“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," LucasArts parent company LucasFilm said in a statement. I was wrong one more time! I was hopeful that there was a management team at Lucas that could rescue the Disney game business. I guess Disney looks at games like it looks at toys. Licensing is an easy profit. It makes sense. Will movies be the net thing outsourced? Marvel movies by Lions Gate? LOLIn-house control of games was a priority when Mr. Iger announced the Playdom acquisition. Playdom was a roll-up of a few social game studios and Disney paid dearly for that business. Now, what is the company strategy for gaming? If Lucas is going to have a write-off, why not put the knife to the whole game mess?W.D.
