While it might seem that Star Wars 1313 is shelved forever, there might still be hope for the game. In an interview with Slashfilm, head of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, told the site that Lucasfilm is still looking at George Lucas’ live action Star Wars TV show, as well as Star Wars 1313. This is good news for fans of Star Wars games (like us!) who have feared the third-person action adventure was dead forever.
Speaking of the TV show and the game, Kennedy said there is still hope.
“We don’t want to throw any of that stuff away,” Kennedy told Slashfilm. “It’s gold. And it’s something we’re spending a lot of time looking at, pouring through, discussing, and we may very well develop those things further. We definitely want to.”
The game was originally announced just before E3 in 2012, and some of you might remember us telling you about it. Then they showed a trailer later that year at Gamescon, two months before Disney purchased Lucasfilm. We were excited for the potential gritty game, set in the lower depths of Coruscant and then we were disappointed when we were told it was put on the backburner and might not ever come to fruition.
But with this news from Kennedy that they might not be abandoning the project, maybe we will see the game in some form at some point in the future. Before you get too excited, keep in mind that just because Kennedy says they don’t want to scrap the material doesn’t mean we’ll see the game as it was originally presented to us.
