LucasArts Responds To Firings


Posted June 10, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

Friday, we reported the rumor that staffers had been dropped from LucasArts. George's company responded to Kotaku yesterday with the official word that, yes, lay-offs took place, but no, the company is not in trouble:

 "I can confirm we had layoffs yesterday; they were in the studio," said LucasArts spokeswoman Margaret Grohne, "They had to do with where we are in our product life cycles."

Another Lucas rumor that was shot down: The company says they are not planning on ending their internal development.

"We remain committed to both our internal teams and working with external partners," she says. "[Websites] are definitely reading too much into the layoffs; [LucasArts] is not halting internal development."
