Disney Closes LucasArts: A Look Back At The 30 Year Old Company

Super PolyPixel - LucasArts had been in the midst of developing its newest title, Star Wars 1313. They had first announced it at E3 2012. It was probably the game that Star Wars fans were looking for: a game revolving around a bounty hunter in the underworld of Coruscant. Kotaku later revealed concept art image featuring Boba Fett…and much of the world wept at what could have been. Although, there is some speculation that Star Wars 1313 might be revived through external development or licensing. But it’s best we don’t hold our collective breath.

We should instead take some time to remember LucasArts, a game company that was founded in 1982 and has probably been around longer than most of the gamers today have been alive. Many of the current generation of gamers, like myself, cut their teeth on early LucasArts games. Ballblazer and Rescue on Fractalus! were the earliest games from the company and were released in 1984.

Me too... and I still had hope that a new Battlefront would eventually come out. F Disney :( and the people that say LA shutting down is "good".
If only it was April 1st... :(

1313 was looking good too...

Whatever, since disney bought the starwars rights they are probably going to rape the bejesus out of it anyway. It brings a tear to my eye because starwars has been one of my favorite movies/games since I was a child.

And Ill agree with 1313 looking awsome, I WAS looking forward to it. key word "was"

Same, i loved the games, movies and even some of the books. I knew nothing good would come of Disney taking over Starwars, but this is just F***ed. I'm more than a little sad and totally pissed at Disney.
