[Kotaku] How LucasArts Fell Apart

Two years later, LucasArts is no more. The once-revered studio responsible for the production and distribution of Star Wars video games shut down in April, and although the name lives on for licensing purposes, the developers are gone. Promising games have been canceled, staff have been scattered, and Star Wars is now in the hands of Electronic Arts, where it will be used for a Battlefront reboot and an action-adventure game helmed by the studio Visceral.

How LucasArts Fell Apart


How the great adventure game studio fell. Really, why did they do it, it was the best! I'm still looking forward to more Indiana Jones adventure games, I'd buy them all up if they'd only make them. frown.gif

Maybe Tell Tale will do it.
