LucasArts tees up new Star Wars titles, addresses layoffs


"LucasArts has decided to pull out of the E3 Media & Business Summit this year because there is "too much noise surrounding" the show, according to company spokesperson Margaret Grohne.

The move falls in nicely with the separate event European distributor Activision - soon to formalise its merger with Vivendi - is said to be running in the US next to E3 next month.

Speaking to VentureBeat, Grohne was also non-committal over leaks from former-LucasArts employees that the company was working on a Knights of the Old Republic 3 title with BioWare and a Star Wars Battlefront 3 game with Free Radical.

But she also went on to quash rumours surrounding the recent terminations that internal development at LucasArts would grind to a halt."

Everything is just flashy CGI but the story is numb and the acting is terrible.
