Speaking to MCV, LucasArts president Jim Ward has expressed his frustration in the ever-expanding budgets given to developers, and their willingness to let titles get delayed for indefinite amounts of time.
Ward warns that the current mentality -- that making great games takes "whatever time it takes and ... whatever money it takes" -- is bad business. "It's not okay in other entertainment businesses," he said. "In other businesses it's big trouble." Ward is calling for a major overhaul in publisher philosophy, one which LucasArts adopting, to curb development inflation.
