    Disney Shuts Down LucasArts

    what? really?

    Staff were informed of the shutdown this morning, according to a reliable Kotaku source. Some 150 people were laid off, and both of the studio's current projects—Star Wars: First Assault andStar Wars 1313—were cancelled. Disney will still use the LucasArts name to license games, but the studio is no more.

    A mercy killing if ever there was one. That studio as been on an epic cold streak for years. 1313 looked promising, but most of their games did before they came out...

    Agreed. I'm trying my darnedest, but I can only remember 4 games since the Super Nintendo that they put out and I actually enjoyed playing.

    I'm sure with the recent news that 1313 was to be about Boba Fett, someone will pick up that game and finish it.

    I used to love The Monkey Island games

    They were good, but I believe they were all PC ports, weren't they?

    You can get them on other platforms, I believe.

    Actually, what I meant was that I didn't think LucasArts were the original publisher. I have since looked it up and stand corrected. Can you believe The Secret of Monkey Island is 23 years old?!

    Seems like that was the last time LucasArts made anything worth playing, with the exception of Knights Of The Old Republic...
