Disney is Reviving Lucasfilm Games

Although Disney’s acquisition of the STAR WARS franchise from George Lucas was huge back in 2013, it wasn’t without setbacks. A big one for some was the closure of LucasArts, a label known for producing top-tier STAR WARS games, along with inspired original titles. However, it looks like Disney is primed to bring that era back in style.

A report from PCGamesN suggests that the company will revisit some old-school gaming goodness with a new division, Lucasfilm Games. This comes from job listings located on the Disney Careers site. The company is looking to fill a number of positions, from producers to artists and other creative roles. Based on the job listing, Lucasfilm Games will focus on a number of “interactive products.” These include games in the STAR WARS brand, along with other Lucasfilm IP. Though no consoles are mentioned by names, the games will be available for “all digital platforms.” This is likely to include consoles and PC, and perhaps even mobile.

One of these listings points out that the team seeks “experience and knowledge of best practices in the game industry.” It sounds like Disney is ready to re-enter the game market with this new venture. It’ll be the first time it’s done so directly since the failure of the DISNEY INFINITY toy line-up, which closed up shop back in 2016. The company has not officially announced any Lucasfilm Games details at the moment. However, it could do so at Star Wars Celebration, E3, or even Disney’s own D23 Expo.

Don't get your hopes up, this is not a new LucasArts.

What I skimmed over implies that headline is misleading and that the new "Lucasfilm Games" isn't going to make any actual games.

Although even prior to the Disney acquisition, they were licensing to other companies, such as "Tales of Monkey Island".

Yeah. I suspect "Lucasfilm Games" is just going to be the department at Disney that negotiates Star Wars and/or Indiana Jones games with companies and oversees their development/goals.

Like if you're X developer and want to develop a sh**ty cell phone game about BB-8, you'd start by talking to Lucasfilm Games.
