Not necessarily, there's been a few companies that their license has ran out but the spaces or content still remain.


Examples, please?


In EU a few Diesel items remain. This is probably because the old stuff was done with ThinkTank Solutions and the newer items were produced by VeeMee *shrugs*

Jersquall: Any new news on Home on PS4 yet?

Tempest_Fire: Due to a shifting landscape, PlayStation Home will cease publishing new content on November 12, 2014.

Here come the Negative comment over "EA"

 

trust me, even if there going to be a new Star Wars game published by EA. it will be always blind-hates.

 

By this thread. remember that LucasArts turns into- OKAY, this post and edit here turns a bit silly

He is no longer with EA.

 

He had a wonderful vision of expanding that complex to many of the venues you could see from the Poker rooms. Sadly money was probably something that stopped that given development isn't cheap and pay to play is certainly the driving force nowadays.

THQ has filed for bankruptcy, along with selling all their games and assets in real life.

Yet, their Home content remains.

So there's still hope.

Most of the companies who bought fractions of THQ have Home content of thier own aswell, except for the company who bought Saints Row. I can see the THQ stuff getting removed when they do another cleaning like they do every few years.

I for one am hoping the stuff does not get pulled, but as EA has discontinued services with Home, i can see it happening.


Battlefield 3 stuff is still on Home.

Yeah, I forgot about that, it must have just been EA Sports that they had a falling out with then.

Well, they didn't warn us recently about Diesel getting pulled. Later, it come to find out that the contract was up. Though, there was no warning of any kind beforehand.

My best advie is, if the company hasn't produced in a long time on Home, best buy what you can.

At least before it's gone.

Star Wars and the Empire Strikes Back are two movies I really enjoyed. After all "Get This Walking Carpet Out of My Way" and so many more expressions are really memorable. 

 

Having the Cantina in Home was quite an addition. It's really a shame they never updated it or added some additional content or mini-games. There were and are so many possibilities. 

 

Who knows when the license is due to expire and whether or not a renewal is in Home's future. We don't hear much from Heavy Water these days and I do believe they were trying to get additional Star Wars content in Home.

It would suck if Star Wars content got removed from Home.
But, right now, I'm more focused on EA/DICE breathing life into the corpse that was Star Wars Battlefront 3.
