Gamers have started a petition on Change.org, in an attempt to influence Electronic Arts into resuming development on 1313 and eventually allow the game to see the light of day. After Disney acquired LucasArts in 2013, all employees were laid off and the company was shut down, thus cancelling all current projects. This included games such as Star Wars 1313 and Star Wars: First Assault.
We are not sure how effective petitions like this is, but we do urge all our readers to sign it. Hopefully it will o influence Electronic Arts into resuming development on 1313 and eventually allow the game to see the light of day.
You can sign the petition over at Change.org
Here’s the summary:
At E3 2012 Lucasarts wowed us with a demo of Star Wars 1313. Gamers around the world were blown away with 1313. We could finally play a gritty dirty Star Wars game as a bounty hunter on Coruscant. After Lucasarts was disbanded and the Star Wars game licenses were purchased by EA, the game was then cancelled. But recently new concept art and story information about 1313 was released and now this game sounds better than ever. Please help get this amazing game finished by signing this petition.
