LucasArts Is Closing And All Pending Games Are Cancelled


In a move that doesn’t come as a huge surprise, Disney has shuttered LucasArts and cancelled any upcoming games. This includes the highly anticipated Star Wars 1313. The news came this morning and means that about 150 people are out of a job. The reason for the closure was cited as a change in focus from in-house game production to licensing which is a much less risky endeavor. There’s still a possibility that another developer could pick up Star Wars 1313, but at this point, both the game and LucasArts are goners.
