The Walt Disney Company hasn't spent much time producing high-end games recently and instead focuses on a mobile and social strategy. It's admitted it wants to do the same with Star Wars.
I don't want Star WarsVille.
Sell Monkey Island to Double Fine.
^ What Lucreto said.
Why can't they just own it without Fking shit up why must the old farts in charge always find a ways to fk stuff up. come on you left ESPN alone , you have not messed w/ Marvel, why is it u feel the need to screw with Lucas-Arts & everything else.
If they wont make the games themself at least give the rights to other developers like Bethesda or Doublefine or even TellTale
Considering both the new Star Wars trilogy and the last Indiana Jones film were meh I hope Disney do change LucasFilm tbh.
This I agree with and Lucasarts itself I hope they do not just sell its properties to Activision/EA. Honestly I can see Star Wars titles shipped off to EA DICE and Battlefront 3 appearing. That itself wouldn't be a bad thing entirely in my book. If they do keep LA I hope they fix it. Last 4 projects they canned 3 of the great ones and let the bad egg release. I am talking about SW TOR, Battlefront 3, KOTOR 3, and Indiana Jones title that never appeared. I really do not see why they would shut down LA at all. Star Wars 1313 looks like something amazing. They can't trash that or we revolt.
I, for one, welcome our new masters. After the debacle that was The Force Unleashed II, I'm ready for a change of direction.
"The Walt Disney Company hasn't spent much time producing high-end games recently" I call BS! Their main game for this season is Epic Mickey 2. It may not seem big to you but for the Disney fanbase and kids alike, Epic Mickey 2 will be a big hit for them. Plus, the game looks like it has great production values. I know you said "except for Epic Mickey" but that completely denies your statement. With LucasArts in their wing, they may continue to create larger games. They hired Warren Spector and Junction Point Studios to create a large game franchise for them and perhaps this could be the same for Lucas.
