    Red Fly Studio has announced that they are continueing working on the in 2014 canceld Darth Maul video game codenamed 'Damage'. Here is the full statement from IGN:

    Red Fly Studio wants to breathe a new lease of life into its cancelled Darth Maul game.

    Speaking during a Reddit AMA, Red Fly developer Dan Borth answered some questions regarding what the game would be should the team manage to find a new home for it.


    According to Borth, the game will see a young Darth Maul – aged between “9 or 11” – through to adulthood and before the events of Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace.

    “We wanted to show what he went through to become a Sith,” writes Borth. “Showcase the torture The Emperor put him through. Show how you as the player would have made the same mistakes and ended up a Sith. […] Playing as a young Maul you would (hopefully) [make the player] feel his pain and rage as he was brutally exposed day by day by The Emperor.”

    Borth goes onto talk about the Jedi ethos, explaining it as “flawed.” The Jedi refuse to get involved in large disputes, yet they use their powers to spy on people or coerce them into doing what they want.

    “They are just like the Sith but don't admit it - the Sith admit it.”

    A fan then jokingly says “The Sith are making [a] game about the Sith.”

    The team is currently working on a “next-gen” demo to showcase Maul in action, with the hopes of pitching it to EA.

    “We have been burning a candle for this game since it was killed,” continues Borth, “[and we hope] we can get it turned back on again. If that is to happen, we need to approach EA with a demo that will impress them. I think we have that or are close to it. Still it is completely not up to us.”

    And for the die-hard fans of the prequels, there’s an idea that’s sure to be met with complete approval: “I would vote for an Easter egg where Maul kills Jar Jar over and over.”

    Wasn't this one the game with Darth Maul and Darth Talon, that George Lucas had already approved?

    Yes but the game was put on a hold and was later canceld when Disney accuiered LucasFilm they are planning on reviving it, and if Disney doesnt think the Legend characters work for the game they might do it with sequal trilogie characters.

    Sounds to me like a Prequel knock off of The Force Unleashed.

    Sounds like it has a lot of potential if done right, but just hearing the name of EA make me think it's not gonna happen.
