    LucasArts is now closed. Which Game Dev company should take over?

    Disney has closed down LucasArts (game development studios), This means that "Star Wars 1313" will either be delayed for a long time or turn into "vaporware".

    Who do you think should take over making Star Wars & Indiana Jones games now? That being said, Most of the Recent star Wars games were made by a 3rd party dev company. Traveller's Tales, Bioware, Terminal Reality (Kinect game). The Force Unleashed I and II were the last finished games.

    I always liked how Bioware handled Star Wars.  While I couldn't get into the MMO, it was polished and well done.  Will they do it?  Maybe.  But I don't know how many good games get passed off to another developer, only to turn out to be a horrible game.

      It would be funny if it went full circle. SW: Knights of the Old Republic >> Mass Effect series and then go back to Star Wars with their  "current" game engine. It's true the have been some terrible licensed games. SW is no exception.

    Bioware would be good but I think other game developers could do a great job too. I'd say my top choice would be Bethesda. Amazing graphics, large open world games, has experience in projectile and melee (for star wars it would be lighsabers) mechanics.

    Other than that, Bungie. Their work on the Halo series could easily be transformed to star wars.

      It would be kind of interesting to see a Star Wars game in the style of Skyrim.  I saw Dual wielding melee or even Melee magic wielding characters.  Hm, Bungie and a Star Wars and a shooter huh? could work too.
