Looks like E3 will be seeing a new Star Wars franchise, but an early reveal is scheduled for next week, on May 31. Could this have anything to do with the recent "Star Wars 1313" trademark Lucasfilm filed? We're betting on "yes."
Still, we haven't heard anything about the new series yet (above image is from TOR), so LucasArts definitely knows how to keep a secret. The reveal will be an exclusive deal for SpikeTV, so they'll be the ones airing the big announcement on Thursday, when they visit LucasArts' San Francisco studio for a behind-the-scenes tour. Gameplay won't premiere until June 4, the unofficial first day of E3.
Exciting stuff, right? We're about due for a new Star Wars game, and I know I'm not the only one hoping to see a return to something along the lines of Republic Commando. Nothing against Forcies or anything.
