Because then you can put it on Kickstarter and raise millions of dollars and kick the release date can down the road a few years.

You still won't have to release it but at least you'll have some serious fun money while you trickle out the occasional teaser.

Maybe they could just fold all of this in as a new feature/storyline in Star Citizen.

I was so excited for that one as well.

Also EA is leaving money on the table by not just taking the 1313 assets, retooling, upgrading and then swapping a Boba Fett story out for the Mandalorian.

Give us a Mando game goddamnit.

I'm not a fan of Star Wars or anything but that looks like a pretty sweet game.

Fallen Order was really good.

Squadrons was like reading a technical textbook.... and then taking a test on what you just read

I don't understand why blogs report on cancelled games.
It's a total waste of time.

I mean, it's Star Wars Uncharted, from everything that's been shown of it. It probably would have been fun enough but I don't really think it's the end of the world we didn't get it.

Every single-player, non-starship-battle Star Wars game seems to go that way. Fallen Order is the same thing, only with a half-trained Jedi instead of a bounty hunter. Lots of run/jump/climb stuff. It's like playing Tomb Raider / Uncharted / Assassin's Creed but with a Star Wars reskin. It's lazy game design if you ask me.

I should hope a Din Djarin game isn't just Assassin's Creed with a Mandalorian.

It works generally in some games like SW Bounty Hunter

Someone I know was working on that when it was canned, he was pretty upset about it.
It was apparently going to be a real good one, but that's the way the game industry goes.
I bet someone's releasing stuff just to show the world the cool bits they did, since it's pretty depressing to make something awesome that's doomed to never be seen.

Game cancellations are super common though, knew folks who'd worked in decade long stretches without one of their games seeing the light of day, and some of my favourite games got canned while still in development.

I remember one that was going to be basically mass-effect meets star control that I'm still choked about. that one was going to rock.

at my old studio maybe half-ish of the games made it to the light of day, usually they were canned to funnel resources into games that were closer to being completed, or whose success was more vital to the studio staying open.


/wrote a bit more than I expected there.

Fallen Order is more Dark Souls+Metroid, but point taken, though really you can extend it to the entire industry. Everyone is copying everyone to one extent or another. I personally find Fallen Order's stew of influences way more interesting as games to play than Uncharted, which is why 1313 was never particularly appealing to me. That and I've never cared about Boba Fett, ever, and still think bringing him back to life was one of the lamest things both the original EU and the new continuity have done.

Looks like an Uncharted/Tomb Raider game set in Star Wars universe.  Could have been great.

Why aren't there full replacement mods for say, Star Wars or Star Trek or Babylon 5 vessels in games like Elite Dangerous?

Stupid multiplayer.

In the early days of SC kickstarter during the avalanche of feature leap, I remember that full modding was supposed to be on the table, as was private servers.  Unfortunately I think it's pretty likely most of the early stuff they were talking about went by the wayside to instead have the persistent universe MMO when the funding exploded.

I hold out a miniscule hope that it's something they'll implement after they get the MMO going (whenever that is) but I really don't think it's going to happen anymore.

I grew up playing games where they just took a Japanese game, swapped out the sprite for a commercial product like the Noid or something, and shipped it.

Most of the time it was better than when they hired a company on the cheap to make it. I'd play Mando Creed. Who needs parkour though when you've got a jetpack

Same reason why a supposedly bad ass bounty hunter would show up at the big fight and then go out like a biatch.

It would need to be a VR headset game where the only way to win is to never take off the headset.

buntz: Fallen Order was really good.

Squadrons was like reading a technical textbook.... and then taking a test on what you just read


Fallen Order gameplay was pretty simple, but fun. And the worlds were gorgeous.

The dialogue was as bad as it was unskippable. And Cal, having learned the consequences of seeking out younglings in a force vision, having told none of that to the rest of the crew, but saying "fark it, let's give up and go party" and the crew just accepting that and cheering, then boom! roll credits...

That was the dumbest end to a game in the history of gaming. They couldn't put in a line or two where Cal explains the consequences? Just "Let go and let the force"? And the crew was totally cool with that? Dumb and stupid and dumb.

And, for the love of god, just let me sit in the copilot seat. Why do I have to wait to land? Just let me sit. I want to sit and just land.

Looks like Cyberpunk 2077 in a Star wars setting.

Is it actually possible legit or heavily modded fallen order

There is nothing more that I would want than a Star Wars conversion of SC, but that's likely not going to happen (not the least of which being that SW is now a Disney property which it wasn't in the Freelancer days), and secondly, the whole backend architecture isn't going to be available for modders so modders would be limited at best with what they can do.

I hope they sell the engine/tools at some point in the far future so we can have more full-blown universes

This is what I was thinking. It looks suspiciously similar to Fallen Order.
