Oh well, its not as if they produced anything worthwhile for ages anyway (Star Wars Kinect, oh god). I just hope Disney flogs off some of the IPs, eg Monkey Island, or at least gets a third party publisher to do something worthwhile with them.

Edit - from Wiki:

On April 3, 2013, Disney confirmed that LucasArts would cease to operate as a video game developer and serve as a licensor. As a result, all of its future projects were cancelled, and most of its staff was laid off from the company. Disney indicated that the new business model would "[minimize] the company's risk while achieving a broader portfolio of quality Star Wars games."
