Cancelled Red Fly project Star Wars-related?

Resume of ex-Red Fly environment artist reveals studio was working on now-cancelled Star Wars title.


Earlier this year, Austin-based Red Fly Studio--the team behind the Wii version of Sega's Thor: God of Thunder--laid off 30 staff members due to the unexpected cancelation of "a large, high-profile project."

It now appears that the project may have been a Star Wars title, with the online resume of an ex-Red Fly developer (discovered first by Superannuation) revealing he had worked on a "next-gen Star Wars title" from January to June 2011, after the studio's completion of Thor: God of Thunder for the Wii.

Red Fly is best known for 2008's original Mushroom Men games on the Wii and DS. Its highest-profile games to date have been Wii versions of Ghostbusters: The Video Game, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, and Thor: God of Thunder.
