Disney has announced that it will be laying off 150 employees and closing the doors to its newly acquired gaming studio LucasArts. The decision was based on Disney's desire to licenses rights out to external developers to avoid the burden of failed projects. The games StarWars 1313 and First Assault have been cancelled and are assumed to all but dead. Disney has claimed that efforts to pitch 1313 to other developers have failed.

I believe I said Disney would be the death of Star Wars, probably not here but I do remember saying it. It starts with the games and it'll soon trickle into bad movies, I can see it now.

 

Gah, I was looking forward to 1313.

This sucks. :( I'm surprised Disney would want to outsource games. Considering how good they are doing with their own movie productions, you'd think they'd want to keep their properties close to home or maybe acquire a new gaming company or even expand Lucasarts.. Maybe there were more issues going on at Lucasarts than whats been released publicly.

I think Disney is just consolidating all the IPs so they dont have like 6 millions companies out there

If something's important, just say so without yelling at me. Or fly over to it and change color like you usually do. Just because I'm busy mowing the lawn and hoping I'll find some spare change, doesn't mean I can't hear you." - Link

      I loved this cartoon when i was a kid. The animation looks good, the music is great, the voice actors are a good match. I'll watch this.

      Sounds like a good title to me. The movie is going to pick up right where the last movie ended.

      No Johnny Depp in the trailer, but it looks very promising.

      Holy crap. Thrawn is officially part of the new Star Wars canon. And there will be a new Thrawn novel. I'm so happy. This obviously means the Chiss are canon now as well. I need this book. Hell, I might even have to watch Star Wars Rebels now.

      Maybe he'll be a good Han Solo. I still have the old Han Solo Trilogy of books in my head so it'll be a hard watch for me since all that canon will be thrown out the window.
