LucasArts to Reveal Secret Title at E3
 
from egmnow.com

E3 is a great time for surprises, and wouldn’t it be great if LucasArts finally revealed Battlefront 3? Now I’m not saying they will, but when you get an invitation to come see an “unannounced game in development,” you can’t help but be optimistic. So, being the curious lad that I am, asked whether or not this unannounced title would have lightsabers in it. The answer wasn’t confirmed, but it wasn’t denied either. There has been numerous posts about Battlefront 3 being in the works, then being canceled, so anything is possible.

LucasArts did confirm they were using the Unreal 3 engine for a couple of games; an aerial combat game being one of them. Maybe an X Wing vs Tie Fighter title is in the works? What do you guys think? How about a new Jedi Knight game?

You've hit it big, Threepwood4life! Front page'd!

Sven_Q45 05-24-2012 04:19 PM

SWKOTOR 3. Yeah! :D
Or maybe SW Republic Commando 2. But with another squad?

Or maybe not SW. Something new perhaps. :)

Rum Rogers 05-24-2012 04:46 PM

Meh, same old crappy SW games.

Alexrd 05-24-2012 07:10 PM

Whatever it is, they got me hooked.

Jenni 05-24-2012 07:59 PM

It's probably Star Wars 1313, the game Lucasfilm trademarked earlier this month.

It's rumored to be a game based on Boba Fett (due to him using the alias CT-1313 in a Star Wars novel).

I'm just hoping that whatever is revealed at E3 was developed by LucasArts in-house. It's their 30th anniversary this year, and it would be a shame to celebrate it with only a licensed title from an outside developer.

This. Seems to be the most logical conclusion anyway.

Check this out from last year.

Apparently, it's going to be a first person shooter.

It's probably going to be 1313, but I'm hoping for Dark Forces 3 or Jedi Knight 4.

So what we have to far...

An
* Unreal Engine 3 Powered
* Boba Fett
* First Person Shooter
* Called "1313"

Alexrd 05-25-2012 08:08 AM

I think "Star Wars 1313" will be a teaser site or something. At least the "1313" part sounds more like a (release) date.

Monkey Mania 05-25-2012 08:18 AM

That would work if there were a 13th month.

Cyrus7 05-25-2012 08:18 AM

I wouldn't be that pessimistic. It can be Handsome Halibut.

Here's the trademark.

Monkey Mania 05-25-2012 08:59 AM

I found that LucasArts is in fact working on 3 different games at the moment.

In May 2012, Lucasarts filed a trademark for a videogame called "Star Wars 1313" http://tarr.uspto.gov/servlet/tarr?r...entry=85613835
In September of last year, they were hiring for a first person shooter, an action adventure game, and an aerial combat game
http://www.gamespot.com/news/lucasar...-games-6334433.
In April of last year, they licensed Unreal Engine 3. http://www.joystiq.com/2011/04/26/lu...multi-project/


The action-adventure game may be Star Wars 1313.
The FPS game may be a new Jedi Knight game.
The aerial combat game may either be a new X-wing game or Rogue Squadron game.

Wait, what happened to that?

Management shift, cancellation. Standard LucasArts procedure. :vadar:

If no adventure then heck a very good RPG like SWKOTOR. :)

LucasArts Drops Gamers into the Criminal Underworld with New Mature Themed Videogame Franchise, Star Wars 1313™

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif - May 31, 2012 - LucasArts, a Lucasfilm Ltd. company, announced today a new internally developed videogame franchise, Star Wars 1313™. The game will make its formal debut at the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles June 5-7. As players take control of a lethal bounty hunter in a never-before-seen dark and mature world, Star Wars 1313 introduces an integrated development approach by bringing together great artists across the Lucasfilm organization, including LucasArts, Industrial Light & Magic, Lucasfilm Animation Ltd. and Skywalker Sound. A third person cinematic action adventure game, Star Wars 1313 will bring to life the Coruscant underworld, the most dangerous place in the Star Wars™ galaxy.

Named for Level 1313, a ruthless criminal underground deep below the surface of the planet of Coruscant, the game puts players in control of a deadly bounty hunter as he uses an arsenal of exotic weaponry to hunt down his marks and uncover the truth surrounding a criminal conspiracy. Star Wars 1313 emphasizes epic set pieces and fast-paced combat with a hero who uses human skills and gadgets, rather than supernatural Force powers, to make his way through this dangerous world.

"We're excited to share one of the projects LucasArts has been hard at work developing," said Paul Meegan, President, LucasArts. "Star Wars 1313 dives into a part of the Star Wars mythos that we've always known existed, but never had a chance to visit. We are committed to bringing the best gameplay experience and visual fidelity to life and I truly believe the work we are showcasing at E3 will speak for itself."

"We're excited to share one of the projects LucasArts has been hard at work developing".

Good, it seems it was developed in-house. :) I hate seeing LucasArts reduced to a mere licensor and/or publisher of Lucasfilm properties.

They didn't mention their 30th anniversary though, which was a bit odd. Hopefully they'll do something at E3. I still remember seeing their 20th anniversary celebration at E3. It was my first and only E3, and that was the biggest memory I took from it, seeing the LucasArts 20th anniversary video playing on the multi-screen setup at the lobby. :)

Sven_Q45 06-02-2012 05:26 AM

I just read that on a German site.

But it looks interesting. And my favorite worlds in SWKOTOR are the urban places.

Does LucasArts also realise its the 25th anniversary of the SCUMM engine this year?

Sven_Q45 06-02-2012 07:30 PM

Maybe. But they (probably) doesn´t care. :(

Snugglecakes 06-03-2012 01:57 PM

I doubt anyone at "LucasArts" even knows what SCUMM is.

I see George Lucas has retired again. How about devoting some time to fixing your once-great games company? All he has to do is fire everyone, get all the old people back, and make sure there's always pizza. Amazing games will come :)

Sven_Q45 06-03-2012 03:10 PM

Retired AGAIN? WTF. You can only retire one time. :D

I think they doesn´t care. :(

Snugglecakes 06-06-2012 03:10 PM

I have to say, 1313 looks rather amazing.
