that sounds like a kinect game.

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

WTF Disney go feed starving kids or something useful?!

 

They are making the new star wars movie you know, they are shutting down lucas not star wars.

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:)

bad news for SWTOR would be good news for many who don't see any future in this "story driven" clunky themepark MMO .

Maybe Disney should buy EA and shut down some studios with less talent than LucasArts had. What a shame.

Less competition.

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 did not say it's good :)

Well you didn't say it's bad either..

 

just sayin.

Until Old republic looses it's contract no other MMO based on star wars can be made. That will be in about 9 years.

I wonder how this "buried corpse" SWG still eats SWTOR for breakfast.

Maybe SWG has an immortal soul and will always live on, unlike dozens of run off the mill wowclones

Yes, it will be like the fanbase of the grateful dead. You'll still see a dead head every now and then but the rest of us who aren't stoned realize that it hasn't been relevant in years.

That's a shame, back in the day Lucasarts made some great games.

 

The only bearing I could see this having on SWTOR though is that it might make it less expensive for Disney to get out of whatever licensing contract they have with EA.  But honestly, I'm sure they're already planning on pulling the license as soon as fiscally worthwhile anyway, and I'm sure that isn't in 10 years.  It's an underperforming title by every definition, and I'd say Disney clearly isn't ok with that or else they wouldn't be shutting down LA and every other studio they've gotten their hands on.  Heck, they barely even have any inhouse software development anymore.  They have three remaining studios, one now only producing mobile games at a seemingly glacial pace, one in China doing who knows what, and one working on a single cross platform title, a software/toy hybrid ala Skylanders.

It was very far in and seemed quite adult oriantated , the only plus side it was based on courscant lol :D. 

Some one earlier said it best and I believe it too be true. I want to add this is a sad day and I do not like the way games are going , well I mean games development. Cell phones for bleedin gaming ? Is there a joystick ? Is there a d-pad ? Is there a bloody thumb stick ? same goes for I pad's. O I can buy a thumb stick err i have a handheld and a PC and a console though. 

O you want to call someone try talking and typing into this piece of slate and the sound is so cool with free Mp3's . What a joke! 

/rantover

Almost for gods sake and micro tansactions in single player games wth is that ?

Ok i'm done.

Have a good un.

Cheers,

 Disney will continue to whore out the franchise like LucasArts did. If anything I hope they slow the making of games down. There's been a crap load of Star Wars games the last ten years and most have been mediocre to bad. Very few(KOTOR,Battlfront) have been above average.

Podracer on the N64 was it ? and The GC game on day one was pretty cool. I agree though battlefront 1 and 2 where amazing :). Hang on the hoth reinactments of ESB where superb on N64 and GC. Mind you not sure which where pure LA games.

Shame though , bye LucasArts we will miss you.

Huh?

1) The talent that made those games moved on a long time ago.

2) Some of the games you've listed above were developed by another studio that had the licence and not Lucas Arts.

3)  The talent that left Lucas Arts in point 1 above formed their own studios and if they don't already have the licence to those games, they'll now be able to get it.  Would you really be upset if Tell Tale Games got the maniac mansion licence?

4) As pointed out already SWG is dead.

5) Before you say goodbye understand that 1313 is for sale.

I am quite sad to hear LucasArts is closing. I am not a massive fan of Star Wars, but the games they made were amazing. Shadows of the Empire will always be near and dear to my heart.

Nice target render. I wonder what the actual game looked like. (edit: Christofer Sundberg from Avalanche tweeted LA employees told him they needed two more years to complete the game so I guess that answers that.)

Anyway, they already said there's no interest among the developers to finish the game.

Margins are so small with licensed properties that only some mad or absolutely desperate developer/publisher would agree to work on an AAA Star Wars game.

For the N64?  Yeah, I remember renting that one.  It was hard as balls because the controls were terrible, but it was cool.

Ah, I see the reason people might be disappointed about 1313.  I'm not sure I got a "Star Wars" vibe from the video (no Jedi or anything), but it looks really good.  I always liked the "blaster and body armor" half of Star Wars better anyway.  I loved my trooper in SWTOR.
