Sadly, development on the much anticipated sequel to Jedi Knight, Obi-Wan, has been put on quite permanent hold. LucasArts had this to say:
"Following an extensive review of the project and a great deal of deliberation, LucasArts Entertainment Company has ceased development of Star Wars: Obi-Wan for the PC. The expected breadth and scope of the Obi-Wan project could not be met given limitations of technology and the company's recently heightened quality standards. LucasArts is now planning to bring the game and its assets to a next-generation console platform. Further announcements will be made in this regard next year.
LucasArts remains fully committed to developing games for the PC platform, as evidenced by its current development alliances with Verant Interactive, BioWare Corporation, and other soon to be announced projects.
We wish to thank our fans for their continued support through this process and assure them that our number one goal is to provide them with high quality, fun games."
I'm sure petitions will be up by tomorrow [the LEC community is a big group of petitioners - maybe Al or George could use them =)].
So, Mixnmojo hopes that Manny Cavalera will give Obi-Wan a good ride to the ninth underworld.
