Star Wars 1313 Trademark Abandoned By Disney
According to an update to the United States Patent and Trademark Office website, Disney has abandoned the Star Wars 1313 trademark.
As explained on the government website, the trademark was abandoned because “no Statement of Use or Extension Request timely filed after Notice of Allowance was issued.” While this doesn’t mean that we won’t some some aspects of the game appear under a different name, it does suggest that Disney isn’t interested in the game’s narrative and its unique title.
The game was originally revealed by the now defunct LucasArts, and was described as the studio’s next-gen Star Wars third-person action adventure. It was one of the main highlights at the show floor and excited plenty of Star Wars fans, specifically due to its technical prowess. The game’s future was left in doubt when Disney shut down LucasArts after acquiring the Star Wars license from George Lucas, its creator, for $4.05 billion.
The game was named after level 1313 in the subterranean metropolis beneath the surface of the planet Coruscant, for all you die hard Star Wars fans. The game also featured fan favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett as the main protagonist.
