darth maul

IGN reveal software developer, Red Fly were working on a Darth Maul game which was going to tie in with The Clone Wars TV Series.  The game would have been a stealth action game and would have been open world not unlike the Batman: Arkham games.  The company would have brought the game out on PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U.

Although the developer aimed to create a Darth Maul origin story in 2010, LucasArts’ goal was to link the game, codenamed Damage, to an upcoming season of The Clone Wars, in which reintroduced the supposedly dead Maul via his brother, Savage Opress.
George Lucas himself shifted the direction of Damage drastically, with the story involving Darth Krayt and Darth Talon, known within Star Wars’ Dark Horse Comics canon.
This the development team confused about its future, according to Game Informer sources. Despite this, LucasArts allegedly considered purchasing Red Fly. When the buyout didn’t happen, LucasArts canceled Damage in 2011, forcing the studio to let go of 70 employees.

There had been a demo reel doing the rounds on the web but it seems the video has been taken down.
