Lucasfilm has resurrected Lucasfilm Games and as of now, the brand will be the home for all video game properties for the Star Wars franchise now “and beyond”.

Lucasfilm Games was formed way back in 1982 and was rebranded as LucasArts in the 1990s’.

Over the years the studio has given us classic Star Wars titles such as X-Wing, Rogue Squadron, Knights of the Old Republic and more.  However following the acquisition of Lucasfilm by Disney, LucasArts was no more.

But now Lucasfilm Games is back and with the announcement comes a snazzy “Lucasfilm Games Sizzle” trailer featuring recent video game releases and DLC collaborations of the Star Wars franchise from Jedi: Fallen Order, Squadrons, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and more.

 

Over on Star Wars.com a statement was also released announcing the news!

Lucasfilm’s legacy in gaming stretches back decades. And with Lucasfilm and the galaxy far, far away entering a new and unprecedented phase of creativity, so will the world of Lucasfilm Games — developed in collaboration with the finest studios across the industry.

StarWars.com is thrilled to reveal that Lucasfilm Games is now the official identity for all gaming titles from Lucasfilm, a name that encompasses the company’s rich catalogue of video games and its eye toward the future.

To mark this new era, Lucasfilm Games has launched social channels on Twitter (@LucasfilmGames) and Facebook (@LucasfilmGames), which will deliver breaking news and more directly to fans. You can watch a special sizzle reel celebrating the history of games from Lucasfilm below; the Lucasfilm Games logo, featured above, will appear in all future Lucasfilm Games titles.

Going forward while it might appear that much hasn’t changed, it could mean that Disney will be pumping more resources into the Star Wars video game franchises.

As long as it results in a Knights of the Old Republic 3 or remakes of the first two games, I’ll be forever a happy Star Wars fan.
