The May issue of Game Informer tracks down the story of a Darth Maul game that got the axe at developer Red Fly Studios – including concept art.
According to the story, the untitled project would have been a character action game inspired by Rocksteady’s Arkham games.
The project never made it past the concept stage, but seemed like another attempt – like the cancelled Boba Fett game, Star Wars 1313 – to poke around the darker corners of that universe. There was no story in place, but based on the images, it looks like Red Fly wanted to populate the game with plenty of Sith for the Episode 1 heavy to go up against.
Alas, we’ll never know.
