Star Wars 1313 was going to be about Boba Fett


Hnnnnng. Kotaku has revealed that before it was cancelled, LucasArts had shifted development of Star Wars 1313 towards basing the storyline around Boba Fett, the popular Bounty Hunter from the series.

Kotaku's unnamed source states that the game took this major shift in development last May, before the E3 reveal. "Star Wars creator George Lucas looked at 1313 - which at that point had been scrapped and refocused multiple times and told the team he wanted it to be about Boba Fett, the mercenary whose origins as a clone were revealed in the Star Wars prequel movies."

The same source also stated that "They ended up with movie tech that wouldn't fit in a game, and game tech that wouldn't fit in a movie," and that more importantly "1313 was always in danger of not being made."

Star Wars 1313 was officially cancelled yesterday after Disney decided to shutter LucasArts development wing.

Thanks Kotaku!

It would have been the Attack of the Clones of the Star Wars games probably.

Ouch, feels like pouring salt on a wound! Set at the early point in Fett's career as he follows his father into bounty hunting perhaps? Probably canned as Disney has already said they intend to do a character movie on Boba (along with a Han Solo movie). Maybe we'll eventually see this as a re-written release to tie in with the plot of the future movie.

Bobba Fett already has an origins story and a couple for his signature hunts. What we needed was an unnamed hero like Revan to develop, nurture, and evolve into a bonafide badass.

Meh, Boba Fett is over rated, how good of a bounty hunter could he have been when he got killed by accident.

He didn't get killed by accident? In fact he is still very much alive

Officially licensed fanfic is still fanfic, anyway even if you think he didn't die he still got taken out by accident by a blind man, pretty incompetent, mind you his father wasn't much better, how stupid must you be to think you can take on a jedi with a gun, and it's not like in the original films where nobody remembered the jedi, in the prequels every one knew who and what they were and not to mess with them, I suppose he scored points for loyalty to his employer though.

His father had previously killed multiple Jedi, he just happened to lose to one of the best swordsman in the Jedi Order. Besides multiple Jedi were killed by guns in the prequel trilogy.

That was a bit different though, not always in combat, and against squadrons of Fett clones, not a single one. Hell, his son couldn't even capture Han Solo on his own, Vader did all the work there, he was just a glorified courier service for the carbonite.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
