Given Disney has the franchise with new films on the way I doubt they will go back to the Old Republic and instead move the games to tie in more with the new films, which is why some are suggesting that 1313 is on hold.

KOTOR 3 is what they should have made in the first place, it's what TORwants so very desperately to be. It's a shame, really, how horribly wrong it all went, but they obviously weren't prepared to actually run and support an MMO over the long term. As usual, EA put profits before long term planning, and I really don't think BioWare has much of a clue about what it's doing anymore. Also, it has one of the worst FTP models I've ever seen.

Development on TOR started before EA acquired BioWare, I think. It would have been interesting to see how the game might have turned out if it just remained a LucasArts/BioWare project.

Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic anticipation thread.

Can't see it being much different. It's been a long time since LucasArts was held in high regard. Pretty much since TPM came out it was re-purposed from a publisher of quality games (only about half of which were Lucasfilm licence titles) to a pretty cheep Star Wars merchandise machine.

Case in point: KOTOR. One of the few *good* Star Wars games made after the switch in focus and it was done by another studio.

As for what direction Disney may take, I'm pretty sure they'll take full advantage of the licence, so expect more TOR-era content to come. It may not be very *good* content and there's no telling in what form or medium it will be, but if there's profit in it, Disney will exploit it.

LucasArts has been shut down and 1313 is cancelled, Disney feel free to go screw yourselves.

Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic anticipation thread.

Can't say I'm surprised...can't say I'm even upset about it. The LucasArts I grew up with and loved has been dead and gone a long time now.

Sure, 1313 looked interesting, but then so did 'The Force Unleashed' before it came out. I honestly wasn't pinning any hopes on it.

Not sure how (if at all) this will affect ToR. Time will tell I suppose.

Doesn't EA have a 10 year License for TOR?

Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic anticipation thread.

I don't think that matters. It's only a matter of time before EA belongs to the Mouse. Since like 2004, rumors have cropped up every year about a EA/Disney joining. It's only a matter of time before those rumors become true.
