From the article on Kotaku:

"Raven is sad to hear about the closing of LucasArts today, we respected them and enjoyed working with them over the years,” said the studio in a statement sent to Kotaku Australia. “We wish the best for all the talented people who were let go and hope they find good work in studios in the industry.

“We loved and appreciated the experience of getting to make Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy for LucasArts. As a gift to the persistently loyal fanbase for our Jedi games and in memory of LucasArts, we are releasing the source code for both games for people to enjoy and play with."

I cannot wait to see what comes of this. The modding community for JKA has already done a fantastic job at shaping that game's potential.

@a_cute_squirtle: Yeah, its all nonsense to me but I'm sure someone out there is salivating over this right now and planning something insanely cool.

That sounds like a really cool thing to do, although I don't see it getting much use outside whatever devoted community that game has.

sharing is fun!

Great news, Im sure there will be some amazing mods-but it pains me that we will never see a next-gen sequel to outcast and academy.
