LucasArts will show some Star Wars love at San Diego Comic Con


The San Diego Comic Con is next week, and there’s bound to be more than a few video game announcements worth paying attention to. Chief among them, maybe: what’s LucasArts up to? The company has sent an e-mail with the phrase that pays: “There will be several world exclusive announcements at the Star Wars Spectacular keynote.”

Initial guesses include a re-relase of those X-Wing and TIE Fighter games, which, again, I have never played; an update on Star Wars: The Old Republic, BioWare’s latest version of the same game it’s been making for several years now; or something entirely new.

Fact: I have only seen two Star Wars movies: The Phantom Menace and Revenge of the Sith. Needless to say the whole franchise could disappear from the face of the Earth and I wouldn’t miss a beat.
