A Star Wars tragedy. I blame Jar Jar!!

There is still (some) hope, they could just push the games to another publisher and license out the name of 1313 and Assault.

Disney usually knows what they're doing.

Pixar and Disney are good examples.

Something tells me they are only postponed. ;)

I got a disagree for giving hope?

I don't get some people...
BattleTorn  +   1044d ago
I'm with ya!

I have faith in big companies, like disney, ability to make money - or know what they're doing..

I also have enormous faith that there is lots n lots of money in Star Wars games. (despite their recent record)

Here's to hoping this isn't the last we hear about 1313 and Assault.

Well didn't see that coming.

I hope they sell off the IP's and I hope double fine gets Monkey Island back.

*looks at releated news below/ realizes its not April fools joke...

1313 looked amazing :/
Now our chances of getting our beloved KoToR3 are even slimmer from the looks of things...

WHAT ARE DISNEY DOING?! The expanded universe of Starwars is far more interesting than the films if you ask me and they were captured really well in games! This is a sad sad day

Disney Shuts Down LucasArts, Cancels Star Wars 1313 And Star Wars: First Assault
Are you f*cking kidding me?! I was excited for 1313 and a potential third installment in the Battlefront series, then this happens.

Damn you, Disney. I understand the business logic behind their move, but still...damn you.

Noooooooooo!!! Star wars 1313 looked amazing...

I was really hoping for Disney to really help get some great Star wars games out there, seems they are going in the opposite direction :(

I thought LucasArts would help Disney to become a bigger games publisher. Guess I thought wrong.

Rezka  +   1044d ago
Fucking Disney sorry but the f word had to be used they had to mess things up I was actually looking forward to play star wars 1313
imahustla19  +   1044d ago
This sucks! R.I.P Lucas arts. Good luck to the laid off developers, I hear gearbox is hiring starting today tho.
eliteslaya13  +   1044d ago
Gearbox could use some actual talent for a change.
monkey602  +   1044d ago
I Should never have gotten excited for these games I suppose
NYC_Gamer  +   1044d ago
Disney won't keep a studio around that produces zero profit
azshorty2003  +   1044d ago
And to think, I believed Disney was going to be the savior that Star Wars needed. This is awful, just awful.
SpecialK  +   1044d ago
All I want is battlefront 3, thats it, everything else can be put on hold just please make that game!

Everyone wants it those games were awesome. With new consoles we would have more players, bigger maps, like a crazy mix between Battlefield, Warhawk, MAG...


Its been so long I think I've hyped myself up so much that unless its 11/10 good I think I'm gonna have a breakdown =p
Pintheshadows  +   1044d ago
I'd like to see Star Wars Battlefront in the style of Planetside 2 if i'm honest.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   1044d ago
You got to be fucking kidding me. Star Wars 1313 was no Battlefront 3 but it looked fuckin amazing. Seriously, fuck Disney and sorry for those who lost their jobs over this.
tigertron  +   1044d ago
This news makes me concerned for Episodes VII, VIII and IX.
Vegrad415  +   1044d ago
Wow, I wasn't expecting to see this much hate. LucasArts has had some good games, but also plenty of bad ones too. And some of those good games were actually made by other developers with LucasArts doing the publishing.

Maybe the licensing model will get the Star Wars ip in the hands of some other talented devs.
sypher  +   1044d ago
Dont think Disney want to be in the actual business of making games themselves. But instead licensing out their products so they don't take the risk.
Aclay  +   1044d ago
Wow. This has console gen. sure has been a tough one for devs. Just so many notable studios that have either been shut down or are in financial woes. I mean, it wasn't that long ago when THQ was dissolved, and now LucasArts?! When I continue to see stuff like this, at times it makes me wonder about the future of the video game industry as the costs to develop games will surely continue to go up. Hopefully all the people laid off will find work elsewhere.

Sorry but this is really f*cked up from Disney. Starwars 1313 looked incredible. I really hope that the Devs find a new Job soon

I think this is a April fools joke.

On a side note, if true; there goes all chances of a Star Wars: battlefront game. ;'(

why disney?? 1313 was really good and has a lot of potential.
jakmckratos  +   1044d ago
As a Star Wars fan, as well as a fervent Disney fan and stockholder I incredibly dissapointed by this decision. 1313 must have had a huge amount of work put into it and it looks excellent. First assault also looked lke it could have had potential. Bad move DIsney...Star Wars games aren't known for their pedigree of excellence but these 2 definitely had the most potential of any game since Battlefront 2

Wow this is disapointing.
