There are plenty of great ideas that fans would likely to see played out within the Star Wars franchise. We’ve seen plenty of cancelled video game projects in the past for Star Wars and today we are finding out about two other projects that were ultimately scrapped.
DidYouKnowGaming is a YouTube channel that tends to bring out information from the video game industry. The latest video showcases two cancelled Star Wars video game titles that were previously in the works by developers Factor 5 and the internal team at LucasArts.
We highly recommend checking out the video posted above that goes over the video game cancellations in detail. You’ve likely recall Factor 5, this is a development team that has brought out the popular Rogue Squadron video games, where players joined the Rebel Alliance to take part in a variety of battles from the franchise.
One of the video game titles that was tossed around for development was another installment to the Rogue Squadron series. However, unlike the previous installments, players would be taking the role of Darth Vader as you fought against the Rebel Alliance.
Another title that was in the works from LucasArts didn’t have a title, but would have players taking the role of Chewbacca. It’s within this video game that players would see how Chewbacca and Han Solo met, taking place somewhere between the movies Episode III and Episode IV.
Unfortunately, George Lucas was not satisfied with the project and shut it down leaving the development team to focus on a different project, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.
