Next week Lucasarts will unveil a brand new Star Wars game franchise to get excited about. The official announcement will occur on Spike TV’s GTTV show next Thursday and will provide details on this currently in-development work, which we still have no idea which platform(s) it will be released on.

Geoff Keighley, host to Spike’s GTTV show, stated, “I am blown away by both the caliber of the team on this project and their bold vision for this new ‘Star Wars’ title. I can’t wait to introduce our viewers to this game and show off the footage that left my jaw on the floor when I first saw it” (Eurogamer).

Most recently for Star Wars and video games, Bioware’s Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO has been huge highlight for the Star Wars name as well as the Kinect Star Wars for the Xbox 360 which came out earlier this year. However, The Old Republic has been falling in its subscribers, especially considering all the recent MMOs scheduled to come out or MMOs that received or will receive notable updates: Tera, Planetside 2, Guild Wars 2, Elder Scrolls Online, and Tribes: Ascend to name some.
