LucasArts, some company that put itself back into our collective hearts last year but is now trying its hardest to not stay there, has laid off an undisclosed number of employees. This depressing news comes, even more depressingly, from that eternal spring of fine journalism IGN

Kotaku have a response from a LucasArts rep, and they confirm some layoffs.
"LucasArts recently made a minor adjustment in staffing to help us better address the needs of the business," said a LucasArts rep. "We remain committed to our internal studio – and to fostering relationships with trusted external partners – in order to deliver quality games that amaze and inspire fans."
