Disney doesn't have time for games, what with world domination and all.
Well Disney this ignorance is what ruining your brand name rn
The Disney family hasn’t had anything to do with Disney for a very long time, Unfortunately. Walt would not like a majority of what is happening with the company today.
Marvel excluded of course. right?
Lol, walt also liked Hitler so he is no standard. You should look up his horrible history and views first
Lol you're right, he would hate how many Jews and colored people are included in his films and park.
@slavish0 Liking Hitler has nothing to do with one's ability to run a company well. You can be a scumbag and still be efficient in running a company, the two aren't mutually exclusive.
@bluefox755 thank you for using your brain and not your emotions brother.
"EA Admits It's Not So Great at Publishing Video Games, Prefers F***ing Them Up Instead." There. Fixed it.
Haha - awesome
Neither great at publishing nor at picking a good publisher
Lolwut? Plenty of publishers have done wonders with Disney properties over the years such as Sega, Capcom, Warner Bros Interactive, Sony Interactive Entertainment, & most notable of all Square Enix
Was talking about EA, or do you think they did a great job with the license as well ?
Yeah EA butchered the Star Wars license but that doesn’t mean that Disney in general aren’t good at picking good publishers for their licensed games
While i agree with u about other publishers doing great jobs about the license, this article and these days the spotlight is on EA, so it goes without saying that any one who talks smack about star wars games nowadays is talkin about the state we're in, not the past
I think Disney had practical business reasons why EA may seem like a good publisher. Especially at the time they made the deal. They've had a rough couple of years now, but before that, despite how much we hate them, they make money, and sell games. They have a bad track record for quality games, and seem to be going in a direction that a lot of hardcore gamers don't like, but Disney doesn't care about that as much as getting the games released.
Except prtnering with Sony
How about licensing it to a publisher who doesn't have microtransactions, loot boxes and pay 2 win on the brain.
License to Sony and get something great made.
They did, very recently too.
That only happened because of the movie deal. Disney would NOT cut off Star Wars from the population at large
@Dilly They might since Sony showed that an exclusive license can pull big numbers. I doubt they'd allow cutting off PC gamers though. Too many PC gamers buy SW games. But, Sony has a couple game engines which can build to PC, so it would be something they can license out to another company to do the PC build....with either Sony or Disney publishing. It won't happen of course. But going exclusive with a license doesn't mean it drastically drops sales of the game.
Why don’t they do case by case. This Exclusive agreement blows
THIS! Disney needs to get people who love Star Wars in charge of Star Wars.
"We don't like the frying pan, so we're jumping into the fire." How tragic is that . . .
Hire someone who is good at it then. Please get rid of EA.
EA isn’t that bad about games but they could look into others. I mean look at the success that Kingdom hearts has and that’s a Disney collaboration with Square Enix.
When it comes to Disney and games everyone thinks star wars whilst I sit and cry knowing split second will never get a sequel.
Pity they would choose EA of all companies to license their IPs to.
Oh so they rather have EA drag their properties through the mud. I see how it is now.
YOU HAD LUCAS ARTS YOU FUCKING STUPID CUNTS!!!
Pretty much. While never really a powerhouse, LucasArts was a legendary developer and publisher. So many great moments. Its closure was by far the saddest consequence of the aquisition.
This is disney basically reaffirming they wont be dropping ea regardless of backlash well good cause the backlash is only going to get worst with their current track record goodbye starwars smh
Maybe they would actually improve on publishing games if they didn't shut down Disney Interactive Studios...their ONLY gaming division studio.
They also instantly shut down LucasArts after aquiring it with the rest of LucasFilm.
Still boggles my mind that with that swift act they cancelled star wars 1313..like wtf..
I was a bit dissappointed at the lack of content on KH3 but this reminded it's still about a 1000000000 times better than anything EA has done with Disney licenses
ok disney, that's good that you can't publish games properly (or you don't want to)... but at least give the license to a SH that loves doing videogames and not mere cashgrab shitty games.
So they're ignorant to publishing, but who recommended them to license to EA?
This is coming from the same company that churned out The Last Jedi, so it's not surprising that they are happy with EA.
Disney is not so great at publishing games so they gave it to ea. How ironic lol.
Get another publisher.
you need someone in charge that understands and likes games, neither company has this right now.
You'd think there would be plenty of qualified individuals out there who could help them create a publishing house that is like Disney used to be, where they were fine developing and publishing games.
Wow Disney is fing retarded. You are leaving HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars on the cutting room floor. EA is whoring out your license and they do NOT know how to manage this IP.
Frick EA.. Go with Sony.. I mean look at what they did with Spider-Man
Disney should have kept Lucasarts games studio opened they made some great games. Disney should give the Star Wars license to SquareEnix they are the only developers who has not screwed up the Disney franchises. Kingdom Hearts proves SquareEnix does a better job then EA.
Wish the NFL could feel the same
Well.. EA are not very good at publishing Star Wars games either.. a match made in heaven.
Wait then how did Disney green light the awesome Spider-man game then?
They can't really be making that much money from EA can they ?
I suspect its' quite a lot. The licensing rights alone are going to be huge, especially if they get exclusive rights to make a SW game. EA pays a premium for the NFL license. Disney would likely make more if they opened up the license though, because they've lost royalties on those cancelled SW games.
But how much can they really make from the licensing when EA is not making anything worth while ? We know now that Disney is losing money on Star Wars & games is one of those aspects. Disney cant be happy over all
Disney is almost as big a Cancer as EA
Prefers EA, eh? Well it kinda does makes sense. Disney doesn't understand publishing and EA doesn't understand developing, both don't understand Star Wars, and both their respective villages are missing a semi important member of their community. Yeah, they are kind of made for each other aren’t they? Two halves of a whole idiot.
