Editor’s Note 2- We’ve gotten several emails asking about the validity of this news. The only rumors we post here at Primotech will explicitly be stated as such.

SOE and NGE-Star Wars Galalaxies:
Raph Koster: "It's like dumping the girlfriend who has always been patient and loving to chase after the supermodel who probably won't love you back."

     Not to sound like a hater but I'm guessing if Bioware was ready to let the information out they would announce it publically not just give it only to a 2 bit website almost no ones ever heard of.

     IMHO fake like a seven dollar bill.

    I'm sure Bioware has good reasons for not announcing anything specific yet, I would guess we can expect to hear something more concrete in Q1.

    Again - OLD NEWS.  That press release was from 10/30/07.  This could be anything, and currently BioWare lists that project separately from the MMO.

    "unofficially confirmed" is an oxymoron

    IF  they announce its a star wars themed project, it will have to wait until LA take the license from SOE.

    which is why they probably haven't announced anything yet, given that its been in development since late04/early05

    but i heard rumors like 2 years ago that they were making kotor3 and then making the mmo based after that games story in the same time line, or it will be a lame tie into the live action star wars show which i highly doubt.

    QFE

    These constant "unofficial confirmations" are tedious and silly.

    CH, Jedi, Commando, Smuggler, BH, Scout, Doctor, Chef, BE...yeah, lots of SWG time invested.

    It depends on how long the exclusivity of the license was written to be.  A couple LEC employees made comments a bit over a year ago that the Star Wars IP was big enough for more then one MMO.  There is no way LEC would have signed a licensing agreement that gave exclusive rights to the IP to an outside company in perpetuity.

    If the Bioware MMO does turn out to be Star Wars, the first major mistake LEC has made with it is not pulling the license from SOE and shutting down SWG.  SWG's extremely poor reputation is going to make many people gunshy about buying another Star Wars MMO.  Either they are clueless about SWG's reputation, or they think Bioware's reputation will make it a non-factor.

    Unofficially confirmed is retard speak for  - TRUTH !  ! ! ! ! !!

    What would you do in the place of  LA  working with an scruffy company like $OE who 80 % of possible MMO customers  hates or at least  not  trust  or renew partnership with a company who always had success with your IP licence.

    It don't take a rocket scientist to figure out what is  the right thing to do .   Disappointing it took them that long at LA , thought the guys were smarter , but seems they had  tolearn the feel of beeing unsuccessful  first with the bitter pill of post-CU SWG.
