Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 3

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is an action-adventure game released in 2008. Originally, Lucasarts published it for PS2 and 3, Wii, and Xbox 360. The story acts as a bridge between Rebel Alliance and Galactic Civil War. An interesting thing about the game is that it brought a new character – Starkiller. He trained as a secret apprentice under Darth Vader. Despite being a bestseller (selling over 1 million copies in the month of the debut), the game ran into some criticism concerning all the technical issues that it faced.

Its sequel, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 was published in 2010. This game showed a more personal journey with the main character. Darth Vader tried to make a perfect clone of Starkiller, but things didn’t go as planned. The clone gained the man’s memories and realized he will be similarly betrayed. That’s when he escapes Vader and gets caught in the Galactic Civil War. This game, much like the previous one, faced some critics, including the short length of the game and an underwhelming story.

What happened to Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 3?

All though it was confirmed that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 3 was in development in the early 2010s, nothing ever came from it. There’s an interesting reason for that. While the game was in mid-development, Disney acquired LucasArts. As a result of the acquisition, the game trilogy never got a proper ending. That’s because when Disney came, they ordered all projects to be stopped and started again. However, some of them never got a new start.

Are things about to change?

Rumors of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 3 are flying around. It all started with Daniel Richman who is known for his Disney predictions. He told his patreons that a third part of the game is potentially back in development. Still, it is unclear whether this game will be canon or not.

Due to the big success of the first two games, a third following would be logical. If Lucasarts was still in charge, we’d see the third game along with others by now. Unfortunately, when Disney came along, a lot of the stuff that was in development stopped. Maybe that was for the better. Lucasarts, back in the day, used to collab with a lot of companies on their games. This brought competition which ensured that the games would be good. Major corporations like Electronic Arts is that they have little to no competition, which leads to them going just after the money.

How big is the hope?

Rumors like this need to be taken with a grain of salt. Disney’s contract with Electronic Arts will expire in the next couple of years. Them deciding to extend it seems kind of unlikely. Maybe with a new company in charge of making Star Wars games, we will get to see Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 3. Until then, we can only wait for official announcements.
