Well, so much for any more Star Wars games for a while...

Kotaku article says it all really. Disney has shuttered Lucas Arts games division. So, I guess anyone with hopes for a new SW MMO is SOL...

    1313 cancelled.. can't believe it:(

    Unless Disney realizes that LucasGames is a failure and they are just going to allow other companies to make the games on their own without getting in the way too much...

    Didnt think of that I bet.

    well... They did say,
    "Disney will still use the LucasArts name to license games, but the studio is no more."
    at the end of the first paragraph.

    But later, said,
    " Our source says Lucas has pursued the option for "one or both games," but nothing happened. "With the teams now basically being dispersed I think both games are effectively dead forever," our source said.

    A second source also told Kotaku this afternoon that the chances of Lucas licensing out 1313 are very slim. The odds are "effectively zero," the source said."
    about 1313 and First Assault.

    Unknown future Star Wars games may be made, but the 2 titles mentioned seem all but dead.

    Who really knows, though?

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    So essentially there will be more Star Wars games, it just will be done by developers licensing the IP.

    seems so but the 1313 team seems to of been let go or "restructured" so doesn't look good for that game unless the people making it can take what they made to another studio and finish it...

    The real Lucasarts died a decade ago just their bloated,walking corpse was still around.Disney just provided the final  headshot.

    should of kept working on 1313 and put SWTOR out to pasture...with a .45....
  • ThomasN7ThomasN7 87.18.7.148 1, NJPosts: 6,690Member
    I wonder if TOR didn't fail so hard that any of this would even happen. Hard to imagine because Star Wars is an ip that you love for a lifetime.

    seeing the E3 footage last year I'm sure they were decently far into development by now.. i'd hope some way or another this games gets completed

    Yeah, but then again there is this:

    Publicly, Disney is saying their current games could be licensed out to a different publisher or developer, but according to our source, that's unlikely. Our source says Lucas has pursued the option for "one or both games," but nothing happened. "With the teams now basically being dispersed I think both games are effectively dead forever," our source said.

    A second source also told Kotaku this afternoon that the chances of Lucas licensing out 1313 are very slim. The odds are "effectively zero," the source said.

    http://kotaku.com/disney-shuts-down-lucasarts-468473749

     

    So a lot of hearsay so far.

    It would be interesting to see someone like Naughty Dog pick it up as it's right up their alley. Fat chance I know..

    I was really looking forward 1313... :(

    It really looks like we are not going to have any new SW game for a long time.
