Disney Lets Go of 1313 Trademark

Ever since Disney purchased the rights to Star Wars from George Lucas, they have effectively done everything and anything to flush out the old regime. First they laid off the entire staff at LucasArts, then they shut down The Clone Wars animated series mid-season, and now they have finally released their trademark hold on Star Wars 1313.

Disney did not renew the trademark when it was up this past December, and now the US Patent and Trademark Office lists Star Wars 1313 as "Abandoned because no Statement of Use or Extension Request timely filed after Notice of Allowance was issued."

Since EA now holds the Star Wars franchise for gaming, it's always possible they'll resurrect the title and continue working on the property, but no one should count on that. All we can do is hope that Battlefront isn't as colossal of a train wreck as Battlefield 4.

With Disney and EA at the helm Star Wars is fucked and d00med. As a Star Wars fan it's best to shut your eyes and ears and just reminisce some of the more decent classic LucasArts Star Wars games (X-Wing/TIE series, the Jedi Knights and Dark Forces).

Many Star Wars fans have had years to slowly accept this as fact. The genre (gaming wise) hasn't been alive and thriving for many years now! The movies/TV series have been debatable.

Sad what has happened. The CLone Wars was also pretty popular. Disney could make some good cash if they just invest it wisely.

Like how Paramount trashed the Star Trek scene....all cheap , rushed , poor games .
