...but very plausable. I tried this game,as I have many many before it, and it really didn't hold my attention at all.  So, not much of a shocker to me, if this rumor is accurate.

    If this is true, it's kinda sad, especially seeing as sean left BW for this company.  Not sure what he'll do now..maybe go back to BW? who knows

    Help me Bioware, you're my only hope.

    Is ToR going to be good? Dude it's Bioware making a freaking star wars game, all signs point to awesome. -G4tv MMo report.

    From what I read it only released three months ago.  I recognize it from seeing advertisements here, but there are so many that it's not something I ever checked out.

    Personally, I love the game, although I recognize it definitely needs a lot more work.  Faxion was underfunded, underdeveloped (due to time constraints, not effort) and released to the public far too early, unfortunately. It has so much potential, but chances are won't last long enough to realize it.

    yea i liked sean when he was over at bioware and was a little worried when he left and they brought in stephen but hes done a great job.  but wouldn't suprise me if they gave him some postion for interecting with the sommunity around launch.  have to imagine they need to get a bunch of people to handle all tickets they will get and what not.

     

    this is assuming the rumor is true of course

     

    edit: oh just noticed your title whilan. booooooooooooooo ;P

    It's not a rumour it's true. I doubt Sean is going back to being a CM if he can help it. He really wants to be on the game development end.  He's pretty damn good at it too.
