A strategy game, Star Wars: Outpost, was in the works at Lucasarts just before Disney wrote a $4.05 billion check for the company.

Canceled Star Wars: Outpost was a mix of EVE Online and Settlers of Catan

At which point Lucasarts said “Whoo Hoo! Hookers and blow time!” Just kidding. Please don’t hate.

Silliness aside, Star Wars: Outpost was 90% finished, according to a Eurogamer source, and gameplay was a mix between Settlers of Catan and EVE Online.

In development at Lucasarts for two years with a team of 30, it was to be released on PC and mobile. Footage of the game has been posted by the project’s art director and you can watch it below. It’s rather short

Artwork for the canceled game first appeared back in January.
