I don't have a link yet, but I've just seen this pop up on twitter - Thoughts? EDIT - Official Statement from Disney Link
THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY COMPLETES LUCASFILM ACQUISITION While not a press release from LucasArts I thought this worth posting as LucasArts is now owned by Disney instead of George Lucas. At this point it's anyone's guess as to what will happen with LucasArts, LucasArts's existing games, contracts, website, Star Wars fan forums like this one and games in development. But considering how poorly LucasArts has performed over the last few years or so I'm hopeful that things won't get any worse.
LucasArts' demise is still fresh in everyone's minds and you might wonder if another look into LucasArts' history is worth it. Well, Gameinformer's LucasArts Post-mortem article "Fall Of The Empire: How Inner Turmoil Brought Down LucasArts" is definitely worth the read. It goes into the mismanagement, the unrealistic ambitions, George Lucas crazyness and more! Some quotes: On Jim Ward: On Lucas' imput: On what could have been: On LucasArts' relationship with the defunct Battlefront III project's Free Radical: And there's so much more George Lucas madness and tragic anecdotes. "B.J. Dart". Haha.
