Star Wars 1313 Could Still Happen Despite Lucasarts Closure

Star Wars 1313

Though yesterday was indeed a sad one for many employees of Lucasarts, fans do have a glimmer of hope when it comes to the possibility of Star Wars 1313 still seeing the light of day.

On Wednesday, Disney announced it was closing Lucasarts, and would instead focus on licensing the properties for future games. While it was concerning that a third studio was hit with staff reductions since the start of April (with the possibility of more to come as more year-end fiscal reports come in), fan attention immediately turned to speculating on the future of previously announced titles like Star Wars 1313.

Though little was known about when and where 1313 would be released, the hype surrounding the Star Wars title had continued to thrive since it was announced last year. While Disney didn’t outright confirm to Game Informer Star Wars 1313 would indeed still come out, the company didn’t outright rule out the possibility either.

“It is worth noting that we are looking for proven external partners who can help us provide video games to our fans. We still believe in the video game industry, we still will provide Star Wars games, we’re just looking at different models rather than internal production… They’re evaluating everything. There’s always a possibility that it [Star Wars 1313] can still come out via licensing.”

Disney’s statement could be nothing more than window dressing, but that the company is at least considering the potential of Star Wars 1313 is good news. It’s unlikely we’ll learn any more about the future of Lucasarts’ licenses for some time, but at least we know Disney is open to the idea of further games from the brand. Just as long as they’re not actually developed at Lucasarts.
