    SUMMARY:
    1313 was an open-world video game that Lucasfilms was making until Disney shut it down in 2014. You would play as an unidentified bounty hunter killed by Boba Fett. Following this exchange, you would become Boba Fett and get to explore the lower levels as Coruscant and get to use many “exotic” weapons as you uncover a criminal conspiracy. The game would have been centered around human skills/combat, not force skills. It was supposed to be tied into the live-action TV show Star Wars: Underground which Disney also shut down. Jesse Harlin said he was making music he was “creating music for street performers who would play in back alleys, there were Star Wars dance clubs.”

    Colin Campbell and Dominic Robillard were going for a mature rating on this game - different from the kid-friendly Disney series productions (minus Mando.) Contrary to popular belief, the M rating is not because of gore, but rather because of the motivations of the characters and the world itself (I assume because of clubs/drinking and such.)


    Jason Schreier says that despite the rumors, 1313 will most likely not be restored as the game is eight years old along with the team. The Boba series and the Mando hype have given the video game more attention and there have been rumors of a reboot. It has also sparked conversations about whether Disney is too kid-friendly and destroying the EU and stories that have less to do with the force.


    On the other hand, the OT was made for kids and had a lot of kid attention. As the Star Wars universe has progressed along with the EU, the darker part of Star Wars has been revealed more. Even in the OT, while it is fun action for kids, there are darker meanings there as well.

    PERSONAL/OPINIONS:
    Personally, I would love to see 1313 rebooted. I love the darker part of SW and I would love an open-world video game. I think Disney could do a lot with video games, but there is the danger that they make it for kids. While I think that is important, we all have tried to use the force or pretended to live on Corasant and video games is an amazing way to get there. The darker parts of that world are super important to the SW universe and I would love to explore that. Darker motivations along with the underworld life. At the same time, it could be dangerous or exclusive for kids. Many people think there should not be a darker part of SW. Is it worth their resources?


    What do you guys think? Has Disney gotten too PC? Should 1313 be rebooted? Or would you like another type of open-world game? Give me your thoughts or else it’ll be super awk if no one responds haha plus I’m super curious.

    It's not so much that the game is old it's the code that's old and the team no longer exists. They would have to basically make a new game and get new people. That said, there have been a lot of rumors of a Kotor remake/remaster and I never thought that would happen so who knows. I'm confused on what political correctness as to do with this? Disney has no say in video game development.

    Yes, that and republic commando. I would cry. Currently, my tear ducts are blocked but I would find a way. Yes while EA does do that (I'm bad with this stuff) I think it was Disney that shut down 1313 and or Lucasarts. I just wanna know why. PC might be the wrong word, but I mean blocking out the ugly parts of SW/the darker parts. Apologies for any confusion haha.

    Remake no (since the game never was released), now another game that is based off of 1313 ideas, sure!​

    to quote lady gaga: talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show-stopping, spectacular, never the same, totally unique, completely not ever been done before, unafraid to reference or not reference, put it in a blender, [poop] on it, vomit on it, eat it, give birth to it.

    I want it so bad it hurts or at least something based on it.

    the lack of completion is disturbing. Obviously, it needs a lot of updating if not a total remake, but the idea should be rebooted. It would make sm money and people would love it.
    --- Double Post Merged, May 18, 2021 ---
    im happy with either - any open world game that shows the darkness of SW would be amazing

    You are most welcome.

    I've seen ALOT of 1313 concept art and there were a couple of environments that were definitely NOT Coruscant.
    As far as I can remember; aside from the Tatooine Prologue, that's all they were.... concepts.

    "IGN reports that the person seen in the E3 2012 demo of Star Wars 1313 was a placeholder protagonist, and instead the game would have focused on the bounty hunter Boba Fett. Working for Jabba the Hutt, Fett would have begun on Tatooine in a prologue without his familiar Mandalorian armor; over the course of the game, his outfit would have come to resemble the Fett we all know. Fett would have visited both layers 1313 and 1314 of the Coruscant underworld, with the former being a "corrupt metropolis controlled by crime families" and the latter being a neglected slum. "


    Also, I remember the "THIS A Boba Fett GAME NOW!" announcement being not well received.

    1313 sounds awesome. We did, thankfully, get a glimpse of it in the S7 of TCW (from Disney, BTW). It would have been a spiritual successor to TFU, in my opinion. What makes any of this, "PC," though?

    Open-world games sound awesome. You have some replies, so I am glad that it's not super awk.

    Yeah realizing PC isnt the right word - jsut Disney doesnt always like the darknesss of SW which ive always been drawn to (maybe not a good thing lol.) Like why would they shut down 1313? And yes seeing the underworld was fun, just hoping for a LOT more of it and more EU.

    Yes glad im not super awk...online anyway...

    I love that second photo - thanks so much for sharing.

    I dont remember this nor have a read anything on the reception of it - why was that not well-reveiced? Did they want the player to be their own customizable character?

    I do think Disney Lucasfilm are too PC, but I don't think that's the reason why we probably won't be getting 1313 any time soon.

    I couldn't agree more. For me most of the best SW stories are the darker, more morally grey ones. Probably because the SW I grew up with was Legends books and games :)

    That was not enough to satisfy my appetite.

    Because someone was lying when they tried to sell us on 1313 being Boba-Fett centric from its conception. No. It wasn't. - It's ironic, they did the same with Sequel Trilogy at the end.... they claimed Palpatine was the big bad, ALL along. If anyone believes THAT.... I have a condo for sale in Chernobyl.

    That would be my guess. What I do remember most is that the mood was pretty sour on using recycled Legacy characters.

    I considered creating a dozen socks, just so I could like your post 12 more times than I already have.
