    Well, to be honest.. It's not like they've done much in the way of great things lately. It's sad for the people who lose their jobs but meh..

    well, how else to raise profits?
    disney infinity just pushed them into black numbers and making a new game is such a risky thing to do. but removing 25% of the workforce is a save thing to make numbers look pretty

    Is this really right?

    Calling Disney Interactive a branch, I mean. It's more like an aborted twig than anything else.

    LucasArts was an affiliate of LucasFilms. They got it with the purchase, whether they wanted it or not.

    LucasArts, I'm pretty sure, was liquidated once LucasFilms was purchased. Star Wars games are being outsourced to Activision when needed. Although the only Star Wars game on the horizon is Battlefront III.

    I thought it was EA who got the exclusive star wars licence right now?
