Star Wars 1313 Won’t Ever Be An Xbox Exclusive

If the, now defunct, LucasArts project Star Wars 1313 will ever see the light of day, don’t expect it to be exclusive to Microsoft’s Xbox platform.

Microsoft Studios executive Phil Spencer confirmed on Twitter that it’s unlikely Microsoft will have a hand in the game’s revival, if that’ll happen at all.

“[Probably] not,” Spencer said. “[I’m] sure Disney have their own plans for [Star Wars].”

Star Wars 1313 was originally shown off at E3 2012 by LucasArts, and was supposed to be a third-person action-adventure game starring bounty hunter Boba Fett. The game was reportedly canceled in April 2013 when Disney closed LucasArts.

The possibility of ever seeing the game again was further dispelled when Disney chose to abandon the Star Wars 1313 trademark entirely. It was abandoned because “no Statement of Use or Extension Request timely filed after Notice of Allowance was issued.”

The only confirmed Stars Wars game thus far is the EA and DICE Battlefront reboot, which is set to release sometime in 2015. EA currently holds the rights to all the Star Wars games license, which will see them exclusively publish all games pertaining to the license for the next several years.
