That's according to a report on Kotaku this morning, who claim the new boss has already chopped a high profile sequel.

According to the website, Meegan has seen fit to cancel production of The Force Unleashed III before work even properly begins. Apparently, a huge number of staff who were expected to move onto the project from The Force Unleashed II will be shown the door once the project's completed.

Another unannounced title due next year has avoided the chop, but has been put "on hold" while Lucasarts restructures its management.

According to Kotaku's sources "morale and productivity are at all-time lows" since Meegan took over, with most Lucasarts developers only finding out about the cancellation of the PSP iteration of The Force Unleashed on the Internet.

The shake-up's likely to end up meaning Lucasart focus on smaller projects, rather than big-blockbusters, but naturally it's all concerning news for those involved. Even Traveller's Tales - who have been in charge of the LEGO inspired releases of popular Lucasarts IP - may be affected, as the publisher makes a push for internal development.

It's all hearsay for now, but there's obviously changes afoot at Lucasarts. We'll keep our ear to the ground for more.
