Disney to Shut LucasArts Videogame Unit

Thursday, April 4, 2013

Walt Disney Co. is closing LucasArts to cut costs. The Wall Street Journal reports that the once-pioneering San Francisco videogame unit of George Lucas's "Star Wars" empire had become a shadow of its former self. Disney said it will focus on licensing “Star Wars” content rather than developing games internally, Bloomberg News says.
