With the closure of LucasArts, Star Wars 1313 is likely never going to be released, but with Disney's announcement today comes the news that the game was going to focus on Boba Fett.
LucasArts is dead, and it's dragging a few victims down with it. Star Wars 1313; the gritty, more adult Star Wars game that wowed the world at last year's E3 and was expected by many to be a breath of life for the franchise, is likely never going to see a release. Though it and a few other in-development titles may be auctioned off to other developers, several sources are agreeing that chances of that happening are slim.
Is this our last glimpse of 1313?
That’s unfortunate news for Star Wars fans, but perhaps more so because we just received a pretty big announcement about it: It was going to be about Boba Fett. Though his screen time in the original trilogy is fairly limited, the bounty hunter is a fan favorite character, and the game refocused on him after George Lucas surveyed development on the game and told the team he wanted Fett to be the focus of the story.
Development of the game has been on hold since last fall, but the change in focus to feature Boba Fett happened way back in May after a series of scrapped and refocused iterations of the game had gone through the studio. Development of the game apparently, has been troubled from the start, as one source told Kotaku: "They ended up with movie tech that wouldn't fit in a game, and game tech that wouldn't fit in a movie. 1313 was always in danger of not being made."
