Credit goes to Pendragoon from the PS4 board. This is bad news. No more Star Wars 1313 or First Assault.

Honestly, Lucas Arts hasn't been good since it gave up making awesome adventure games for the PC in the 90s.
There's been nothing particularly stand-out made just by them, and if anything we can blame them for ruining KotOR 2 by forcing a rush-out job.
Force Unleashed 1 was good, but needed more work and Force Unleashed 2 sorted out the combat engine while also providing no effort in story, level design or indeed practically anything else.

If this happened 20 years ago it would be a tragedy, but as it stands now this is more like the inevitable conclusion to Old Yeller's story (spoiler warning).

I suppose they haven't been all that great recently, but I'm more upset that we don't get to see what their new projects had to offer. I was really looking forward to both of them. Now we'll never see how good they could have been (or bad, I guess). -_-
