Rumour: Star Wars 1313 'on hold'


Star Wars 1313 faces an uncertain future, with new reports suggesting that development of the title has been put on hold.

Kotaku reports that three separate sources claim the title has stalled, although LucasArts itself insists that work on the title is continuing.

According to rumours, Disney's focus is on the new JJ Abrams-directed Star Wars: Episode VII, not on material that is unrelated it. 1313's developers may still be fervently plugging away, for all we know. As mentioned LucasArts says, the game "continues production," however Kotaku seems convinced that it's not currently moving forward in any official capacity.

The game isn't without its troubles having been originally based on a previously upcoming tv series, which was then cancelled. 1313 was then re-written and now follows the Uncharted model as seen by the reveal of the game at E3 2012. Many were impressed with the game when it was first shown, believing that it would be released on next-gen consoles, however it was later confirmed for PS3 and Xbox 360.

Let's hope things work out for the game.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror...

Can only hope that 'rumour' is all it is. One of my most anticipated future titles.

this is a big shame. this game had lots of potential and i think we are all due a good star wars game. hopefully these rumours are not true.

It amazes me as to how much potential the star wars series has for games and there are very few really good games based on it.

Just out of interest and I know its kind of off topic but was inspired to ask by the image at the top. Why is ShopTo so amazing with games but not so good with Blurays? Don't get why there is such good value on one and not so much on the other. Any ideas?

Can see this game if ever released being better than the movies JJ Abrahms movies are toilet of the highest calibre! He better not ruin Star Wars as will hunt him down and sent him to the moon with no return rocket

I guess Data Static shopto buy in bulk for games but not for BluRays. Makes sense as the primary market is gaming. Some good gadgets on here tho!

I'd much rather they took their time and released a good Star Wars game. We don't want another mess like Star Wars Kinect with a hundred different studios working on one game.

I don't like what Disney have done to the series! Still dreading this new director on the movies! They should stick to Monsters Inc and Toy Story! If it ain't broke don't fix it!

Clone Wars was tripe I agree Rachael! But really don't rate JJ Abrahms. I dread what he's going to do to it but I will admit I am wrong if it turns out ok! Just really think everything will be toned down to try and draw in more of a younger audience who don't care about the history of Star Wars

I think this will be a next generation release, can you imagine that especially after viewing the current crop of next generation releases.

I think current gen will be supported for about 5 years after the PS4 release. Ok quality titles will fizz out and some will be released on both consoles, but could see this should it ever see the light coming out on both consoles, yes
