Well now that Disney said they are outsourcing to other devs, there are many I would love to work on a Star Wars game.

Rockteady would be a great one.
Dream ones for me as well would be:

Bethesda
Raven/Monolith
Obsidian
Firaxis (I would love a Civ type game within the Star Wars universe)
Naughty Dog
Epic
Pandemic

Among others. But it will be interesting who comes to the franchise. Star Wars is a easy selling franchise especially when the new trilogy hits. Many devs would love to play in that sandbox.

Called it. Honestly, Lucasarts deserved to be shut down.

The Force Unleashed games suck and I honestly don't care for the lego or kinect games at all. Worse enough, there hasn't been any sequels to any of their franchises that made them a success during the xbox/ps2/gc gen. No sequels to:

KOTOR
Battlefront
Republic Commando
Jedi Knight

And yet The Force Unleashed gets a f**king sequel. Say what you want about Activision, EA, Ubisoft, etc. At least they've released successful and popular games this gen. Lucasarts has been slipping so much. I know they have problems with the developer for Battlefront III, but they could have given another studio the opportunity instead of cancelling it. And 1313 can still be possible instead of cancelling it. LucasArts needs to get their s**t together.

This is the opposite extreme of what Activision does.

They did a decent job with Arkham Asylum, sharpened their tools mighty fine with Arkham City, but can they start AC sharp with Star Wars?

I mainly suggested them because they've shown they can take pre-existing material, stay true to the source and not just rely on brand name but actually make a game that's fun and well crafted. First time could have been luck, but second time proved they know what they are doing as a studio in my opinion...

Sad about 1313 but not really about Lucasarts. They have been meandering for a while now in the realm of mediocrity.

Pretty much. I wish some people would realize they aren't a perfect match for every game just because they made one good series.

Highly praised Batman games don't exactly support equally praised games based on another franchise, don't rush to what might be a disappointment

Well said Aziz.

Don't get me wrong, they're good with Batman, but damn, I feel like they get too much praise and get suggested for every series aka the Brad Bird effect

I dont know why some of you think this can only mean good news. I hear "we want to license our games out" and i think Activision and EA with their movie properties. I know LA has been struggling recently, but they are responsible for some GREAT titles. Im not sure theyll be able to recreate that with the license model. I hope so tho, im hoping Disney is really committed to handing over their property for solid titles, rather than the Activsion cash grab model.

They did something no one else did, they made two FANTASTIC Batman games. They are clearly a talented dev team. They deff dont get too much praise. If anything, they get too little.

They were responsible, 7, 8 years ago but this generation has been a complete letdown since the beginning of this generation.

Say what you want about Activision and EA. but at least they actually had hits both commercially and successfully.

There's no way Rocksteady gets too little praise.

Maybe they can, or maybe they can't. Honestly, my judgement is clouded by the fact that I'm actually tired of hearing their name get brought up for licenses.

Yea and i blame the upper management. Not allowing your teams to develop a sure winner in Battlefront 3? C'mon. Im still wary of the licensing out model, as everyone else should be too.

They're just a hot developer at the moment because they are recently riding high off two stellar developed titles. Im sure a lot of ppl wanna see what they can do outside of the Batman universe. I mean same goes for a studio like Naughty Dog or Sucker Punch. They've had nothing but hits lately, ppl wanna see them attached to their fav franchises.

Agreed. It was a stupid choice by LucasArts to fully cancel Battlefront 3 even with all the problems with the developer. Give it to another developer and let them start from scratch.

None of the developers who made LucasArts what it was haven't been around in ten years.
