The Last Months Of LucasArts (And A Glimpse Of Battlefront III)

In November, just after purchasing LucasFilm, Disney CEO Bob Iger held a company-wide meeting. During the meeting, according to a source in attendance, a few people asked what was going on. What was going to happen to them? What was the future of LucasArts, the LucasFilm subsidiary and 30-year-old video game studio responsible for a number of beloved games? (Industry, LucasArts, PS3, Star Wars: Battlefront III, Xbox 360)

Man this is so sad to see leaked footage from the THIRD version of a SWBF sequal (FreeRadical, Slant6, now Lucasarts) that has been cancelled. This game has seriously been my most wanted game since SWBF2 came out 7 1/2 years ago. At this point im not even expecting the game to ever be released anymore...

Thank god the Slant6 version never came out. They couldn't make a good game if their lives depended on it.

It's not actually BF3. It's a project called Version 2. It was a small project according to the article, likely a downloadable game. Though they said they were considering turning it into BF3. Either way, the game looked awesome. I would gladly have paid for that.

That's what I can't understand about LucasArts. They kept releasing crap games, and all the good ones would get cancelled, or put on hold.

Me too. I loved flying a ship from one ship to another and fighting my way to the control room so i could cover it in charges.

With a rap that like, no game company is going to take it for fear of being shut down.

The Battlefront series usually has that type of feel.
