- OTHER COMPANIES AT E3 2008 -
- IN, BUT NOT FOR LONG -
These companies are still on for E3 2008, but have made individual statements that this will be their last appearance at E3, and will not be returning in the immediate future.
LucasArts: In what was probably the most shocking planned departure from the ESA (and subsequently E3), LucasArts has said they still plan on attending E3 this year, but will not be announcing any new titles, and will probably focus on their next big release: The Force Unleashed.
While Crave Entertainment is hardly a staple of E3, they have always had several casual titles to showcase in the past including World Championship Poker. An official statement from their president, Michael Maas, reveals their decision not to go forward with the ESA is more of a practical one because of their impending acquisition.
Most well-known for their Race Driver series, this year Codemasters has plenty of upcoming titles they may showcase at their last E3 including Damnation, a vertical shooter based on what looks to be an alternate U.S. history.
