LucasArts is currently developing Star Wars 1313, a gritty third-person shooter that is meant to offer a new perspective on the Star Wars universe geared more towards older audiences.
It is unclear what the Disney acquisition will mean for Star Wars 1313 and LucasArts as a studio, though it appears that there will be no changes in the immediate future.
"For the time being, all projects are business as usual," a LucasArts representative told Polygon. "We are excited about all the possibilities that Disney brings."
LucasArts is best known for its classic point-and-click adventure games such as Grim Fandango and the Monkey Island series, which are now also owned by Disney.
However according to Disney CEO Robert Iger, audiences should not expect to see those classic games return any time soon, at least in their original formats.
Speaking to Polygon about how Disney plans to use the franchises acquired from today's deal in future games, Iger said: "We're likely to focus more on social and mobile than we are on console.
"We'll look opportunistically at console - most likely in licensing rather than publishing - but we think that given the nature of these characters and how well known they are, and the storytelling... they lend themselves quite nicely - as they've already demonstrated - to the other platforms."
Even before Disney purchased Lucasfilm, the company's franchises were no stranger to being licensed to other developers.
Star Wars: The Old Republic, LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Indiana Jones and Tales of Monkey Island were all developed by studios outside of LucasArts.
If all remains unchanged at LucasArts, Star Wars 1313 is slated to release in 2013 for unspecified platforms.
Disney also revealed today (October 30) that it is beginning work on the movie Star Wars Episode 7 for a 2015 release.
