RIP Star Wars 1313

Here's our ode to the late great Star Wars 1313, a game that was shown off at E3 in 2012 and showed a lot of promise. Set after the prequel trilogy but before the original trilogy, the game would have featured a younger Boba Fett and other bounty hunters under Jabba the Hutt's employ, and was focused on Level 1313 of Coruscant, where crime runs rampant.

Sadly, after Disney bought Lucasfilm, they laid off all the employees of LucasArts and cancelled all video game projects, including 1313. I suppose that means no more Curse of Monkey Island games either. There are no plans to continue work on 1313 or license it out to another developer.

You can click here to visit a website with more information on the game. Since the game was cancelled, there isn't much info, but it is still a nice look back at what could have been a great game.
