The PlayStation 4 may be finally getting a reveal this coming Feb. 20th, but it looks like the system could eventually be receiving a brand-new "Star Wars" RPG from the studio Obsidian.
According to a report from RPS on Friday, Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart talked about how good of a pitch they believe the game is and where exactly the title falls into place for the "Star Wars" universe.
"I would say it’s within the top three pitches we’ve ever come up with. There’s a lot of different eras in 'Star Wars', and that’s what we would focus on.
"We pitched a between-Episode III and Episode IV game [to LucasArts]. Because we think that timeframe is super interesting. It’s the fall of the Republic, the extermination of the Jedi, it’s Obi-Wan going off and making sure Luke is OK.
"You have the Sith, but you have the extermination of all Force users except for very, very few. So it was an interesting time to set a game, and you know, Chris Avellone came up with a really cool story.
"We also latched onto it because it has elements people remember, but not the stories. It can just completely not involve [the movies]. It can tease them, but nothing else," Urquhart said.
Urquhart said the team is hoping for something to materialize between Disney and Lucas.
"It’s something we’re still hoping for, even with the Disney/Lucas stuff going on. It changes things a lot, but you know, we’re gonna push on it. I would say it’s within the top three pitches we’ve ever come up with.
"We really worked on it hard and distilled it down to these eight or ten pages that really sold the story and characters.
"Then we sold it off to LucasArts and got a call back later that day. They were like, ‘This seems really cool. We want to talk to you guys, like, tomorrow about it,'" Urquhart said.
