Weren't they pretty far into the development of 1313? From what I've heard, a lot of people were really keen on it. I haven't really followed it though.

Holy *bleep*, this is terrible news for their 300+ staff, hope they can find work, that studio has made some awesome games in the past. 1313 was looking really good, one of my favourite from last year's E3.

Why does it surprise people? The only thing Disney were interested about was the rights to make the films. Still a right twat move from them.

THIS SUCKS!! ALL I REALLY WANT IS THE FORCE UNLEASHED III. THEY HAVE TO FINISH THAT TRILOGY. 1313 LOOKS BORING. FINISH THE UNLEASHED SERIES. IT SHOULD TIE RIGHT INTO REVENGE OF THE SITH. AND THAT SHOULD END ALL PREQUELS. BUT I HAVE TO SAY, I CANNOT WAIT FOR 7,8,9!!!

I'm just going to point out here that all of the studio's woes didn't exactly happen because of Disney. Things have been going downhill for years, as the article does attempt to point out, and it's clear that Disney, after buying the company, decided that its current direction wasn't worth the resources.

Many of the best Star Wars game series to come out of LucasArts were not actually developed by them. Knights of the Old Republic was BioWare, then Obsidian (with LucasArts being the publisher that rushed the second game). Battlefront was developed by Pandemic, SW:TOR by BioWare Austin, etc. Even Monkey Island, for all its praise, is credited to two of Double Fine's biggest names.

Even so, I was hoping 1313 might come out and actually succeed. Sad to see so many lose their jobs over this.
