This doesnt mean that there will be no more Star Wars Games. Disney is just selling the License to other Publishers from now on. That means that for example EA or Ubisoft could buy the License and make a Star Wars game.
So for Star Wars games the closing of LucasArts could be actually really good.
Still it really sucks what Disney does with SW at the moment. First they stopped The Clone Wars and now 150 really talented people are loosing their job :/

I hope someone picks up the license to 1313 as that looked very interesting, but I have a feeling whatever dev who got that game would start over from the begining (putting the game in the Unreal 4 engine, for example). Still, if they make a great game I wouldn't mind waiting a few years.

Actually, I'd love if someone got the license to make a sequel to Republic Commando!

Okay I know EA don't exactly have the best track record but they do put out pretty decent games to play. They're not the worse thing in the gaming industry.

It's also not the death of star wars as other have pointed out. third party studios could just buy the liscense to make a star wars game.

some of the best star wars games were third party and weren't developed by lucasart.

Don't worry, Lucas Arts died a long time ago. MOST of the star wars games that came out since 2000 were just another company with the Lucas Arts logo slapped onto it. All this means is we're missing out on more of those mediocre The Force Unleashed games and 1313 ... I wanted 1313 :'(
