LucasArts CEO Jim Ward has been interviewed at Game Daily where he confirms the new company strategy of increasing internal development after the recent period of rebuilding.
"LucasArts is working on three or four games with outside developers and, internally, two are in production with that number expected to ramp up to four in the next few years as the company's game studio expands from 60-70 people today to over 150 a year from now. At that point, the plan is for the company to license out fewer titles and to do more of the development internally."The full interview is here.
"Many people think of LucasArts as being the 'Star Wars' company, and traditionally, I suppose, that's been our heaviest SKU. However, the plan is absolutely to broaden our interactive gaming sphere with our 'Indiana Jones' IP, and with a number of new intellectual properties, most notably 'Mercenaries,' which we launched in January and which is becoming a brand new franchise for us."
