    need to close the strikethrough tags :)

    Sounds like galaxies to me, i'm too leary to waste my money on something like that..but hey it's still in development for over a year, so maybe they'll put something thats worth playing.

    It seems unlikely that LucasArts would allow EA/BioWare to use the Star Wars franchise to create an MMO in competition with Galaxies, their own Star Wars MMO, even if it's set ~5000 years before the era of Galaxies.

    Either way, if it involves subscription fees then I'll be disinterested even before an official press release. :p

    You forget how much of a 'cash in on the franchise any way possible' whore George is, plus are there still people playing Galaxies? Anyway by the time anything would possibly come of this Galaxies must have ran itself dry by then.

    I was a long time player of SWG (star War Galaxies). I stuck with it for 3 years since it came out.
    For 18 months it was a really fun game to play. but what probley killed it was the jedi Profession - everyone wanted to be a jedi.
    there were 30 Professions when the game started, and now it has 9.

    Back on point, after the game started to suffer becouse of the changes that kept being put into the game to try and bring in lots of new players (a plan that only managed to make them loose more of the old players) the bioware rumor started up. I'd say that it has been a rumor for about 2 years now, and started as a rumor that bioware would take over the running of galaxies becouse of the mess that SOE had made of the game (I will never play another SOE game becouse of the mess they made of the game).
    It later changed to them making a new mmo based on kotor, and I keep hearing this rumor pop up every now and then. So I would not read too much into it.

    KOTOR3 > KOTOR-MMO tbh.
    Are they just pushing off the single player mode? :(

    Yeah, I'd much rather see the next Kotor than an MMO, IMHO. Loved the first two.

    Like others I would be really (pleasantly) surprised if this was true. However:
    Quoted for truth

    I'm apprehensive about this. I'm unsure if they've really been given permission to compete against, and probably force out of the market, Star Wars: Galaxies.
