Darth Vader gets his own game
George Lucas himself may be done with Star Wars films, but LucasArts is apparently working on a title based on Darth Vader, while a new Indiana Jones game is still in progress.
According to a New York Times article about the current state of the company, Haden Blackman, project lead on a forthcoming Star Wars game, recently outlined to directors "a new storyline that delved deeper into Darth Vader's history".
The NY Times piece also mentions Indiana Jones, noting how vice president of product development Peter Hirschmann "gleefully explained how researchers had tracked down images of San Francisco buildings from 1915 for the future Indiana Jones game".
There's no discussion of when either of those games will be released, but the piece does maintain that LucasArts wants to be known as more than just "the 'Star Wars' game company", with more original titles on the way along the lines of last year's Mercenaries.
