The Dismantling of LucasFilm Continues

As Disney looks forward, the dismantling of LucasFilm continues.  Less than two weeks after the layoffs at LucasFilm Animation, Disney has decided to shut down LucasArts.

Today, GameInformer.com posted the article "Disney Closes Game Publisher LucasArts."  Matt Helgeson reported that the official statement from Disney reads as follows:
"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."  Source: GameInformer.com.
We first reported, on Facebook and Twitter, that this was the rumor going around back on March 21.

Updated at 9:27 pm - With the shutdown of LucasArts, Variety is reporting that this has also lead to layoff at ILM.
"...the layoffs that followed has had a ripple effect within Lucasfilm: Layoffs at Industrial Light & Magic.  Lucasfilm has long had a strategy of sharing technical resources and staff among visual effects, animation and games. But with production finished on the “Clone Wars” animated series and the next Star Wars animated series not yet in production, and the closing of LucasArts, a portion of its staff was left working only for ILM’s vfx business."  Source: Variety

We appreciate Disney and LucasFilm and are looking forward to
the sequel trilogy; however, we love The Clone Wars!  We want more than bonus content! We want the many stories that the creators have set out to tell to be completed. We ask that the powers that be to please reconsider this decision.
