The lights are on
Recently, Austin-based developer Red Fly Studios was forced to lay off around 30 employees due to a "high-profile project" that had been canceled. Now, it appears that project maybe have been a Star Wars game.Internet sleuth Superannuation is once again on the case, and has tracked down an online resume by a former Red Fly employee Patrick Doran. Doran was an artist at Red Fly. On his resume, the most current entry reads as follows:"Environment Artist (January-June 2011) for next-gen Star Wars title"Doran lists his time of employment at Red Fly from May 2008-June 2011, suggesting that the project that was canceled was, in fact, a Star Wars game.
Red Fly had most recently done the Wii version of Thor: God of Thunder and is best known for the cult hit Mushroom Men (pictured above).

Well they made pretty bad games but still layoffs are always bad.
So sad...that's a lot of time and effort that could have gone into another game. Not to mention the money...
I would have liked to see another good Star Wars game come out. I have many friends that will mourn this...
Could it have been Star Wars Battlefront 3? Or would this company not make a game like that?
Mushroom Men was solid, sad to see this company take a risk and have to make commercial games to make up for it. Hope those guys find jobs soon.
i hope this wasn't battlefront 3...
More Mushroom Men PLEASE! ! !
I want KOTOR 3 (that picks up after the events of the 2nd game), Battlefront 3, Republic Commando 2 and Jedi Knight 3.
Hope it was the kinect version lol; (oh how I dream) *sigh*
Battlefront 3 Please.
Lucasarts needs to release a great next-gen game like a star wars battlefront III.
I sure hope Battlefront 3 wasn't that canceled project... I REALLY want to see that game get made.
Let's all threaten to strangle kittens unless they make a Star Wars Battlefront 3 ^^
