Companies have been using Lisp to accelerate game development with a scripting language in AA game.

Making a game is a hard problem.

See Lisp on Playstation 2: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_Oriented_Assembly_Lisp

But nobody big enough uses Lisp to script games anymore.

List didn't fall out of practical use because it's bad, it fell out of practical use because its successors were better.

Dont Naughty Dog still use some type of lisp for their scripting?
