The lights are on
Red Fly Studio's unnamed Darth Maul project was cancelled on June 24, 2011, a disappointing turn of events former Red Fly employees link to George Lucas' decision to sell Lucasfilm and LucasArts to Disney. The point of cancellation came right when Red Fly exited the prototyping phase for proper development of the game.
Red Fly's vision was much different than that of other Star Wars games, blending stealth with violent lightsaber combat. "We had heads flying everywhere," an ex-Red Fly employee told us. The video below gives a look at carnage Maul could unleash in this game, including a decapitation against a Mandalorian foe. Game Informer's Joe Juba joins me in this video for a brief discussion about the Darth Maul game.
