Julio Torres, the project lead for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, has shot down rumors regarding the third installment of series being canceled.
Instead, he said a third Force Unleashed game is being “figured out”.
Speaking with SciFiNow magazine, Torres said a third game in the series would have to be looked at considering how The Force Unleashed II ends and how it would fit in with the timeline.
“Well I can’t tell you how the game 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,” he said.
“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.”
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II releases on October 26 in the US and October 29 in the UK for DS, PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360.
A demo for the game is expected next week on PSN and XBL.
