star Wars 1313 was scrapped. It was to feature fan-favourite Boba Fett.
