Electronic Arts announced that it is taking over all publishing, marketing, and distribution responsibilities previously held by LucasArts Ltd. for upcoming MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic.
EA says it updated its global publishing agreement with LucasArts in order to have these publishing duties "centralized for efficiency", claiming that this will benefit customer service and other operations. LucasArts, as the licensor of the Star Wars property, will continue to collaborate on the online game's design and marketing.
So what exactly is LEC doing right now besides publishing LEGO Star Wars III? Well, it seems that they're working on a Star Wars Kinect title that will be available for the 360 Christmas 2011. "I've seen a bunch of the game and it's super compelling," declares a source.
