I wouldn't say 1313 ISN'T gonna happen... Not yet. I think it's gonna wind up going through some changes.
A buddy of mine with ties to LA was telling me about the layoffs coming... Been coming for a while.
I'll be honest. People are flipping their wigs over this in the fan site world... Why? What's LA put out in recent years that truly was a mind-blowing game? They've been lackluster shells of their former selves... They went from Dark Forces/Jedi Knight and X-Wing/TIE Fighter to basically half-assed clones on consoles.
The last things LA put out that I truly felt were special, were Bounty Hunter, Republic Commando (which I was sour on at first and warmed up to), and sadly, KOTOR... and all 3 were contracted out.
The company was a mess in 2005, according to my friend. I think people are waxing nostalgic on it, and forgetting the "what have you done for me lately" aspect of Lucasarts... They really haven't been relevant for quite some time. Masters of Teras Kasi anyone?
