"Quick explanation -
Last week, John Smedley sacked four of us at SoE using extremely unprofessional reasoning on his part. Basically he's looking to trim the staff down of those working on SWG now that KotORO is about to be announced soon.
We wouldn't of minded so much if he had just been honest about his reasons - but that isn't John Smedley.
So basically, this is my way of being unprofessional back at him. He'll never be able to discover which of the four of us snuck this out of the offices, so here it is John - your "careful timing" you are oh so precious about - ruined.
This is the project John Smedley has not been telling SWG players about. He's known for about a year now that Bioware is working on the Knights of the Old Republic MMO, and him and Lucasarts have been busy thinking up ways to squeeze the remaining SWG playerbase out of one final cash lump sum before everyone jumps ship - and this is it.
Star Wars Galaxies - City of the Skies. The 4th Expansion.
It's been in the works for the last 3-4 months, and basically is a mish-mash of material SoE has purchased from other Star Wars games with Bespin in it, to make the production process faster.
The ONLY part they are actually splashing out on is that they are really asking Billy Dee Williams and the guy who voices Kyle Katarn to do voices for it.
Smedley seems to think the idea of actually creating content from the era the game is set in, rather than more clone wars stuff is "original thinking".
I'm sure that'll give a good few of you a chuckle..."
