Re: LucasArts Closed Down by Disney - Star Wars 1313 Cancelled?

As much as I feel for the employee's laid off and their families, its a smart move for Disney business wise, and it may end up better for us as gamers in the end.

With the studio being closed, Disney can and probably will now provide licensing to third parties instead, meaning they take no risks of developing titles that may not pay off, and still get paid...I know if I owned all those licenses id probably do the same. Its no risk and all the rewards.

It will also mean licenses will be available to developers that truly want to bring them justice, as lets be honest, Lucasarts hasnt done anything truly special for a long long time now. Maybe we will finally see another Day of the Tentacle come to light...

Can't wait for the release of Star Wars: Survival Instinct.

I did like Raven Softwares tribute to Lucasarts... they released the source for Jedi Outcast and Academy! Lucasarts had been saying "no bloody way mate!" for 11 years.
