The fate of Star Wars 1313, a game that was in the works by Lucasarts, has been decided. After Disney purchased George Lucas’ company, the future of the mentioned title was uncertain, until recently. With game development responsibilities going to EA, players had hope there was a chance for a revival, but Disney decided not to renew the title’s trademark last December (before Christmas).
The info about Star Wars 1313 on the US Patent and Trademark Office’s web site says the game was “abandoned because no Statement of Use or Extension Request timely filed after Notice of Allowance was issued” and “the trademark application identified below was abandoned because the applicant (Lucasfilm Entertainment Company Ltd. LLC) failed to file for a statement of use or an extension of time.”
With EA working on a new Battlefield and Star Wars: The Old Republic, the chances are more than just slim. The game had bounty hunter Boba Fett as its main character.
