Yup, it was a joke (wasn't my idea, I nearly forgot about April Fool's day, thankfully not everyone did).
Whether or not JK2 (or Dark Forces 3 or whatever you want to call it) will ever really come out or not is up to LEC and whomever they may be working with. Until we have official confirmation from them, consider it just a rumor. Our "news item" was not official, it was a hoax.
I liked the part about the wookies myself.
