Star Wars 1313 met its untimely fate earlier this week with the unfortunate shutdown of LucasArts. The game was going to focus on the lower levels of Coruscant where every type of grisly crime you can imagine happens. It’s a different world down there with gangsters, thieves, killers, and bounty hunters. According to Kotaku’s source, it was going to center on Boba Fett.
The source says George Lucas specified last May that the game should focus on Fett. Though I’m bummed to see the game cancelled and to see LucasArts shuttered, I can’t say that I’ll miss a game about that bounty hunter. I know he’s a popular character, but any time the phrase bounty hunter is mentioned in the Star Wars Expanded Universe it’s usually followed by Fett. Leave some mystery and focus on other characters; it’s a big galaxy!
Regardless of my feelings, I can’t deny the concept art shown above is striking. Check out another image after the break.
