LucasArts and Spike TV are partnering to announce the “next big Star Wars game franchise” at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), scheduled to take place in Los Angeles during the first week of June.
For some time now, fans have been wondering what LucasArts has had up its sleeve. Two high-profile Star Wars games have been released in the last year, but both were developed by third-party studios. Star Wars: The Old Republic and Kinect Star Wars each catered to specific markets: MMO players and Kinect for Xbox 360 owners, respectively. It’s been quite some time since Star Wars fans have had a major game franchise to get excited about.
Fans will get their first glimpse at the game on Thursday, May 31 during GameTrailers TV (GTTV). The full details, however, will be revealed on Monday, June 4 at 10:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. PT on Spike TV. The game’s creative director will be on hand to unveil actual gameplay footage and answer fan questions in real-time.
“I am blown away by both the caliber of the team on this project and their bold vision for this new ‘Star Wars’ title,” said Geoff Keighley, Host and Executive Producer, Spike TV’s “E3 All Access Live” special. “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.”
