LucasArts set to Announce new Gaming Franchise on Spike
Some interesting news from the frontlines that LucasArts will be revealing their new gaming franchise come this Thursday (May 31, 2012) on Spike TV. I’m not really sure what to expect here, as there is a lot of speculation that it will revolve around this new “1313” we have been hearing about so much. In Tuggie’s recent update, he is speculating that this new game will be built to hype up the new TV series, “Underworld” which may possibly relove around smuggling and bounty hunters, which would of course would most likely include, the infamous Jango and Boba Fett. This is a neat theory which would have many possibilites in my opinion. Check out Tuggie’s new update below!
From Spike TV:
Calling all Jedi, Sith lords and Bounty Hunters! Spike TV and Lucasfilm today announced that the network will be airing all six of the “Star Wars” movies throughout Memorial Day weekend beginning tonight, Friday May 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The movie marathon airs just days before Spike TV’s plans to exclusively unveil the newest game franchise in the “Star Wars” universe, which will debut at the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo. A first look at this top secret project will be revealed on Thursday, May 31, as a part of the pre-E3 episode of Spike’s hit video game show “GTTV,” followed by the live world gameplay premiere of this new “Star Wars” franchise during the network’s “E3 All Access Live” primetime special on June 4 at 10:00 pm ET/7:00 pm PT.
I have also heard rumors that it may be Jedi Knight 3 or even Republic Commando 2 but at this point who knows. I think I am definitely in agreeance with Tuggie, that we will not be seeing Battlefront 3 this year as all of their effors will be centered towards their new IP.
