LucasArts began developing games in May 1982 by George Lucas himself, originally titled LucasFilm Games, and originally served as Chairman. The studio later changed its name to LucasArts during a company reorganization.LucasArts created several well received games in the Star Wars and Indiana Jones series, as well as other franchises. The Walt Disney company eventually dismantled LucasArts after acquiring its parent company LucasFilm, and laid off the majority of LucasArts staff, as well as shutting down all internal projects, including the anticipated Star Wars: 1313. LucasArts now operates as a licensor.
Electronic Arts now operates as sole developer of Star Wars games for the core gaming audience, with Disney Interacting developing for the casual audience with LucasArts as its licensor. Electronic Arts is currently developing Star Wars: Battlefront III, and Mass Effect developer Bioware (owned by Electronic Arts) is developing their own Star Wars title. Bioware has also developed Star Wars games ranging from Knights of the Old Republic to the MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic.
