Still top secret with knobs on.
At this rate it will be out for 12 months before they announce it.

I wouldn't get too excited just yet any MMO linked to EA is on shaky ground right from the start as they have a nasty habit of taking these games to Beta and then canning them, so while Bioware have done some nice work in the past I have no more faith in Sony than EA as they at least do not abandon games.Tyfo wrote:The KotOR-MMO was confirmed today for a 09 release.
Thing is that Bioware are part of EA and as far as not trashing a very strong franchise well I will draw your attention to Ultima Online and the cancelled UO2 and Ultima X online games both in beta that would also have been strong sellers not to mention Wing Commander Online and Privateer online that never got off the ground.Tyfo wrote:Seeing as Bioware is running their own show, with a VERY strong franchise like KotOR, and in the flavor-of-the-month-genre MMO ... I doubt they'll trash it.
I have to agree, there are only so many MMO players out there, and the real seller for KoTOR is the star wars franchise. So the real question is: Can they make a Star Wars MMO to beat SWG, I am certain IF it comes out there will be a mad rush for it, from a lot of SWG-SOE jaded vets... but will it have the appeal to keep them, or will it be another WoW knock-off or a 'linear' RPG?Tyfo wrote:Even though Bioware is a part of EA, they've been running their own show ... and frankly, MMORPG's was a niche genre at best, before World of Warcraft.
