Star Wars as a gaming franchise has had its fair share of bad luck. Once Disney acquired the Star Wars licence, whispers of games such as Star Wars 1313 being canned started to surface. EA swooped in and managed to bag the rights to make, for the foreseeable future, all Star Wars games. EA currently claim to have 3 Star Wars projects on the go, each being made by sister companies Bioware, Visceral and DICE. To our surprise another Star Wars game has found itself in the realms of “games that shall never be.”
The potential Darth Maul game was originally being made behind closed doors by Red Fly Studios and below is some concept art.

The Darth Maul project started way back in 2010 at Red Fly Studios, the developer responsible for the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. Interestingly there is a video of a Darth Maul game that seems to be working on the same engine that made the Force Unleashed.
One thing that strikes me about all these potentially great Star Wars, that never see the light of day, is how a game like Star Wars kinect; which has a very limited audience gets the green light. However, the Darth Maul game that has plenty of appeal because of its chief character (and would be released across all platforms), gets canned. A sad day for Star Wars fans everywhere.
