star wars 1313

Disney has announced that it is formally closing the historic LucasArts development studio, following its acquisition of LucasFilm last year. The studio's two announced games, Star Wars 1313 and Star Wars: First Assault, have been cancelled.

A statement provided to Game Informer confirmed the news, while sources talking to Kotaku indicated that games in development had been cancelled and 150 staff have been laid off.

"After evaluating our position in the games market, we've decided to shift LucasArts from an internal development to a licensing model, minimizing the company's risk while achieving a broader portfolio of quality Star Wars games. As a result of this change, we've had layoffs across the organization. We are incredibly appreciative and proud of the talented teams who have been developing our new titles."

There will be future Star Wars games, but they'll be licenced out to third parties (like EA's regrettably-doomed PC MMO, The Old Republic) and unlikely to appear for several years yet. Unless somebody buys up the remains of the highly promising Star Wars 1313, that is - but that's unlikely to be anywhere near finished if Disney felt comfortable canning it, and if given Square's current woes there doesn't seem to be anybody with sufficient cash to harvest the remains.

It's a very sad day for gaming: while recent releases like Force Unleashed 2 and Fracture disappointed, LucasArts previously created some of the most revered titles in gaming, including Day of the Tentacle, X-Wing, Star Wars Jedi Knight and Star Wars Battlefront.

Star Wars Battlefront 3 is going to come out on 2015. I've seen some gameplay it's going to be an amazing game. You should go check it out on youtube, it's just the demo but still looks really good.
