When LucasArts was closed in 2013 they were working on a promising-looking next gen Star Wars title called 1313, where players took on the role of a bounty hunter. The game was cancelled, although elements were transferred over to Visceral's "Ragtag" Star Wars title which was also recently cancelled. Now artist Brian Recktenwald, worked on the game, has shared tantalizing concept art of Star Wars 1313, the game that died twice.
Brian Recktenwald, who currently works at Uncharted/The Last of Us developer Naughty Dog, worked at LucasArts in the last few years of its life on titles such as The Force Unleashed 1 and 2 and Star Wars 1313. You can see all the concept art from the games he worked on at his ArtStation page here. Here's a few key pieces from 1313 itself.
They show the titular level of 1313 on the city planet Coruscant, which is home to the underclasses and criminal element of the planet, and made an appearance in the last season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars while the game was in development - which was supposed to be a tie-in to the game itself. While the stylish demo video (below) shows a generic character 1313 was supposed to be about popular bounty hunter Boba Fett.
Unfortunately the game was cancelled with closure of LucasArts following the Disney buyout. Visceral had planned to use elements of 1313 in their own game, but they were closed recently in their game is being course-corrected by another studio. We'll have to wait until at least 2020 before we know if anything remains of 1313 in that Star Wars game.
Star Wars Battlefront 2, at least, is out November 17 and has a single-player story campaign. So that's something.
