Who can Develop LucasArts games now?

Brad Long at Aussie-Gamer.com writes: "on April 3rd.

With this, Disney effectively ensured that all future Lucas games would be either developed by Disney Interactive (to be brutally honest, this is worst-case scenario) or developed by third Party Studios.

The following five franchises paired with five different developers is a scenario that I would love to see happen if Disney were to magically allow me to choose the future of their gaming franchises." (Dev, LucasArts)

Anyone can, they just have to get the license, bioware did swtor by getting the license so any developer could do it if they wanted to .

Well then... let's get Naughty Dog working on SW Battlefront 3 so the universe can implode from all the awesome.

you do realise naughty dog are specalised, they are not the greatest developer ever than can develop anything.

If anything their multiplayer efforts so far have been bland and poor.

I wish it would be more open. I mean, why should any one company be able to lock down the rights? Lucas arts should let any company want to make Star Wars games as long as Lucas approves of it's story. Whenever a single game developer has the sole rights to a franchise, it tends to go sour if they are not a particularly good developer. Then we're stuck with them because they own exclusive rights and have no other competition. Look at EA with the Madden series. American Football games were better when EA didn't have sole rights to the franchise, because the competition from 2k and Midway etc kept football games from getting stale.

Cause if they do that ,they may never get their rights back. Like the way Sony rushed to make the Amazing Spider-man movie before their licences rights expired, clause stated that if a movie is not being made for a period of time rights revert back to owner. that is why they must not be so open with their IPS or license .

It doesn't have to be done the way the Spiderman license was done. The licenses could be one-time use and handed out on a case by case basis. If a company does a good job on a particular game they get an option for a sequel.

Whatever Disney does I just hope they License to 3rd party studios, So all Star War game remain Multi-platforms so everyone can enjoy them.

@SJPFTW they may have not been developing them but no matter how you slice it they have say over anything star wars & that whole fictional universes

I hope somebody picks up what's left of SW1313...

Battlefront and Knights of the Old Republic and most Star Wars games were not even developed by Lucas Arts. Fail article. Only difference is LucasArts wont be publishing them

This honestly isn't much of a change from the way Lucasarts did things.
