LucasArts has registered several new domains linked to its Star Wars property. The domains, all variations on the name Star Wars: Identities, were registered on November 7th but don’t seem to have been set up by the studio’s games wing so a certain amount speculation is required to reach the following conclusions that some are touting.
LucasArts is known to be heavily into the early development of something, they posted job adverts several months ago. There have been heavy rumours about a new space combat game, similar (I hope) to the X-Wing and TIE Fighter games of the ’90s. On top of that, there’s the Battlefront game which was seemingly abandoned when Pandemic closed up shop. Or it could be something totally different.
The identities monicker may hint at character creation so will we see a new Star Wars action RPG? Is this all just in preparation for another cartoon outing or perhaps the much rumoured Star Wars TV project? Perhaps it’s going to be the marketing site for when George Lucas announces the trilogy re-release in which he digitally removes everyone’s faces and swaps them for blinking teddy bears?
There’s no telling for sure but I’m always up for a little speculation about Star Wars, so what do you think it might be and what would you like it to be?
