A Darth Maul Video Game Was Cancelled By LucasArts

We get word via an article posted on IGN about a video game LucasArts was working on that was supposed to be centered around the character of Darth Maul.

Prior to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, developer Red Fly was working on a Star Wars game starring Darth Maul, the Sith Lord from Episode I: The Phantom Menace, and eventual star of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Red Fly's PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U game would have been a stealth action game inspired by Batman: Arkham Asylum, Game Informer revealed in its May 2014 issue. Maul was, as an anonymous developer described it, "insanely powerful and deadly, but one or two hits will take you out."

What's of very interesting note is that according to the article, the game was initially being developed to tie into a season from 'The Clone Wars'.

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.

Check out this demo reel video that shows some footage of what the game could have looked like.
