Wow. Kind of sad. Lucas Arts kept getting treated like Amtrak.

Make quality games inhouse, wait this is too expensive license them, wait the quality is not good enough, make them inhouse, wait it's too expensive, etc.

Good bye Star Wars Galaxies and 1313, nice knowing you.

Lucus Arts has never made an MMO.  They have always sold the rights to a 3rd party studio to make star wars mmo's.  Nothing about the article you linked says a thing about there never being another star wars mmo.

Yeah totally weird title for this thread OP. I think it's terrible that 150 staff have been laid off too and wanted to see the 1st person game and 1313. Disney might give rights to the IP for future MMO's , that's up to them. 

Cheers,

They said 1313 will be given to another developer to finish it.  Star Wars in general will come back with a bang in disneys hands and JJ Abrams is a great director imo made a lot of good stuff like Lost.

They never said ending the video game production forever just not by the name of lucas arts.  And 1313 will be handed to a new developer.

The way I read it, Disney doesn't want to do anything with Star Wars but licensing. (They are making the movies, but in a sense they are even licensing that out to JJ.) Everyone working at Lucas Arts got the can. They could license out Star Wars to another MMO. If I worked for ILM I wouldn't be happy with this turn of events.

In a utshell, Disney paid a billion for the Star Wars name. Disney will be happy to sell rights to the license, but doesn't want to spend money investing additional revenue into Star Wars related companies.

(ILM makes bank on its own, doesn't mean Disney wont sell it as an assest, risk avoidance.)

Yes, shutting down the redundant studio that you got as part of purchasing the entire Corporation. Makes sense. Even if they don't have a gaming studio , they'll make more from liscensing then they will the actual production. So letting someone else take the risk , while you reap the rewards makes so much more sense.

how is this valid to Star Wars the Old Republic? LucasArts wasnt developing it that was being done be BioWare/Mythic With EA providing the cash to do so.

"Possibly we humans can exist without actually having to fight. But many of us have chosen to fight. For what reason? To protect something? Protect what? Ourselves? The future? If we kill people to protect ourselves and this future, then what sort of future is it, and what will we have become? There is no future for those who have died. And what of those who did the killing? Is happiness to be found in a future that is grasped with blood stained hands? Is that the truth?"

Shutting down LucasArts was pointless.  So many better outcomes could have risen from all this.  Shutting them down, hmmm .. Is this what Disney is about then, acquiring then shutting down .. makes me wonder, should make you wonder too.

 

Disney sounds a lot like EA.  Oh snap, did I just say that?

Hmmm... it seems that it means more licences for other game developers... which might be a good thing.

Please do correct me if I'm mistaken here...

But didn't Disney just buy this for $4.04 BILLION ? (yes along side Lucas Films... but still !!!)

 

Who the hell wastes that much money on something they throw in the bin?

WTF Disney go feed starving kids or something useful?!

How is that good?

 

Star Wars should go to the most qualified, though a pool of contenders.  Having less competition isn't good for the end user (us, ie me and you).

I am well aware they are, thats why I added ('yes along side Lucas Films')

But still $4.04 billion to be allowed to make a few movies? 

I'd say thats stoopid..

They count on billions of dollars of profit from movies...  games are nothing comparing to this and it takes longer to make then movies. I think we will see much less SW games in the future... which is bad news for us, but good news for SWTOR:)

Edit. And considering that most of gaming companies will stay away from SW IP (it brings bad luck LOL) ...
