Default Re: Disney shuts down LucasArts - Star Wars 1313 and Star Wars: First Assault cancelled

Overall i'm not that fussed as the people who were working at LucasArts during the 90's when they were making a ton of terrific games are all elsewhere, but it does suck that 150+ people now need to find new jobs.
I think HMS might take it after Deadpool is released, because from what I'm reading about them canning people is that they have nothing in the pipeline and they had to pay people. Plus they're more medium sized than large sized anyways. They probably only shopped it to the big studios.

I don't think Disney realizes what a cash cow they could have on their hands if they gave some of these titles to the right studios. I don't want to see it but Battlefront/Assault finished by one of the COD makers? People would eat that shit like it's fast food.

Yeah once I found out none of the guys made anything I liked I didn't care as much. I hope they find jobs but meh.
