Since Disney purchased Lucasarts, games in the process of development were cancelled and studios were shut down. So, why would Disney remove a very fun mobile Star Wars game almost a year after its launch and not informed the game’s creator about it?
Tiny Death Star was the Star Wars version of the successful Tiny Tower game both made by Ian Marsh at Nimblebit. The game’s creator, in a conversation with PocketGamer, said he was not informed about the removal of the game from Google Play and the Apple App Store. “My assumption is they don’t feel it is worth it to maintain the game any longer.”
A source told Pocket Gamer that Tiny Death Star and Star Wars Assault Team were removed indefinitely for Disney to concentrate on more important games such as Star Wars: Commander.
If you’ve downloaded both titles, they will continue to work, but people looking for the games unfortunately won’t find them in the app stores.
I’ve truly enjoyed playing the mobile title and will play it again. I’d like to know what Disney has to say about the removal of the game.
