Star Wars 1313 won't be an Xbox One exclusive

"Probably not," Microsoft Studios executive Phil Spencer says about potential for company to be the one to revive reportedly canceled project.

by

If Star Wars 1313 does in fact one day see release, don't expect Microsoft to be the one to revive the project and make it an Xbox One-exclusive.

Writing on Twitter, Microsoft Studios executive Phil Spencer said it's unlikely Microsoft would have a hand in the game's revival, if that happens at all.

"[Probably] not," Spencer said. "[I'm] sure Disney have their own plans for [Star Wars]."

Star Wars 1313 was originally announced at E3 2012 as a next-gen Star Wars third-person action adventure game from LucasArts. The game, said to feature bounty hunter Boba Fett as its protagonist, was reportedly canceled in April 2013 when Disney closed LucasArts.

The House of Mouse has since abandoned its trademark for Star Wars 1313 and the game's creative director, Dominic Robilliard, has joined the PlayStation team where he is working as a design director for an unspecified project.

Disney and Electronic Arts signed an agreement last year to make the Battlefield publisher the exclusive creator of Star Wars games going forward. This deal spans 10 years and multiple projects, including a new Star Wars: Battlefront game from Battlefield creator DICE.

I thought this game was totally scrapped. I don't like the way it's been treated and that means red flag for me, but I will try to be optimistic.

Umm... Of course?  Disney owns Star Wars now, and has already signed the contracts making EA the exclusive publisher/developer of Star Wars games. That was news months ago. Was there actually speculation that MS would be involved, and make it X1 exclusive? If so, congratulations and being stupid, whoever was doing that speculating.

People need to let 1313 go.  With all the crappy Star Wars games out there, I don't see why people are clamoring over one they saw fit to cancel; it probably wasn't that good.

sigh....


anyways, if the game is left untouched for more than 2 years, its game over for SW1313


if the game is gonna have even a 1% chance of seeing the light of day they should release it in the next 2 years or just let it die with dignity

What's up with Eddie these days?He used to write something sensible and worth reading in these news articles of his.Eddie's never been the same news editor since the new GS came into existence.

The title of this article is very misleading....Nicely done Eddie, you should apply for a position at fox news.

I should have known this was clickbait when I saw who wrote the article. I move for a vote of no confidence in Eddie Makuck.

God help us I hope this stupid game and all it's files have been permanently deleted and the hard drive wiped.

Why in gods name would anyone play a star wars game where you are not a Jedi?

Without Jedi, star wars is flat out god awful.

I'm starting to think Disney is going to run Star Wars games into the ground, excluding Battlefront III. Hopefully they prove otherwise.

I admit to rolling my eyes when I was looking through the news feed, read the title and saw that Eddie was the author of this article. But dammit I clicked it anyway. Foolish! lol

Is this a mindfuck? Xbox would gain a powerful ally if it was an exclusive... A very powerful one.

@TrueProphecy22  yeah, its basically a non-news article. Its like saying Elvis will not be performing at Madison Square Garden when everyone knows he's already dead.

@TrueProphecy22 My thoughts exactly. They just wanted to put 1313 in the title to catch us....and then give us nothing.

@nemesi609  I'd bet money at this point KOTOR 3 won't see the light of day. From DICE/EA?

@chibi-acer  The thing is, 1313 looked way better than all the crappy Star Wars games, and it was a much more interesting and original concept. Also, it's not like it was cancelled because it was turning out badly. It was kinda, sorta, maybe cancelled because Disney shut down LucasArts when they bought it. For all we know, it's just on hiatus until one of EA's studios can make time between other projects to pick it up and finish it.

@brandonmshanks How so? It says 1313 won't be an X1 exclusive and that's exactly what the article says. It also goes on to discuss its current status.

@VenkmanPHD  If I'm going to play a Star Wars game, it either has to have force powers or starfighters.  Otherwise it might as well be any sci-fi action game.

@VenkmanPHD @realguitarhero5 @assertiveuser @deadpen Yea everyone hates turn based combat *Sarcastic tone* It worked quite well in Fallout and KotOR adding depth their combat. Turn based combat can add strategy to the same old just run, shoot, kill and repeat games.

@VenkmanPHD @realguitarhero5 @assertiveuser @deadpen  thats totally  your opinion man .. a few games have turned base combat they are really really good games like the fire emblem , banner saga , divinity original sin ( its in alpha but a brilliant game )
