Disney cancels Star Wars: Attack Squadrons

Disney bought Lucasfilm for $4 billion. The Mickey Mouse company acquired with that movement the whole Star Wars universe and Lucas Arts. Since then, Disney has cancelled multiple videogames projects based on the galactic franchise, Star Wars: Attack Squadrons is the last one.

Star Wars: Attack Squadrons was a free multiplayer action game slated to release this year. Attack Squadrons invited the player to pilot the different ships appeared on the license over the years. 16 players would have combat in 3 three different game modes (Deathmatch, Team Deatchmatch and Protect the base) driving customized ships, but Disney has preferred to canned it.

If memory serves, we just got the EA games as a representation of videogames based on this prolific universe.

The team behind Star Wars: Attack Squadrons has issued the following statement upon this cancelation:

We want to thank all of the fans who participated in the closed beta of Star Wars: Attack Squadrons. After much consideration, we have decided to cease development so that we can focus on other Star Wars game experiences. We truly appreciate the time you spent engaging in the beta.

Thanks, Star Wars: Attack Squadrons website.
