LucasArts No More.

NewsV1

For well over 20 years LucasArts have created some of the most (Day of the Tentacle, The Secret of Monkey Island ect.) cherished games of all time. Today however owners Disney have confirmed that LucasArts is no more.
“After evaluating our position in the games market, we’ve decided to shift LucasArts from an internal development to a licensing model, minimizing the company’s risk while achieving a broader portfolio of quality Star Wars games. As a result of this change, we’ve had layoffs across the organization. We are incredibly appreciative and proud of the talented teams who have been developing our new titles.”
The news will most definitely come as a bitter blow to LucasArts fans but one made all the more painful by the unconfirmed reports that the highly anticipated Star Wars 1313 and Star Wars: First Assault have been cancelled outright. Whether or not the latter aspects of the story turn out to be true remain to be seen but regardless the loss of LucasArts is an undeniable disappointment.
