No new game announcements were made.

According to the new post on StarWars.com, the new brand is the official identity for all gaming titles from Lucasfilm. There is no official word on if games from EA will continue to have the branding placed in the logo of all their titles so far, but this decision would seemingly go against that branding which has been in place. LucasArts is probably the better-known name these days, having delivered dozens of games throughout the 90s and early 2000s. Star Wars Rebel Assault, Star Wars: TIE Fighter, Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire are just some of the games developed by the studio, but LucasArts also published a bunch more, including Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (developed by Obsidian Entertainment) and Star Wars: The Old Republic (developed by BioWare).

And with Lucasfilm and the galaxy far, far away entering a new and unprecedented phase of creativity, so will the world of Lucasfilm Games — developed in collaboration with the finest studios across the industry. Due in part to the renewed recent popularity Star Wars is seeing under Disney, along with a few recent video game successes, all Star Wars games will now fall under the newly formed Lucasfilm Games banner.

Meanwhile, minority Republicans who oppose broad new tax increases said NY has a spending, not a revenue problem. Cuomo's plan calls for an aggressive public health framework and steps to combat the state's deficit.

When Lucasfilm was acquired by Disney at the end of 2012, they soon chose to shut down LucasArts in April 2013 (putting an end to development of anticipated games like Star Wars 1313 and First Assault), and penning a deal with EA in an exclusive partnership. EA CEO Andrew Wilson announced in June a year ago that the studio plans to "double down" on Star Wars content for the foreseeable future.

The huge amount of themed ads Star Wars with which Disney bombarded us on the occasion of the last Investor Day generated a wave of enthusiasm and curiosity that will hardly run out in a short time: unfortunately, however, to receive comprehensive answers to all our questions we will have to wait a bit.
