Rogue Squadron: Trilogy for Xbox

In fall 2003 rumors said that Factor 5 plans to release a compilation of its three Rogue Squadron games on Xbox. While part 2 and 3 stayed mostly untouched, the first one (originally released on N64) saw a graphical overhaul.
Reasons for porting the trilogy included declining sales of GameCube hard/software and strong sales of Star Wars titles on Xbox.

While initial plans projected a late 2004 release, the game never made it to the shelves. Therefore MusyX is the only published project on Xbox, only for developers. However, Rogue Squadron: Trilogy (codename: Rebel X) was not the only Factor 5 title that was cancelled during that time.
