Star Wars 1313 ‘On Hold’
“I’ve got a bad feeling about this…”
The highly anticipated Star Wars 1313 may be ‘on hold’ according to sources close to the developer.
Despite claims that Disney would not interfere with existing LucasArts projects following their 2012 acquisition of the Star Wars visionaries, that appears to be exactly what has happened in this situation.
With J.J. Abrams set to reboot the franchise, it makes sense that they would prefer to focus their creative efforts on the upcoming film and – seeing as the current generation is rapidly drawing to a close – a delay could align nicely for a next-gen release for Star Wars 1313.
Here’s hoping that the project still has legs and hasn’t been completely canned.
