Game developers LucasArts and BioWare announced Tuesday they have joined forces to create a new, massively multiplayer online PC game. "Star Wars: The Old Republic" is a story-driven game based on the popular sci-fi world created by George Lucas. The two companies divulged a handful of details at a press event held at LucasArts' headquarters in San Francisco. No release date was given. However, the MMO partners did say that the game is set roughly 350 years after the time of "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic," a previously released game.
I think the writer was just clueless. The line "the "Star Wars" franchise will soon move into the world of massively multiplayer online PC games" right at the beginning of the article did make me laugh a bit.
"...the 'Star Wars' franchise will soon move into the world of massively multiplayer online PC games..."
What about the original Star Wars MMO, Star Wars Galaxies? It's a shame what happened to that game, great potential and interest at release then run into the ground by total incompetence on Sony's part from day one.
Did LucasArts forgot about their FIRST MMORPG or was this poor interpretation by the writer? It goes by the title of Star Wars: Galaxies. Owned by Sony. http://starwarsgalaxies.station.sony.com/players/index.vm
