Lucasfilm Games Is Being Resurrected By Disney

Posted by Dustin on March 20, 2019 at 05:48 PM CST


UPDATE: Gamesutra have been contacted by Disney to clarify. Thanks to Jeff M. for the heads up!

A Disney spokesperson has reached out to inform Gamasutra that the below job postings do not indicate a revival of the Lucasfilm Games brand, but apparently are for a segment of an existing business that coincidentally shares the name of the LucasArts precursor.

The representative sought to make clear that Disney is continuing its licensed games strategy with partners like EA and NetMarble.
