    Why would anyone ever give the least bit of credence to a single word this man ever says any more?

    Particularly any former SWG player?

    Did EA not acquire the rights to all future Star Wars games? Sony can't make another Star Wars game then, can they? Unless they settled a deal before Disney bought the IP

    The company is shutting down seven games and they're already talking about the next slew of games. Maybe it's time to slow down on development and think really hard on why seven games failed.

    Four games, not sure why I said seven.

    Yep, Blizzard has seemingly lost it's way.  They let all the dreamers go and now are run by the penny pinchers.

    This is great news if it is true.

    Read much?  The quote by Smedley specifically says "a new IP".   That says it won't be Star Wars specific.

    If people would bother to read the AMA, Smed specifically states it's a new IP.  So no SWG 2.  It's most likely a zombie mmo in the fashion of SWG.

    I don't know what it is, but an original IP is the best bet.  If SWG would have been an original IP, yeah it may have never been made to begin with, but you don't have to deal with the IP's owner having control over what you do, or jacking up your IP fees to where you have to close a game down.

     

    I am not a huge fan of mmos that pay for a IP anymore, it just seems to be an added problem.  MMOs have a hard enough time being good imo, let alone interference from the owner of the IP.

     

    I would not spend the amount of money these companies do on a mmo, just to have it's future in the hands of the IP's owner.  If you made a popular game, and the IP comes up for renewal, they will probably rape you on the rate hike, and likely damage the future outlook for development imo.

     

     

    Yeah, it is cool to play something you are familiar with, but as a company, I wouldn't do it, unless you had some open ended deal, with a IP fee that cannot change much, and final say.

    We will see. I no longer trust any of these developers. I've almost left behind the genre completely. I'm sick to death of the same game being developed with a few small gimmicks that the developers love to call "next gen" when they don't seem to know what next gen means and with different graphics.

    Certainly hope not.  We DON'T need another zombie game ever!  A zombie game would never entice past SWG players, just completely NOT their thing.

    Smedley wouldn't be so stupid to go with another expensive-as-hell license. It's probably the reason they had to turn SWG more like WoW - to get enough money to pay for the fucking license.

    EQ1 is probably making less money than SWG did before they dropped the NGE, but that game is still going strong. Wonder why?

    Amen.

    After digging around, I think SOE are looking at The Repopulation MMO. People have been saying its like SWG in many ways, they don't have a publisher yet and Smedley says that the information is already out there - which all makes sense.

    So could SOE be about to publish The Repopulation?

    No. One of the Repopulation owners/developers has already said that's not the case. Check the official Repop forums where this was directly addressed.

    Well the new Star Wars movies are going to come out in a few years so they're probably planning to launch a new star wars MMO paralell to that
  • wolfmannwolfmann TerraakPosts: 1,159Member

    Right...

    And what we'll come "home" to is a SWG NGE type of game..

     

    You've been trolled by Smedley.

    fuck this guy!!

     So admitting you were wrong and changing is bad? Sure as hell beats developers that keep doing the same thing over and over again as if they are not capable of learning and acting as if their original design was perfect. I am looking at you Firor.

    You people do realize that it was not SOE alone that made a mess of SWG - Lucasarts were the ones calling the shots on that one, folks.

    Despite the many changes SWG it remains one of the most unique MMORPGs out there , that had many unique and tons of options and catered to more than just combat "kill,kill!" many of SWG's features remain unique to this day . People hated the NGE, everyone loved the Pre-Cu but Pre-Cu had virtually had next to no content, player driven content is fun but all the additions SWG had when it closed made it shine to it 90% potential if the Pre-CU profession skilltrees of old were combined with the end of SWG's lifespan full of content... there would have been happy players abound.

    While I agree 100% it seems suspicious that SOE would trademark H1Z1 for online gaming/rpg platform then shortly after make this announcement.  Honestly,I am totally burnt out on the whole zombie fad.
