UPDATE: LucasArts confirmed tonight that this game is indeed a whole new Star Wars gaming franchise taking advantage of the Unreal Engine. All that is known at this point is that the game will be a mature game where the player controls a Bounty Hunter working to unravel a criminal conspiracy in the under levels of the galactic capital planet of Coruscant. What’s even more interesting is that the game is being developed by multiple different components of the Lucas Empire, including LucasArts, Industrial Light & Magic, Skywalker Sound and Lucasfilm Animation. While little is known at this point, it sounds like this game has promise, and I for one will be following it with interest. Stay tuned next week for more details at E3!
