A long time ago (2012, specifically) in a galaxy far, far away…. (Earth, actually), LucasArts announced Star Wars 1313 – arguably one of promising looking games in the Star Wars lineup of releases. Sadly, it was cancelled in 2013 during the Disney takeover – we even wrote about it in our Cancelled Games We Really Want To Play feature – but it seems like 1313 may be getting a second-chance.
In an interview with Slashfilm, Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy made mention of the huge archive of unrealised Star Wars-related material that Disney “would very much like to explore,” including Star Wars 1313. “Our attitude is, we don’t want to throw any of that stuff away. It’s gold. And it’s something we’re spending a lot of time looking at, poring through, discussing, and we may very well develop those things further,” she said. “We definitely want to.”
To be clear, “We’re not throwing anything away”doesn’t mean that the game is back in development just yet, but the fact that the head-honcho of LucasFilm knows 1313 by name and pecifically mentioned it in an interview is quote promising.
