I don't get why people are sad about this, LucasArts hasn't really made anything worth mentioning in over a decade.



It's just the nostalgia i guess. Lucasarts pretty much made my childhood with their games.


And i was looking forward to 1313 and first assault.

Well, I guess since they'll still use it for publishing purposes, new Jedi Knight games could still happen. I mean, I guess their in-house games have been pretty shitty lately anyway. But no more proper Monkey Islands.


R.I.P. childhood.

I have a feeling you might see some familiar series again, what with Disney selling them off to developers. I know Telltale is already chomping at the bit for some of those licenses.

I kind of have to agree. LucasArts never really made anything that really wowed me. I kind of liked The Force Unleashed, but it certainly didn't wow me. Nor did the new games make me jump up and down or anything. So really, I'm just not that surprised.

Edit: ^ actually yeah, I really did enjoy the hell out of battlefront.

I want to move back under my rock.
Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

ALL HAIL CELESTIA

Sure, we've got some nostalgic ties, but they really haven't produced anything worth while in years. It's about time. It's good that they shut them down now before they completely destroy their reputations.

Woah bro, you COMPLETELY forgot Shadows of the Empire. That's the one I remember the most.

But other than that, yeah, that list is pretty great.

They mentioned third-party developers, guys.

Don't worry about Battlefornt 3, we'll get it and it'll be made by Activision.

I wasn't aware that giving the LA team prior notice and giving them an opportunity to transition somewhere else was a dick move.


Quote by George Lucas
It’s now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers. I’ve always believed that Star Wars could live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime. I’m confident that with Lucasfilm under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy, and having a new home within the Disney organization, Star Wars will certainly live on and flourish for many generations to come. Disney’s reach and experience give Lucasfilm the opportunity to blaze new trails in film, television, interactive media, theme parks, live entertainment, and consumer products.


They bought a huge company and killed it. They also still laid off 150 people in the process. Just because they had prior notice doesn't make it better.

"Hey everyone we're going to fire you."
"Okay"

Man, Lucasarts made some great Star Wars games. That entire list, plus Jedi Academy and Republic Commando. Plus, wasn't LucasArts involved with Grim Fandango and the Monkey Island games?

1313 looked great, it's a shame they cancelled it.

A huge company that was failing quite badly and was going to die anyways. LucasArts as devs haven't been profitable in quite a few years. They were mainly making profit off their licenses rather than games developed by them. Also, I would rather be given prior notice and a opportunity to go to a more successful company rather than just randomly being fired and left to fend for myself.

I don't recall there ever being a starwars game that wasn't total shit.

Then you haven't played either battlefront or rogue squadron, excellent games regardless of the starwars tie in

They also made this game:

Anyone else remember this? I kinda enjoyed it, but I don't think anybody ever played it.

No cares here.


In my restless dreams...
I see that town.
Silent Hill.
You promised you'd take me there again someday.
But you never did.

Well, I'm alone there now.
In our 'special place'...
Waiting for you.

To be honest I didn't really care for anything that LucasArts has done for a long time.

That being said, the trailer for 1313 looked awesome, and I'm pissed off now that it got canceled.

fuck you Disney.
