I know people are probably sick of people moaning about it, but I hope that they consider Battlefront 3 or KotOR 3 while it's on hold.

It depends whether they want to make shed-loads of cash or not. Both games have been talked about so much that even people who never played the originals would probably pick them up just to see what all the fuss was about. Unfortunately, I think it's more likely that they'll release an awful movie tie-in similiar to the atrocious Revenge of the Sith game, to cash in on the movie's success.

This actually looked mildly interesting, but along with the new Star Wars movies this will end up being a 3rd rate cash in on a franchise that should have been left well alone.

Split Second wasn't disappointing. It was just shoddily marketed and poorly advertised by Disney, not to mention released on the same day as Blur and only a week after Call Of Duty Black Ops. It was a fantastic arcade racer.

Lucasarts: we're making mature Star Wars game!

Disney buy Lucasarts....

Disney: Okay Lucasarts, you're now making a starwars game based on the new movie we are making.

Lucasarts: What about Starwars 1313?

Disney:

I was hoping this would be a long return to form for Star Wars games. The last good one was probably Rogue Squadron 2 on the Gamecube. Still I disagree with the notion that Disney will just be a quick cash in with the franchise. They've handled the Marvel franchises well, Iron Man should have been a s**t film, featuring a third rate super hero and look how that turned out.

We can but see how this will pan out, and check E3 this year for any big announcements from LucasArts.
Hopefully, we will find out within the next week the definitive future of Star Wars.

Sigh. I was looking forward to seeing more, not less.

It just shows to what depths the games industry has fallen. It's not about 1313 THE GAME, it's all about Star Wars - the IP.

I remember a time when new half-decent games were released practically every week and the need to put anything on hold was on account of technical issues - which rarely materialised because people were competent. Today's suits aren't about producing great games, they're just about marketing their IP and characters, which means games play out more like interactive movie experiences. In this case, it's not as if Disney aren't going to release another Star Wars trilogy for everyone to sit through - and it'll probably be s**t.

There was a time when Lucasarts could do no wrong. X-Wing, Tie Fighter, The Dig, Full Throttle, X-Wing Vs Tie Fighter, Dark Forces, Dark Forces II. This was all really really good / great stuff. I mean Christ, I've just rattled off 7 x circa 1990s titles just off the top of my head without having to think. Today, we're left sweating on the future of just 1 Lucasarts / Disney title.

It's not progress at all. The entertainment industry as a whole has become a steaming pile of sith. Arrrrghhh!!!

I feel a touch of the Palpatines coming on. Must sit down. Good. Gooooooooood.

Considering what they paid for it you'd expect them to want a return. This is old news as they said they would move away from traditional gaming.

The visuals/settings for 1313 were used in recent episodes of the Clone Wars animated show. Almost like a mini tie in to get people used to the idea of the underworld of Coruscant.

Shame if they ditch this game as it looked interesting. GTA Star Wars ... not too shabby?!

At least they wont have made the game, given it a cliff hanger ending & then dropped it like they did with the force unleashed 2 with no definitive ending or tie in to the original movies (which the first game did quite nicely).
