The lights are on
LucasArts President Paul Meegan stepped down from his position today after joining the company two years ago. All current LucasArts projects will continue, a representative confirmed to Game Informer.
“Paul has been a valuable member of the Lucasfilm leadership team and
we wish him the best in his future endeavors," said COO Mich Chau. "We remain committed to
our current projects and will be re-evaluating LucasArts’ leadership
needs to ensure that we make the right decisions to keep the studio
LucasArts says 2 members of its leadership team, Kevin Parker and Gio Corsi, will co-lead the studio for the interim until a replacement is found. Last month, LucasArts lost creative director Clint Hocking to Valve.
Dang, Lucas Arts' reputation can't afford to take too many more hits. It's been in decline for a while anyway.
Labors will continue.
Everyone seems to be stepping down lately, but at least internal projects are still alive...
I hope the new president isn't a total moron. I don't know who makes decisions about game development at LucasArts, but whoever they are should be fired. They have three franchises just waiting for sequels that fans would go nuts over (Battlefront, KotOR, Republic Commando), and instead, they dump money into these glorified tech demos like TFU and Star Wars Unchart- I mean 1313.
I think he was right in stepping down after 2 years of ignoring the throngs of fans screaming, "shut up and take our money!".
Hopefully that wont mess up 1313.
