Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast Latest News
In case you were unaware, Lucasfilm has 'freed themselves' of the Star Wars Expanded Universe by declaring it not official canon to Star Wars. That's so they're free to explore the new trilogy in the works.
However it also means that every game up until this point is also outside the canon, but Lucasfilm have said every new title from this moment on will be considered official.
In the wake of corporate Disney stomping through LucasArts like a runaway AT-AT, cancelling all internal game development, Raven Software has released the source code for their Jedi Knight titles.
Raven created Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy on behalf of LucasArts. The studio hopes the fans of these iconic instalments have fun playing around in the code.
Singularity's Raven Software has posted a job ad for new blood to join them on "an exciting next generation title", while another mentions they're "at work on a first-person shooter".
The studio's last full release was Singularity, and Wolfenstein before that, but they produced Call of Duty DLC for Black Ops and Modern Warfare 3 in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
Singularity developer Raven Software has had 40 developers trimmed from the studio according to sources, leaving it with one development team.
Activision comment this is a 'realignment' to "better reflect" their upcoming line-up of work, which apparently is DLC. Raven also made PC Jedi Academy.
