LucasFilm Registered Several Domains For Potential Star Wars Games This Week

Officially, neither Electronic Arts or Disney has released any specific information about the upcoming Star Wars games that are being developed as a result of the recently signed deal between the two companies — other than to indirectly point out that none of them are being developed for the Wii U. Unofficially, a whole list of recently registered Star Wars-related domain names may have provided a clue as to possible titles for many of the unannounced games.

As discovered by Fusible, LucasFilm registered nine different Star Wars domains on May 6, 2013 — the exact same day that Electronic Arts announced their licensing deal with Disney. If any of the domains have anything to do with the deal, we could soon get announcements for Star Wars games with the following subtitles: Gungan Frontier, Order 67, Alliance, Rebels, Wolf Pack, and (my personal favorite) Wookiee Hunters.

The total list of new LucasFilm domain registrations reads:

  • gunganfrontier2.com
  • gunganfrontier3.com
  • gunganfrontier4.com
  • order67.net
  • starwarsalliance.com
  • starwarsrebels.com
  • starwarswolfpack.com
  • wolfpackadventures.net
  • wookieehunters.com

It is important to keep in mind that there is the strong possibility that not all of these domains (or even any of them) will result in actual Star Wars games developed by Electronic Arts. It is just as likely that these could be domains for non-gaming entertainment products (books, movies, etc.), mobile/social games that are being developed by Disney (as part of the deal, Disney did opt to retain “certain rights” to develop Star Wars games for mobile, social, tablet and “online game categories”), or they could end up being nothing at all.

As much as we would love to play “Wookiee Hunters,” for now, these Star Wars domains are just something to keep in mind until we get an official announcement from Electronic Arts as to what we can expect to see from their end of the deal. Once that happens, we will be sure to let you know.
