With Disney recently purchasing LucasArts, many gamers are wondering what will happen to the studio working the upcoming 3rd person action game Star Wars 1313 and the rumored Star Wars: Frontline Assault.

Well, IGN spoke to LucasArts to find out the answer, and received the following statement...

"For the time being all projects are business as usual. We are excited about all the possibilities that Disney brings."
 
LucasArts has told anyone seeking further details to refer to the official press release.
 
Speaking at a conference call about the recent purchase of the company, Disney's CEO Bob Iger said that the development of mobile and social games rather than console games will be more of the focus moving into the future.  
 
Also, according to Tech Crunch Notes, Iger said that the company would "Opportunistically" pursue console games in the form of licensing out the brand to other companies.
