There's room in the Star Wars timeline to solidify the canon, says project lead.
Despite rumours that newly appointed LucasArts president Paul Meegan had cancelled development of Star Wars The Force Unleashed III, Force Unleashed II project lead Julio Torres has said there is a place in the Star Wars timeline for a third game in the series.
"Well I can't tell you how the game [TFU2] ends because that would ruin it for you, but I can tell you that the timeframe for The Force Unleashed and TFU II is about a year, and there's still, between that and Episode IV, a couple of years for us to play with," Torres told SciFiNow magazine when asked if we'd see more of Starkiller (the secret apprentice) in the future.
Torres added: "So that means no matter how the game ends for Starkiller and Vader for TFU II, we still have some time to figure out how we solidify the canon so that everything makes sense for IV.
"Obviously, if that were to be exposed, it would most likely be a TFU III. I'm just afraid I can't share what that could be yet because we're still figuring it out. I cautioned that ... the key is that, that time is still left. If we had finished TFU II and we were up against the timeframe, we would probably have been done."
