Lucasfilm registers multiple Star Wars domain names - Report

The list of domain names registered by Lucasfilm includes Star Wars Alliance, Star Wars Rebels, and Wookie Hunters.

Lucasfilm has registered a group of Star Wars-related domain names, Fusible has reported.

Earlier this week, Electronic Arts and the Walt Disney Company announced a new multi-year exclusive agreement to develop and publish new games based on Star Wars characters and stories.

Several of the new domains reference Star Wars themes, including the following:

- Star Wars Alliance
- Star Wars Rebels
- Star Wars Wolf Pack
- Wolf Pack Adventures
- Order 67
- Bothan Spies
- Gungan Frontier 2
- Gungan Frontier 3
- Gungan Frontier 4
- Wookie Hunters

No further information was available about whether the domains are tied to current or future projects, and none of the domains match currently announced games.

EA also confirmed earlier this week in a post-earnings financial call that it will not publish any new Star Wars games during its 2014 fiscal year, which runs from April 1, 2013, through to March 31, 2014.

EA's deal with Disney makes it the exclusive developer of core Star Wars games. These titles will be delivered on all platforms. Battlefield studio DICE and Dead Space outfit Visceral Games are currently making new Star Wars games, which will run on the Frostbite 3 engine.

Disney acquired LucasArts alongside Lucasfilm in October last year for $4.05 billion.

The fates of Star Wars: 1313 and Star Wars: First Assault remain unclear.

EA Games, not sure what I think about them anymore. LucasArts should have never died. Damn George Lucas for not giving a crap about his franchises anymore. So what about a new Indiana Jones game? Or was Staff of Kings the last and final Indiana Jones game we'll ever see? Lego Indy 3 please, or something with amazing graphics. I felt that we were cheated with that eyesore that was the last Indiana Jones game for Wii. Jedi Knight 3 and a new X-Wing vs Tie Fighter game would be incredible for the next Xbox and Playstation.

No Battlefront 3.  No Republic Commando .  No new Jedi Knight.  No new X-Wing.  No new Knights of the Old Republic.  What on earth (or in a galaxy far, far away (I felt obligated to say that)) is EA planning on releasing.  And Gungan Frontier???  WTF!!!

Where the hell is the Battlefront 3? I'm currently playing the Battlefront 1 right now. Goddamn, EA may have mistakes about it.

Hey let's ignore everything the fans have been asking for like Jedi Knight 3, KOTOR 3, Republic Commando 2, and a new X-Wing/TIE game and make a bunch of crap! The Wolf Pack thing is a character from the Clone Wars, so no. Order 67 is the only thing that sounds interesting.

EA, where games and franchises go to die.  RIP Star Wars games.

How cool would a new Battlefront game on Frostbite 3 be? That would be awesome.... A couple of those could be "new" names for the Battlefront series (Alliance? Rebels?), which wouldn't be unheard of for an old series being revived for a new console generation....

Wookie Hunter might sound intresting.  As would Alliance and Rebels.  But what would make me happy, and make my week, would be kotor 3.  But I've been waiting almost ten years for that, and I doubt that it would turn out like Max Payne 3, something that was worth the wait.

Gungian frontier was THE SHIT. you don't know what you missed. I loved that game as a kid and its no coincidence I did a biology degree.

These sound like mobile/facebook game titles. I get the feeling AAA Star Wars games are dead.

"Wookie Hunters" - Sounds like a 70's porno!


Anyways, get to making KOTOR 3!

KOTOR 3 or bust.

That's all I have to say.

Just to let you know: Obsidian is going to pitch KOTOR 3 to EA, set between Episodes III and IV - and they are open to both do it solo or work with Bioware on it - EA only needs to say "yes" and Obsidian will be making KOTOR 3.

Gungans? Who's the jag that decided there is a need for more Gungans? Seriously 3 domain names dedicated to Gungans?

Who likes Gungans?

@AuronAXE I agree with you that these sound like mobile games, but as far as AAA SW games being dead, EA just announced that DICE and Visceral are working on those "core" titles.

@AuronAXE Then why are AAA studios DICE and Visceral making new SW games?

Knights of the OLD Republic. It would make zero sense for the game to take place anywhere near Episodes III and IV. Obsidian did say they want to make another Star Wars RPG. Unfortunately, it probably wouldn't be KOTOR 3.

@amari24 I don't care WHEN it takes place.  Just make the GAME!

@Gallowhand @Wingus-T-Dingus Maybe... If the game was called Star wars Gungan Frontier 2: General Jar-Jars Genocide. Where after wiping out all of his people Jar-Jar has to fight and kill the last boss. Plot twist, It's himself. 

Even if it was designed like that it would still be a renter at best.
