Kuju confirms LucasArts split

Kuju has confirmed to <i>GamesIndustry.biz</i> that it has severed its publishing deal with LucasArts for upcoming PSP title Traxion.

Kuju has confirmed to GamesIndustry.biz that it has severed its publishing deal with LucasArts for upcoming PSP title Traxion.

The title was revealed at E3 last year, and won praise from the consumer press for its ability to incorporate MP3's stored on the PSP memory stick into gameplay.

"Kuju can confirm that we have agreed to sever the development relationship with LucasArts in respect of the Traxion game shown at E3 last year," said Ed Daly, studio head of Kuju Brighton.

Despite the two companies ending their business relationship, Kuju Brighton is confident that the technology behind Traxion will be put to use on future releases.

"For reasons of confidentiality we can make no specific comment about the termination of the relationship. However we can say that Kuju Brighton is committed to continue developing innovative lifestyle and music-based games, and we hope to be able to make a more specific announcement about the future of games based on our award-winning music analysis technology in the near future," he added.

Last June Kuju took on new staff in preparation of the full-scale production of Traxion, as well as the development of two new titles in the developer's portfolio.
