Studio releases code for two Star Wars games

After the announcement that Disney set the closure for LucasArts, LucasFilm’s game design studio, Raven Software decided to release the code for two games in the Star Wars franchise it developed for the studio.

With that, the games “Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast” and “Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy” will have the code of its single-player parts released. This is an old request from the modder community, which was taken care of as a LucasArts tribute.

“Raven is sad to hear about the closure of LucasArts. We respect them and we enjoy working with them over the years,” the company said in a statement to Kotaku Australia. “We wish the best for all the talented people who have been laid off and hope that they can get good jobs in industry stadiums.”

The third-person action games were launched in 2002 and 2003, respectively. “Jedi Outcast” was the first in the series and came out for PC,Mac, GameCube andXbox. The “Jedi Academy” was the sequel, with versions for PC, Xbox and Mac.
