A Bittersweet End to LucasArts


Recommended Posts

LucasArts is officially no more. My personal feelings on this is bittersweet. I feel for the 150+ employees that lost their jobs over this decision; however, LucasArts has failed to impress for some time now. The only games I played and thoroughly enjoyed wasn't even developed by them, but rather BioWare (Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2). I played The Force Unleashed games and though they were okay...they were just..."okay". They were very short games which could have been so much more. So am I upset with Disney? Nope, I can understand their decision on this.




1982 - 2013

I'd say that LucasArts got stagnant there the last 5-6 years. I'm still skeptical about Disney taking over everything on the gaming side of things, but they did a great job with most of the Marvel movies, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt there.


I remember when the fist few Dark Forces games came out, man I loved Kyle Katarn. Speaking of which, it's to bad the Dark Forces Mod was ended after about 6 levels.

KoTOR 2 was developed by Obsidian :p.


Anyways, it's always a shame to see a lot of people lose their jobs, but they just haven't been able to develop games very well in a long time. I believe it will be for the better in the long run as Disney will not license out the different licenses to more qualified developers.
