    Sooooo.....what is it exactly? The trademark filing suggests a video game, but also seems to suggest a MASSIVE multimedia campaign - books, games, movies...you name it. Now, that's likely just covering all possible bases, but what fun to speculate. CT-1313 apparently was a codename used by Boba in one of the crappy EU things. One thing is for sure, they haven't had a massive coordinated campaign for anything since Force Unleashed and are about due. Thoughts?

    That was the massive game release LA had, which the whole company in one way or another was involved with - there were novelizations, comics, toys, online stuff....much like the hoopla over Shadows of the Empire if you remember that circus.

    I really hope its another force unleashed game. there hasnt been any news though about one being developed. A movie is doubtful though since that idiot george lucas said he is done filming any star wars films

    I'm thinking it's a release date from an unspecified month in 2013.

    Jan 3, 2013 if it's a date. Wasn't one iteration of the live action show supposed to be centered around Boba? That'd be another possibility. I'd say there's not enough to go on to come up with any other conclusions yet.

    All I'll say is hopefully its something a lot better than the stuff we've seen lately...

    My monies on another crappy video game centered on Jedi-God mode play.

    If it's not an XWing VS. Tie Fighter remake, I'll pass.

    It's either a new game or maybe another spin-off TV series.

    Yes, you're probably right - 13/13, so Smarch 2013. Lousy Smarch weather....:darnkids

    Yeah, but there's absolutely no way the live show is ever going to get made so I think that's out.

    Yeah. Probably. Like how in ESB Yoda, with all his experience with the Force makes some signifcant effort to lift an Xwing out of the swamp like 50 feet from him.

    And in one of these lame, power inflated games, a guy pulls a Star Destroyer down from orbit between killing some guys. :rolleyes

    I speculate that it could be a CGI-animated "movie" that ends the animated Clone Wars TV-series? From the beginning of the TV-series, people have speculated that Asohka has to die when the series ends, and this would be it.

    1313 can reference only one thing...

    1313 Mockingbird Lane


    Clearly it's going to be a mashup of SW and The Munsters.

    See micdavis' earlier comment.

    Unless, of course, it's a hybrid RPG offering a choice between first and over-the-shoulder view with as robust a flight/space combat sim side to it, featuring a main character who is a smuggler and deals with the Star Wars underworld throughout the game. Then I'll be interested. :)

    Star Wars Video Game Series Announcement of the Day - TDW Geeks

    According to Spike TV’s Geoff Keighley, LucasArts is preparing to launch yet another game based on its flagship franchise, and it’s going to be a doozy.

    “I am blown away by both the caliber of the team on this project and their bold vision for this new Star Wars title,” Keighley said. “I can’t wait to introduce our viewers to this game and show off the footage that left my jaw on the floor when I first saw it.”


    Pretty vague stuff still....

    Hmm. Flagship franchise? What on earth could that be?

    I sure hope it's not another Kinect Clone Wars POS. And if it's yet another TFU game, I'd pass for sure.

    Now, Battlefront 3... that I'd buy in a heartbeat. Or KotOR III, but that seems unlikely at best.

    Given that the cast is for the most part still alive and working, it would be cool to get a decent, modern game based on the original 3 Star Wars films.
    Which won't happen, I know.

    I'm expecting Battlefront 3. With the success of CoD and Battlefield they'd be nuts not to. They're overdue.

    It would be pretty awesome if it were based on Battlefield 3.

    But I would also be insanely happy with a re-boot of X-wing Vs TIE Fighter.

    a rpg based on jarjar obviously!

    its gonna be an mmo, with the only playable characters are gungans, and your main focus is to impersonate jarjar as good as possible

    "Flagship franchise" means Star Wars as in Lucasfilm's flagship franchise. Not LucasArts' flagship franchise, of which they don't have any anymore.

    Today there was a blog from SW.com pointing to a SpikeTV article with a bit more details. Nothing about witch partner in the main text, but in the footer it mentions various copyrights, one of which was Lego, so that's my guess, a new Lego SW game.

    Spike TV Launches Into Hyperspace With The World Premire Of The Next Big

    [edit] checking again tonite, the Lego part is now gone. Maybe it was a mistake or pulled for obvious reasons.

    No one can keep secrets these days, yet this seems like it'll last til the official announcement.

    A lego game isn't worth a big announcement.

    You'd think if they're typing it to E4-6 on spike though, that it'd have to do with the OT and not the PT or clone wars....

    Don't hold your breath. These days the OT stuff is pretty much dead outside of MAYBE a Battlefront game, but those were pretty lame.

    I love the Battlefront games, but I agree, it's not going to be the OT, especially with the "fresh new vision" or whatever the verbiage is. Sounds more like an RPG type title to me, although that's based on nothing.

    There is speculation that the game would be starring Boba Fett. The reason is that Boba Fett used the alias "CT - 1313" in the novel “Boba Fett: Maze of Deception”.

    Well, Anthony Daniels just posted this on Twitter..."@ADaniels3PO: 3 years drama school, 40 years in the business & I end up a VO in the latest Star Wars Lego production! Who's a lucky droid then! LOL a lot!"
    So, I guess that Lego rumor could remain a possibility.

    The LEGO SW games are very fun to play with kids, I don't know why everyone knocks them. I don't see a big announcement for those because it's probably a sure thing that they will make more. This is a Force Unleashed kind of announcement. If it's not a new X-Wing/TIE Fighter, Republic Commando 2, or a Dark Forces game I will be underwhelmed.

    I have no doubt they're doing another lego game but the way Spike was hyping it as something massive I figure it is something they hope to do well. I know the bioware online SW game isn't doing well.

    Geez, I hope it's not Lego. What else could they even do for the Lego games? They did PT. They did OT. Then they did both. Then they did CW. I mean, honestly, what's left?

    TFU II was awful, so I'm hoping that line's dead.

    Battlefront, Republic Commando, or an X-Wing game would be fantastic. Other than that...

    Don`t think it`s Lego...we already know there`s another Lego short feature film similar to the Padawan Menace nearing release, so I`m guessing that`s the Lego reference.
    BF3É I`d be surprised, although it`s the only thing I`d actually be looking forward to. The current management at LA killed a basically ready for release BF3, and they`d look like idiots if they then turn around and sink a ton of the company`s money into the same game.
    My money is on something TFU-like sadly.

    If it is BF3, I'll be thrilled. If it's TFU3, I'll likely pick it up. Unless it's some form of FPS, or a new TFU, I'll probably pass. My attention span doesn't hold for most games.

    I'm just hoping if it's a new The Force Unleashed game it lasts longer than the last one. TFU2 was just too short, even though I liked the story and ending.
