The project lead on Star Wars title The Force Unleashed 2, Julio Torres, has laid to rest rumours that a third in the franchise had been cancelled.
Torres recently explained to magazine SciFiNow
when quizzed on whether the game's protagonist, Starkiller, would be seeing any more outings after The Force Unleashed 2
that although he could not say how the game ends for fear of not wanting to spoil the game for eager fans, he did say that:
"No matter how the game ends for Starkiller and Vader for TFU II
, we still have some time to figure out how we solidify the canon so that everything makes sense for IV
"Obviously, if that were to be exposed, it would most likely be a TFU III
. I?m just afraid I can?t share what that could be yet because we?re still figuring it out."
We had previously reported back in August that the franchise was due to be cancelled
following the appointment of new president of LucasArts Paul Meegan but why any company would can a massively popular franchise in the height of its popularity would be anyone's guess.
Fingers crossed this means The Force Unleashed 3
is back on!
