Star Wars 1313

When Disney bought the rights to the Star Wars empire, they crushed the hopes and dreams of many a Star Wars fan when, with one evil swoop of Mickey Mouse’s paw, they shut down LucasArts and cancelled Star Wars 1313.

This hurt even more when we found out the game had undergone major changes since that awesome first E3 demo, and would have featured Boba Fett as its protagonist.

Many still found a glimmer of hope that Star Wars 1313 could be saved in a licensing deal. Unfortunately, this deal did not happen and this past week the United States Patent and Trademark Office revealed that Disney failed to renew the title’s trademark , thus snuffing out any hope that Star Wars 1313 will be revived.

EA and Star Wars: Battlefront are  our only hopes remaining for a good new Star Wars game… George Lucas… if you’re reading this… please save us!

PS: Keep Miklós in your thoughts after reading this – Star Wars 1313 is a bit of a sore point for him.
