Today it was announced that Lucasfilm has now created their own gaming label called “Lucasfilm Games”. What this means for the future of many games connected to the Lucasfilm label is unsure, but an announcement on the Star Wars official website said this:
StarWars.com is thrilled to reveal that Lucasfilm Games is now the official identity for all gaming titles from Lucasfilm, a name that encompasses the company’s rich catalog of video games and its eye toward the future. To mark this new era, Lucasfilm Games has launched social channels on Twitter (@LucasfilmGames) and Facebook (@LucasfilmGames), which will deliver breaking news and more directly to fans. You can watch a special sizzle reel celebrating the history of games from Lucasfilm below; the Lucasfilm Games logo, featured above, will appear in all future Lucasfilm Games titles.
I am not sure if this means that Lucasfilm Games will be developing any of these titles going forward and that will be interesting indeed for companies like EA who create games and distribute them specifically for Lucasfilm.
I’ll be keeping a sharp eye out on this development as I am very much a Star Wars gaming enthusiast and this could impact the gaming community in a big way depending on what happens with any of the titles they own.
Here’s an official sizzle reel showing all the games currently active under the Lucasfilm label – most of them also linked to Electronic Arts (EA):
And a quick SWTOR gaming update from me – I will be bringing back some of the SWTOR gaming post series’ that I used to write way back. I think now would be a great time to continue writing and blogging about the game I have dedicated hundreds of hours to playing over the years.
If you’re a Star Wars gamer, this news could be right up your alley so stay tuned for more gaming updates from yours truly!
