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.
- 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.
