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

So Disney are shutting down LA as an internal development studio and changing to a licensing model instead. Means that both in development Star Wars games have been cancelled, although they may be resurrected with another developer taking over.

I'm okay with this actually. I would like for multiple developers to have a crack at the IP so that we get different experiences within the Universe. I just hope Disney licenses to the right people.

Was just about to post about this. I was pretty psyched for Star Wars 1313 when they showed it, visually it looked incredible. Bummed that it's future is now uncertain, hopefully they can figure something out.

Anyone but Bethesda! (personal preference, I hate Bethesda)

I'd actually love to see High Moon Studios get a crack at a star wars game, even though they just laid off some people...their transformers games have been nothing but amazing. And Deadpool looks like more of the same.

I'm bummed but not terribly upset. Hopefully we can get Kotor III out of bioware finally, and maybe even get a third Battlefront now...preferably from Dice but to each his own.

HMS seem like a good choice to finish off 1313, but from the sounds of it they tried to find someone before they officially shut it down and couldn't find any takers.

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.

It is a major bummer that those people lost their jobs, but it seems that the video game world does a good job of taking care of their own in some manner. At least when a whole studio shuts down.

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.

Apparently George wanted them to make it about Boba Fett, and it had been retooled a few times already.


Eh. More interested because it's Boba Fett, less interested at the same time because it had been retooled.

You know the more I think about it, the more I think this is really really good, at least for us the consumer. Think about it: when was the last time LucasArts actually made something you just had to buy?

My only concern now is Disney's brand protection practices.

Absolutely great news I think. Hopefully this means that some of the long awaited sequels (battlefield 3 kotor 3) get made. Seems like a perfect match to me.

Funny how earlier in the thread you mentioned that whoever will be making Battlefront 3, you'd prefer if it wasn't DICE. Most likely that's going to happen now.

EA specifically mentioned Bioware, DICE and Visceral are going to be making Star Wars games. I'm sure Bioware will got on some type of KOTOR style hype, so can't really complain about that. DICE is going to make a SW multiplayer shooter obviously. Visceral seems like a pretty mediocre dev to me, but we'll see

Nah, I said preferably DICE. I didn't want Bethesda getting their hands on Star Wars.

People love Dead Space, (I don't get the hype personally), but I can see why they got mentioned specifically for a game. They seem like the candidate to probably take over 1313 if I had to guess.

Oh just saw they made Dante's Inferno. I liked that game.

One thing I'm curious about is whether or not EA will release the shooter game that was supposed to be released last fall. And if they'll scrap 1313 and start from scratch since supposedly it was starting to get off course.
