Somehow, LucasArts has returned.
Today, StarWars.com announced that all Star Wars games in development and all current titles will be moved beneath a new development focus and banner: Lucasfilm Games.
While it’s presently unclear if this is just a new label with new talent assigned to it, or if it has the makings of a whole new studio altogether, StarWars.com paints a picture similar to a coalition (like an Alliance, as in one to restore the Galactic Republic) of studios, developers, and minds to work together in creating the best Star Wars gaming experiences possible.
Here’s the sizzle reel that came along with the announcement:
“StarWars.com is thrilled to reveal that Lucasfilm Games is now the official identity for all gaming titles from Lucasfilm, a name that encompasses the company’s rich catalog of video games and its eye toward the future.”LUCASFILM GAMES BEGINS A NEW ERA, StarWars.com
What does this all mean? I have no real idea. It’s nice to see Star Wars renewing their focus on gaming, and really putting their best foot forward into the fastest growing medium on earth.
Whatever’s coming next, I can’t wait to play it.
