No Caption Provided

LucasArts has made no mention of a release date or platform availability for Star Wars: 1313 since it announced the game in May 2012.

Star Wars: 1313 was first announced in May 2012. The internally developed third-person action adventure game will see players take on the role of a bounty hunter navigating a subterranean metropolis, Level 1313, beneath the surface of the planet Coruscant.

The game is being developed with the help of artists across the Lucasfilm organization, including LucasArts, Industrial Light & Magic, Lucasfilm Animation Ltd, and Skywalker Sound. The game will be based on the Unreal engine and feature full-body performance capture.

Star Wars: 1313 may not be the only new Star Wars game on the horizon. A listing for an Xbox Live Arcade game Star Wars: First Assault appeared last year. This project has not been formally announced.
