Lucasfilm Games is a division of Lucasfilm, which is itself a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company.

History

In 1982, George Lucas started the Lucasfilm Games Group, part of the Lucasfilm Computer Division, the latter of which was a division that was started in 1979 when George Lucas wanted to branch out into computers.

The Lucasfilm Games Group became known Lucasfilm Games when it began releasing games in 1984. The Lucasfilm Graphics Group was sold to Steve Jobs in 1986 and became known as Pixar. What remained of the Lucasfilm Computer Division was retained as part of Industrial Light and Magic.

In 1990, Lucasfilm consolidated Lucasfilm Games, along with Industrial Light and Magic and Skywalker Sound, into LucasArts. The next year, Lucasfilm Games became the only division to be known as LucasArts, and the other LucasArts divisions were consolidated into Lucas Digital.

In 2006, Disney purchased Pixar. In 2012, Disney purchased Lucasfilm and its subsidiaries, including LucasArts and Industrial Light and Magic. This brought the three parts of the original Lucasfilm Computer Division together under the same parent company once again. In April 2013, Disney halted all development at LucasArts, leaving less than ten employees so LucasArts could continue to act as a licensor and digital publisher.

In 2014, Disney ceased using the LucasArts brand name and resumed using the Lucasfilm Games brand name.
