The new mystery project will have its coming-out party on Thursday, May 31, during Spike's Game Trailers TV show.

No further details are available. Earlier this month, Lucasfilm filed a trademark application and registered domain names for Star Wars 1313, spiking speculation that this is the name of a new game in the Star Wars franchise.

The latest entry in the Star Wars franchise was Kinect Star Wars, which was released in April and received a chilly reception by critics. That game is set primarily during the time of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, with overlapping bits of the other prequel trilogy films and nods to the original Star Wars trilogy as well.
