Disney Shuts Down LucasArts & Cancels 1313

Jay Cochran - April 03, 2013
The video game site Kotaku.com is reporting that Disney has for all intent and purposes, shut down LucasArts. According to sources some 150 people got the pink slip this morning and that both the video game studio's current projects Star Wars: First Assault and Star Wars 1313 have been canceled.
Disney plans on continuing to use the LucasArts name for licensing purposes only going forward.

“After evaluating our position in the games market, we’ve decided to shift LucasArts from an internal development to a licensing model, minimizing the company’s risk while achieving a broader portfolio of quality Star Wars games," LucasArts parent company LucasFilm said in a statement. "As a result of this change, we’ve had layoffs across the organization. We are incredibly appreciative and proud of the talented teams who have been developing our new titles.”
