LucasArts Interview
6:00 AM | Tristan Kane | Comment on this story

HomeLan has published an interview with Simon Jeffrey, president of LucasArts. LucasArts is celebrating their 20th Anniversary this year and this interview largely focusses on the current direction of the company with questions ranging from the state of the relationship of founder George Lucas to the company, to more specific questions about their upcoming Star Wars Galaxies. Here is an excerpt:

HomeLAN - While most of the Star Wars games release in the past year have received good critical notices, some might say that there are still too many Star Wars games being released. Do you think there is a danger of over-saturating the franchise?

Simon Jeffery - Absolutely there is a danger of over-saturating the franchise - which is why we will be doing less and less Star Wars games going forward. We want every Star Wars game launch to be seen as an event in itself.

This is an interesting article for Mac gamers, not only as it pertains to games that will almost certainly be ported, but also the comments it makes on the direction of LucasArts and the gaming industry in general. To read it in full, please use the link below.
