Knowing Lucas, he's probably making a game for his new Red Tails movie.
Or some Clone Wars era thing. And "air combat" doesn't necessarily mean "air combat sim." I gather that the recent "Secret Weapons over Normandy" was just a generic console flight combat game, so, hardly a sim.
Basically, don't hold your breath. The space/flight combat sim days are well behind us (even though I'd love a resurgence).
I didn't think about that, but right now flightsims aren't as widely popular. I think a SW space sim would sell better. Although if it's Clone Wars I would be PO'd.

I truly hope they make a new jedi knight game!!! I want Kyle Katarn back!!!
Honestly, I could do without yet another Jedi game. I'd prefer an FPS told from the perspective of ground troops.
Or if they could give me my ultimate game, where you play a smuggler in an open-world environment like the old Privateer game (only more developed), plus the ability to walk around in an FPS environment.
