Disney’s recent multi-billion dollar acquisition of Lucasfilm included LucasArts, the development studios that are responsible for the Star Wars video game franhcise. Earlier this year, LucasArts revealed one of the best looking games of E3 2012 with Star Wars 1313. A report out of the recently acquired company claims that it’s “business as usual”, according to IGN.

“For the time being all projects are business as usual. We are excited about all the possibilities that Disney brings,” said the company.

Fans that are waiting patiently for the new game grew concerned when Disney announced its plans for the Star Wars franchise to expand into social and mobile games, while saying nothing about in-house titles like 1313. The company said that it plans to license the Star Wars franchise to third-party developers, allowing them to use the Star Wars license for games on consoles.

Who’ll get this license? Disney had no details to share about future plans, other than the vague strategy that was laid out. Earlier this year at E3, we got a chance to take a look at Star Wars 1313 and it was one of the most promising games of the show.
