Layoffs at LucasArts?

lego_indiana_jones Though LucasArts has yet to confirm this, multiple sources are indicating that the company has in fact laid-off approximately 50-100 of its employees, including their vice president of Production Development, Peter Hirschmann.

If it is true it could be because the company believes it can make more money by licensing rights to Star Wars and Indiana Jones to third-party developers versus handling everything in-house.
