Nevertheless, years earlier than both recreation had even entered improvement, LucasArts was producing a darkish, technically gorgeous third individual journey recreation referred to as Star Wars: 1313.

After a number of years of improvement points within the early 2000’s, Blizzard in the end made the choice to cancel this third individual motion recreation set within the StarCraft universe.
Maybe the know-how on the time was not proficient sufficient for the formidable imaginative and prescient of the sport or Blizzard in the end felt it was too giant a style departure from the same old RTS model of the collection, however the demise of this recreation nonetheless stings for a lot of followers.
