Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 Cancelled on PSP

For those of you looking forward to using your Force abilities on Sony's handheld, LucasArts has some bad news. Although it was originally scheduled to release on the PSP alongside its Nintendo DS, console and PC counterpart, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II for the PSP has been canceled.

According to IGN, the publishing giant would not comment further on the cancellation of the PSP version. All remaining versions of Starkiller's next adventure are scheduled to release on October 26, 2010.

When the original Star Wars: The Force Unleashed hit PSP in later 2008, it garnered mixed reviews from critics. It's unclear whether LucasArts cancelled the title due to profitability concerns or because development ran into issues. According to first quarter results provided by Sony, PSP software has seen a slight increase over last year.

Shacknews is attempting to use its own Force powers to sway a comment from LucasArts; however, we've yet to hear back from the company at the time of publishing.
