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

Does that mean no more SW games at all?

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

It probably won't mean no more Star Wars games- there'll be games as long as it sells- but it's certainly sad news. THQ going bankrupt has nothing on this.

No clue. I'm pretty sure 1313 and First Assault have been killed though. When the say cancelled, it usually means death otherwise they'd say put on hold.

Nah, it just means no more good Star Wars games. Expect to see Star Wars: Galactic Rulers on your iDevice this fall! Only $29.99 for 1,000 Parsecs!

(Yes, I know what a parsec is and how you can't "buy" a parsec, that's... that's part of the joke.)

When was the last good Star Wars game? Force Unleashed? Battlefront? KotOR?

They deserved that only for Kinect Star Wars.

What the hell? No Battlefront 3/First Assault? I've been waiting for that game for years, and I was so excited when they showed the trailer.

**** you Disney. No way I'm buying your kiddy Clone Wars baby game that'll probably come out.
