Question Future PC Games,Will LucasArts Support...?

With the upcoming new consoles come in the near future ie: Xbox360,PS3 and so on will PC gamers be left out of LucasArts games.One example that leave me to believe this is true is the future release of the next "Indiana Jones Adventure" game.Now I know there are Star Wars MMO game and RTS game from LA but I would also like to play future Adventures,Action and so on on my PC.Will they support PC gamers with future titles.Does anyone here or any from LucasArts answer this burning question....

Why would LucasArts not support PC games ? Do not forget those games are developed on this platform, and not natively on consoles...

Yeah, they will probably continue to support Microsoft. That means only Windows and Xbox 360 games. Maybe they have some kind of agreement, or something?

They will do as stratergy games can only be played (properly) on a pc and they make a stratergy game every few years.

Yeah, a lot of companys like LucasArts seem to have a certain pattern in game releases... its starting to become obvious with each series/genre they release.

But we have to admit that creating new genres or series isn't really easy...

Well, they aren't creating any new genres. Its either FPS/RPG/RTS...

And for a new series, all you need is a story.

Except that have deals with sony for Galaxies. Therefore Sony consoles will be covered.

No, I'm just saying because Galaxies is published by Sony through LA (or something like that) that they have release contracts and such. Therefore there won't be some MS game lock.

Oh ok. Well, I know Battlefront was on the PS2, Xbox and PC. Most likley some games will be on the PS3, Rev, but I think most of them will be on the PC and XBox 360 platforms.

Release games on PC is (almost) an obviousness... Just read my first post on this thread...

LucasArts will always make PC games. The real question is, will LucasArts realise the portential of the Revolution controller and pounce at the chance at making unique Revolution games?

Now that everyone had there say here is proof that LucasArt does not support PC game.Under the paragraph "BREAK OUT THE HAT AND WHIP" it states "next generation in console technology" and no mention of PC.

That is a surprise. Though it's interesting to note that GL himself has some interest in videogames, and the current leaders of the videogames market are console manufacturers and those who support them.
