Raven Releases The Source Code For Jedi Knight II and III

Missed this at the end of last week, but it's worth noting. In response to the closure of LucasArts by Disney last week, Raven Software has finally released the source code for the singlepayer components to Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Knight III: Jedi Academy.

“Raven is sad to hear about the closing of LucasArts today, we respected them and enjoyed working with them over the years,” said the studio, in a statement sent 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."

There's no official support as yet, but that won't stop knowledgeable programmers getting in on the action. The links are below:

Enjoy!
