Subsequent titles published or developed in-house include ''Fracture'', ''{{Mercenaries}}: Playground of Destruction'' (note that its sequel, ''Mercenaries 2: World in Flames'' had its publishing rights given to ElectronicArts by developer Pandemic) and ''Star Wars: VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed''. However, the sequel, ''The Force Unleashed II'' would prove to be the last in-house game developed by LucasArts; soon afterward, in the summer of 2008, the studio was disbanded, with [=LucasArts=] announcing that it would become largely a title publisher. Their financial state also led to the cancellation of numerous in-development titles, and indirectly caused ''Battlefront III'' developer Creator/FreeRadical to go under due to withholding payments and cancellation fees. The last several years of the company were marred by poor sales, layoffs, and multiple changes of leadership. Internal development had all but ceased, though they still dedicated resources to keeping existing [=IPs=] aflost, such as {{Updated Rerelease}}s of the first two ''Monkey Island'' games, the first digital releases of some of their out-of-print catalog titles, and a collaboration with Creator/TelltaleGames to created an episodic sequel to the IP.
