Battlefront 3 and Star Wars 1313 release excitement renewed

InEntertainment says: Today has certainly been a day we will remember because not only did we see the release of Assassin’s Creed 3 and being told by Rockstar that Grand Theft Auto V will be released in the Spring 2013, we now have news that Disney has bought LucasFilms for the sum of $4 billion.

I never thought I'd say this but thank god for Disney. Anything Lucas related has been mismanaged for so long I was completely over their properties. Now with Disney I'm hoping they get back on track here.

Lets hope they take the Star Wars brand in the right direction. To get back on track, just give us a new Jedi Knight game please. If they want to go one step further for the fans, instead of making a Jedi Knight game, make a Sith Warrior game and base it on the Darth Bane trilogy.

The series hasn't been in the right direction since the 80's. Though I did love Battlefront, KOTOR 1 and 2 and Force Unleashed 2 was good, even if it was short.

I honestly don't care about the games to be honest; they can release a couple more Kinect Star Wars games and MMOs and I'd be unfazed. However, only 70s George Lucas could ever pull another good Star Wars trilogy. They should leave the actual series as they are and stop ruining the legend it used to be.


Id love to see an HD remake of Shadows of the Empire ( you know that game rocked ) id love to see it built from the ground up with the engine from the last game
also jedi academy.

Oh Hell yea!!! Lets hope Disney do this right!!! I don't really have nothing against Disney. I like their Amusement parks and would be more than happy if they were to hire me for game development. Think about it!!! If Disney were to hire you for game design would you refuse it? Even if you don't like Disney take the job anyway to get the experience, then quit when you find something different.

I really hope they will bring back BattleFront 3!!! Fingers cross.

Considering what they have done with Marvel so far (Iron Man 3 looks fantastic) i'm incredibly optimistic. Battlefront 3, a new Jedi Knight, KOTOR, a sequel to Grim Fandango, an Indy game. They could do so much.

I have a feeling this purchase was in response to John Carter being a huuuge flop. Disney wanted to create an epic sci-fi phenomenon, failed, and so instead they decided to buy the biggest IP in film.

Fair play Disney.

am i the only one hoping they use all off disney assets for a new kingdom hearts?
imagine how many characters they can use from lucas, marvel, pixar, disney and square.
and how many different worlds they can create. i hope they make it happen!

Honestly I don't want Maevel or Star Wars in KH. For now yey should keep it atrictly classic Disney and maybe pixar.

Qrphe2231d ago

Tron was enough, I really hope they keep all their Live Action series out of KH for good.

pompombrum2231d ago (Edited 2231d ago )

What games have Disney made though that have been good? Do they even make games or just sell off the IP rights?

Irishguy952231d ago

I didn't disagree....

but here's how it is. Lucasarts make bad business decisions gaming wise. Back in the day(Before this gen) they made good ones for us. Kotor became TOR. Jedi knight series ditched. Kotor 2 was literally thrown out the door for Christmas. It wasn't finished, Lucasarts would not let Obsidian finish. Battlefront 3 is nonexistent.

Now, Disney, while i'm not a fan of KH myself, they at least supported some new and kept it up all the way till now. Maybe(HOPEFULLY) they'll listen to what the fans want and give us the games we want, while giving developers the control they need instead of scabbing money at every opportunity.

Same goes for the new star wars films, lets just hope they get a good team on board for that and get some decent actors(Not Hayden ****y Christen or whatever his name is)
