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.
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.
