So, I'm guessing this isn't the shooter LucasArts is hiring for, unless they're taking a decidedly lower budget approach than I thought.

It figures that they would make a multiplayer-focused FPS that wasn't Battlefront before making an actual Battlefront.

If so I hope there are bots or some kind of single player component, for their sake. MP-focused XBLA shooters tend not to do so hot.

But those don't have the Star Wars brand. Lucas thinks this is probably a meaningful variable.

There is supposed to be some COD-esque AAA FPS too, I believe.

That was one of the main online modes of Jedi Knight II.

It turned into Star Wars: Never Face Your Opponent because the backstab was so powerful.

Known possibilities? Well, this could be Star Wars: First Assault, hotly rumoured following a brace of trademark and domain registrations. It's said to be an Xbox Live Arcade project. Alternatively, how would you feel about an FPS for next gen consoles? Could be they're one and the same thing.

What are the chances of this being a spiritual successor of Republic Commando? I will do naughty things if it's the case.

There would be a Star Wars riff on FarmVille and a Call of Duty-style first-person shooter codenamed Trigger.

Some of the best COD multiplayer was on the Giant Bomb TNT where Jeff turned off all guns so everyone was running around knifing each other. Swap knives with light sabres, sorted. He also forgot to turn off grenades, probably not as easy to adapt. Unless... force... bombs?

I know the threads old but I have never even heard if this. Definitely helps ground the source in the kotaku article.

I think Microsoft took the original image down.

You can still find it if you search for Star Wars:First Assault.

I wouldn't put faith in any of this happening any time soon, LucasFilms had all of its departments turn full stop to put everything into SW VII projects. Even though it's years away, all bits of news coming out of the company are that everything once planned is being looked at again (the 3D films, the live-action TV series, the games, everything; even the Clone Wars TV series is being handled delicately despite them being well through Season 6 writing and probably production.) The LucasArts website still shows 1313, but it hasn't been updated in any way since 2012. Kotaku is pinning the rumor on the skipped PS4 showing (but guys, everybody couldn't show everything at one 2-hour event, lets not read into it too much every single time...) but there's been talk of Star Wars 1313 being in limbo for a while now. (I was just listening to a Rebel Force Radio podcast and they were putting bets that it is vaporware.) Star Wars First Assault is very likely in the same boat, don't be surprised if we never see either game.

Battlefront III has started development and been stopped several times because the quality of the external studios did not live up to the expectations of LucasArts and were missing milestones.

People have high expectations for Battlefront, not the least of which is vehicle-based gameplay.

Infantry-based FPS is still the heart of the Battlefront franchise though. Not doing vehicles right off the bat would mitigate the risks involved in making a full on Battlefront 3 but would still set up for it.

Star Wars-themed COD is perhaps the biggest potential moneymaker LucasArts missed out on in the last 5 years. Calling in a Jedi/Sith could be a scorestreak.

Their job postings imply it's a AAA game, which doesn't exactly mesh with an XBLA title.

Junior when you get out of those huggies, and your dad no longer has to clean the shit out of your tiny vagina, then you can tell me what's what.

No offense, heck I was a junior not too long ago.) and the shit quote was just something my cousin said he spends his days doing with his newborn, again nothing personal just wanted to share it because it disturbed me enough not to want kids.
