New Details About Star Wars 1313 Will Make You Hate Disney
I may have ventured into the spectacular with that headline but let me break it down. Yesterday we learned that Disney had closed down LucasArts, a studio which had been around for 31 years and was responsible for Monkey Island, a multitude of Star Wars games and many more. I could list all the games but we’ve got more pressing things to talk about.
Perhaps the biggest loss in terms of games the studio was currently working on would be Star Wars 1313 which looked great and promised to be a grittier, more intriguing Star Wars game than what we’ve been receiving of late. Now, a new rumoured detail has surfaced which may induce sudden and uncontrollable hatred for Disney. 1313 was set to be a Boba Fett game. Just let that sink in.

A game about a cutthroat planet and it’s most dangerous level revolving around everyone’s favourite masked bounty hunter and displayed in next-gen visuals. Sure I’m hyping it up but everyone always says nice things about dead people.
The rumour goes that just prior to E3 2012 where the game wowed us, Star Wars creator, George Lucas, looked at 1313 and decided it needed a change. At this point the game had already been scrapped and refocused multiple times but Lucas had decided he felt it should be about Boba Fett.
Surely such a game would be something special but alas, with the closure of LucasArts it’s unlikely Star Wars 1313 will ever live again. It’s possible that the title could be handed over to another developer to handle but chances of this happening are slim.
“They ended up with movie tech that wouldn’t fit in a game, and game tech that wouldn’t fit in a movie,” a source told Kotaku. “1313 was always in danger of not being made.”
