Star Wars 1313 put on hold?

Star Wars 1313 is now reportedly on hold after Disney's $4 billion acquisition of LucasArts, according to gaming website Kotaku

 

Star Wars 1313 has had its future thrown into doubt, according to gaming website Kotaku. In a report published on the site, Kotaku claims that sources close to the game's development have said that the Star Wars 1313 has been put on hold. 

"Three unrelated sources familiar with game development at LucasArts have all told us that development has been frozen or put on hold since Disney company's November acquisition of Star Wars creator George Lucas' media empire," the report said. "That freeze has caused a game that was slated for a late 2013 release on next-gen platforms to potentially miss this year's E3 and to slide into next year."

LucasArts has so far declined to comment on this speculation, although it has confirmed that the game hasn't been cancelled. It has been mooted that development on the game has been scaled back so its release can coincide with the release of the next J.J. Abrams-helmed Star Wars film, which has been slated for release in 2015. 

The news is sure to disappoint Star Wars fans as 1313 looks like one of the more interesting IPs set in George Lucas' space opera universe. The pitch for Star War 1313 sets it in the criminal underworld of the Star Wars where violence, drugs and organised crime is the order of the day.
