While we here at Elder-Geek have been reporting on speculative lay-offs coming from the development team of Lucasart’s The Force Unleashed II (and at least one canceled iteration of The Force Unleashed III). Going unconfirmed for several weeks, Lucasarts finally confirmed the downsizing to Gamasutra in an official statement.
“LucasArts is reorganizing its teams to better address the needs of the internal studio. ” The statement read, “Unfortunately, this means adjusting staffing. LucasArts continues to be committed to creating a first-class internal studio and to fostering relationships with trusted external partners in order to deliver quality games that amaze and inspire fans.”
