games will now be brought together under a single banner, Lucasfilm Games.Announced today on StarWars.com, the company revealed that, “Lucasfilm Games is now the official identity for all gaming titles from Lucasfilm, a name that encompasses the company’s rich catalog of video games and its eye toward the future.”
It marks a similar move to Xbox Game Studios and PlayStation Studios, both of which group multiple developers under a single banner. All future Star Wars games will see the new Lucasfilm Games banner displayed. Check out a sizzle reel below:Lucasfilm Games now also has dedicated Twitter and Facebook pages, “which will deliver breaking news and more directly to fans.” No new games or teases were made as part of the announcement.
The name is actually a return for the Lucasfilm Games brand, which ran throughout the ’80s (and created the likes of Maniac Mansion, The Secret of Monkey Island, and more) until being rebranded as LucasArts in 1990.
What Lucasfilm Games are on the way is a bigger question – following Star Wars Squadrons, there aren’t a lot of Star Wars games officially lined up, although LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is on its way, and we know Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is intended as the start of a new franchise.
