Secret LucasArts Xbox 360 shooter unveiled - Tomb Raider, Bulletstorm devs working on new AAA game

No, it probably isn't Star Wars: Battlefront 3 - and you, Mr Carrying A Candle For Free Radical, need to learn to let go. There's so much else to live for, besides scampering into battle alongside dozens of clone troopers and Jedi. An unannounced shooter, for instance. I don't know much about it yet, but the fact that LucasArts is developing the game alongside Star Wars 1313 suggests that it'll be another next generation console effort.

A system designer's portfolio (cheers Sidequesting) makes mention of a number of core somethings. Here they are: guns, Unreal Engine, Xbox 360 boxart, controllers. If you're wondering whether the game referred to is, in fact, Star Wars 1313, wonder no further - the latter is mentioned further down the page. Ergo, this is a separate project. (Next-Gen, Xbox 360)

If they release Battlefront, it'll immediately fail to live up to all the expectation that's accrued around it over the past half-decade. Same with Half-Life 3, I suspect.

hopefully not just another shooter...

Yeah because there have been soooooooo many Star Wars shooters. All I see are Lightsabers and Legos.

How bout they make a sequel to the greatest Star Wars game of all time and one of the greatest games of all time. Knights of the Old Republic 3 please

Don't worry it will happen one day, but just in case we should flood LA/Disney with requests for it. Before they get the idea to launch Knights of the New Republic with their new trilogy.

I want a new Tie Fighter game and sell me a special controller as a 'pack-in' toy like that stupid motion sensing skate board crap that came with the Tony Hawk game.

A new Republic Commando game would be nice too. Maybe have General Order 66 happen halfway through the game and some of the commandos try to obey it and some don't which splits the 2nd half of the campaign depending on what you choose. in 1. you try to keep a Jedi alive and get him to safety. in 2. you try to track down another Jedi that the traitors on your team are trying to protect.

There are four things it could be as far as FPS goes. Likely with Disney leading it. The title would be on more than just Xbox 360 platform.

https://www.lucasfilm.apply... has had hiring for Unannounced FPS title jobs for a little while with experience for PC, PS3, X360 and future console hardware. So I expect multiplatform. Take this job listing for example.

"As Core Engineer(FPS title), you will be the engine level specialist responsible for implementing cutting edge features and optimizations on current and Future Generation console and PC hardware."

Those four things could be.....
1. New IP AKA First Assault.
2. Star Wars Battlefront III
3. Jedi Knight III
4. Republic Commando 2

Just because Lucas Arts is involved everyone assumes it has to do with Star Wars. What if its a sequel to last gens Armed and Dangerous? A wacky 3rd person shooter that had crazy ass weapons like the Land Shark gun!

Sweet! Bet this is that Star Wars XBLA game that we heard about a while ago. I think Microsoft has taken to XBLA to really fill in the gap while their developers work on next gen games.

This is something that couldn't be done in previous generations. It means that we should see a very strong launch lineup.
