New Star Wars video game franchise coming soon

Lucas Arts is currently working on a brand spanking new Star Wars video game franchise.

Spike TV got early access to the game and will be showing it off during an episode of Game Trailers TV. The episode will air on Thursday, May 31 and will provide a glimpse at what the team has been working on.

GTTV Host Geoff Keighley seems excited about it, he had this to say:

“I am blown away by both the caliber of the team on this project and their bold vision for this new ‘Star Wars’ title.”

“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.”

I can’t say that I am all that excited for a “new franchise” set in the Star Wars universe. Actually, it is the “new” part that has me concerned.  “New” hasn’t exactly worked out that well for Star Wars games lately. Remember, Star Wars Kinect was new and that game turned Boba Fett into a dancing club kid.

I would love to see Lucas Arts just do what so many of their fans have requested for years and that is to give us new games from their old franchises. Why not make a new Battlefront, X-wing/Tie-Fighter or Republic Commando? Is that asking too much?

Well anyway, additional information about the new franchise will be released on Monday, June 4th during Spike TV’s E3 All Access Live.
