Game Developer Magazine's Top 20 Publishers For 2008


October 1, 2008 Article Start Previous Page 5 of 21 Next
 

17. LucasArts

Year formed: 1982

Headquarters: San Francisco

Studio: San Francisco

Just as with last year, LucasArts' lineup this year relied heavily on LEGO-based titles, complemented by a multiplatform Thrillville sequel.

Both series were generally well-received, and this year they allowed the publisher to maintain a 74 percent review average (fifth in our study), in addition to a beefed-up lineup for the year.

Reputation and detailed survey scores were merely average, and a couple of readers had harsh words for the publisher regarding the marketing of upcoming title Fracture.
