Next Star Wars game is major LucasArts franchise

New Star Wars game is big

LucasArts is banking big on its next Star Wars game, writes Stephanie Kang of the Wall Street Journal. Without any new films to generate profit, LucasArts is preparing a massive marketing and merchandising campaign for the title, the release of which is being timed to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the first film. Hasbro will produce an accompanying line of toy vehicles and action figures. The game's setting will be the considerable gap between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, during which the Rebellion was born and the Empire established. UPDATE: Could this be who's working on it? LucasArts has signed Timesplitters creator Free Radical Design for an unknown next-gen console title. The one flaw in this theory is Haze, an FPS which Free Radical is already hammering on for 2007.

    Game Style

    Here's to hoping it is in the style of the Jedi Knight series. I don't mind stories like KOTOR but I want to swing my own saber thank you.

    I'll take the other style

    I prefer the KOTOR style. To me it seems like more strategy and less button mashing.
