The repercussions of Disney’s acquisition on Lucasarts, Lucasfilm’s game division, will no doubt be felt eventually — but in the short term, with certain games already deep in production? We’d expect games like Star Wars 1313 to be left well alone for the time being. According to Lucasarts itself, it’s business as usual for the high budget Star Wars title focusing on the world of bounty hunters.
“For the time being all projects are business as usual,” read a statement provided to IGN. “We are excited about all the possibilities that Disney brings.”
Disney itself has been very keen to expand and invest more into gaming, but it hasn’t been all that successful to date. It’ll be interesting to see how it handles Lucasarts in the long term.
