LucasArts has been closed by Disney, Star Wars 1313 cancelled

Star Wars 1313 has been canned as the development studio has been put to the sword by Disney Interactive.

The studio was acquired by Disney and such a news is really disappointing because staff were laid off too. They have released the official statement as well which you can check out below.

“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.

“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.”

The next Star Wars game could be developed by a third-party studio because Disney has stopped internal development.
