REPORT: Disney to Revive Lucasfilm Games

New job listings at Disney have revealed the company is searching for, among other things, a producer, brand art coordinator and brand marketing coordinator for Lucasfilm Games.

George Lucas founded Lucasfilm Games in 1982 as a subdivision of Lucasfilm, and with it, produced video games such as Labyrinth: The Computer Game and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Action Game until 1990, when the company was renamed LucasArts and regained the development license for Star Wars.

After The Walt Disney Company acquired Lucasfilm, the video game subdivision was downsized to function solely as a licensor, while the exclusive Star Wars development license was given to Electronic Arts, also known as EA. Since then, just two video games have been released: Star Wars: Battlefront and its sequel.

Since no official announcement has been made, it is difficult to determine what Disney has planned for Lucasfilm Games, or whether Disney intends to revoke EA's development license.

There have been a few video game cancelations in recent years, but at least one more Star Wars game is currently being developed by Respawn Entertainment, a subsidiary of EA. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a single-player action game that revolves around a young Jedi Padawan who survived Senator Palpatine's Order 66 in Revenge of the Sith.
