Raven Software has finally given in to fans’ demands and released the source code for 2001′s Jedi Outcast and 2003′s Jedi Academy  following the closure of LucasArts yesterday.

Modders have been after the code for years, but LucasArts refused to let it go. ”Raven is sad to hear about the closing of LucasArts today, we respected them and enjoyed working with them over the years,” the studio said to Kotaku Australia. “We wish the best for all the talented people who were let go and hope they find good work in studios in the industry.

“We loved and appreciated the experience of getting to make Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy for LucasArts. As a gift to the persistently loyal fanbase for our Jedi games and in memory of LucasArts, we are releasing the source code for both games for people to enjoy and play with.”

Yesterday Disney announced that it was shutting down LucasArts and cancelling all of its current projects. The source code for both games can be found here and here.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
