Disney Shutters LucasArts

Disney has made the decision to shutter LucasArts and to immediately cancel all projects currently in development.  Disney purchased all assets from George Lucas in 2012 for just north of $4 billion.  LucasArts was one of those assets.

You have no idea how sad this makes me feel.  I spent many years playing LucasArts games, both Star Wars based games and others…and they were all great.

  • Loom
  • The Monkey Island series
  • Full Throttle!!
  • Day of the Tentacle
  • X-Wing/TIE Fighter series
  • Indiana Jones series
  • Dark Forces/Jedi Knight series
  • The Dig
  • Grim Fandango
  • The list is long and varied

Also, back in the 90s I interviewed with LucasArts and nearly ended up working for them.

RIP LucasArts.  1982-2013.
