Kotaku and other sites are reporting a huge, open-world Star Wars game that was in production now isn't.  The mourning!

Unreleased Star Wars Game Feature: Ragtag

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 27, 2017


Kotaku posted a really swell article called The Collapse Of Visceral's Ambitious Star Wars Game.  The game was one in which you played a Han Solo-gone-wrong type in the pre-Star Wars time frame, and the demos looked gorgeous.  The feature goes in to detail about what the game was - and wasn't - and how deadlines and budgets are a far deadlier enemy than the Galactic Empire.  Check it out.

iOS Star Wars Journeys: The Phantom Menace Launches Today

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 1, 2014

Disney gave us a hands-on heavily embargoed look at a new Star Wars app last week called Star Wars Journeys: The Phantom Menace.
