Disney and LucasArts are still interested in a more mature Star Wars game

For those that know nothing about it, Star Wars 1313 was supposed to be a serious/mature game set in the Star Wars universe, specifically the crime riddled underbelly of Coruscant. However, since LucasArts was at that point going through the Disney buyout the game never got far in development and was seemingly canceled.

All of this is relevant because at a recent interview for Slashfilm, LucasArts head Kathleen Kennedy talked about the various unfinished projects left behind after the internal development studio was mostly dissolved.

Now, don't expect some direct confirmation because it definitely isn't here but one interesting thing did happen during the interview, Kennedy brought up the topic of Star Wars 1313 herself and mentioned how they (as in LucasArts) really like the idea.

"No. No, interestingly enough, thats an area we’ve spent a lot of time, reading through the material that he developed is something we very much would like to explore. And there was 1313 the game, where there was… Unbelievable. So our attitude is, we don’t want to throw any of that stuff away. It’s gold. And it’s something we’re spending a lot of time looking at, pouring through, discussing, and we may very well develop those things further. We definitely want to."

If Star Wars 1313 does end up happening they will need to change its story quite drastically because the big reveal at the end was supposed to be that your main character is actually Boba Fett and the game would end with you taking up the signature armor and helmet. But after the game was canceled all of this information leaked out, ruining the whole element of surprise the story might have.

Again, this whole interview isn't confirmation that Star Wars 1313 will come but even if it doesn't end up happening at least we now know Disney and LucasArts are up for making a more serious and mature game/movie in the Star Wars universe, something fans have been clamoring about for years.
