Well, I read the article. It clearly said more Star Wars games are coming. “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," LucasArts parent company LucasFilm said in a statement."

Just not 1313.

The only debate is will any of the future broader portfolio be worth a damn. Not like the recently laid off lucasarts team was doing anything anyway. Looks at kinetic Star Wars.

God damn it. This is the worst news. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF. Star Wars 1313 looked absolutely amazing.

Although there had actually been many graphic adventures before it, (including Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade not long before) The Secret of Monkey Island was still a revelation as the first graphic adventure that I had played on the Amiga. The machine was a huge step up in graphics and sound quality from the Commodore 64 and the use of a memorable, jaunty, soundtrack and the moody, atmospheric locations stood out. Part 2 expanded on it, although I found it a bit tricky. Curse of Monkey island, although without Ron Gilbert, has some of the most memorable animation of any videogame - still to date and was pleasingly (for me) easier. Escape was like a return to Part 2's complexity in a way.

"Pirates of the Caribbean (film) is a rip-off of Monkey Island which is a rip-off of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride [at Disneyland theme parks]," Gilbert commented. "So it's hard for me to get too mad at Disney when I ripped them off originally.":

Best wishes Lucasarts employees and thank you for your imaginative games and maybe that Disney connection may stand you well too in gaming prescence in the Disney parks.

Fuck you Disney. First we lose Battlefront 3 all those years ago, now this. I just want good Star Wars games but nobody will let people do it.

Well lucasarts went down the crapper anyway with their games compared to the masterpieces they previously produced.

They could not even give us battlefront III before they went under and instead left a legacy of crappy linear games and a failed MMO.

The empire of Darth Disney has won!!!
No more FPS, battlefronts, rogue squadrons, KOTR, etc.
May the force be with us, a new hope we need...

My hopes and Dreams of Star Wars 1313 AND GALACTIC BATTLEGROUNDS SEQUEL!

One of my favorite RTS...And I'll never see a sequel.

i would much rather the movie be great, than the game mock what the movie could've been.

I knew Disney would be the death of Star War games.

Wow Mickey Mouse really gave Darth Vader a kick in the balls. I am sorry to hear that I really wanted another Force Unleashed game.I know this will hurt fans who love and play Star Wars games. I remember Rouge Squardran on N64 and one of my favorite games. I thought if anything Disney Interactive would have taken over the Star Wars franchise. This is really going to hurt the fans the most. George Lucas should never have sold the Star Wars franchise. Whats next Warner Bros going to buy the Star Trek franchise.

I've sadly played too many Star Wars games that have sucked my very soul out &left me with an inner feeling of disappointment & lost opportunity. Quite frankly, it seems to me that Lucas Arts gaming dept, have really lacked the required quality that this franchise deserves, & the games that gamers above all deserve...

No funny or ironic quotes from me this time.

This. This really hurts.

Looks George Lucas made a bad decision selling Lucas Arts to Disney. Should stay away from mega corporations like Disney, EA , and etc that destroy other companies. Should been like Valve studio. Gabe is the New George Lucas.

SMH I made a comment studios can't afford to make these big budget games and not have a huge return.
BlaqMagiq24  +   1046d ago
Disney must have EA syndrome, shutting down everything that we actually care about.
CaptainYesterday  +   1046d ago
Really hope Star Wars 1313 comes out, I was so pumped for this game!

Is the studio ( LucasArts ) located in the United States or somewhere else?.. because sometimes Disney would either close a studio because the costs of keeping it up simply doesn't justify the gains they would make with the end product/s - which are basically the games. So what Disney does is move the studio and a few of their staff to another country where the cost is much less and then start again from there.

@thechosenone after the whole ordeal w/ the Spiderman license, I think Disney will be more detailed in their next dealings w/ Sony when it comes to IP licenses .
ZeekQuattro  +   1046d ago
I was looking forward to 1313. I knew Disney buying Star Wars was bad even when people were trying to defend them mainly due to how Avengers came out. Disney is the true evil empire. Palpatine has nothing on them. lol
