Ah, what could have been. In the wake of EA and Disney's blockbuster deal to make new Star Wars games, the developers of the Just Cause series have come out and said that, a few years back, they came very close to making a game for former owners Lucasarts.
A former Avalanche manager (Oskar Burman) and the studio's current Chief Creative Officer Christofer Sundberg jumped on Twitter yesterday to talk about the project that never was.
@OskarBurman If they had given us the deal back then Lucas Arts would be alive today. A massive SW open world game! We would have rocked it.

Given how fantastic Just Cause 2 was, you would indeed have rocked it. Oh Lucasarts.
