While doing a little research on Nancy Macintyre, the Lucas Arts director who had executive responsibility for the NGE in 2005, I found this interesting quiote
In a 2006 interview with Next Generation's Colin Campbell, LucasArts VP Nancy MacIntyre mapped out her company's plans to continue delivering Star Wars to the market.
"Our fans want a logical progression of the Star Wars story line, so we are committed to only two Star Wars experiences a year," says MacIntyre. We've also got Star Wars franchises like Knights of the Old Republic ... that we will not leave behind. It's very important to us that we grow those franchises."
"We typically work on these games about eighteen months out. We really treat these games like they are a theatrical release from the perspective of mapping everything out. We know that we need to be out there talking early and often and so you will see us handling the basic things like [fan] websites, but we'll also do web-docs and developer diaries and behind the scenes and all the kinds of information that these core fans really want to know."
We know that Bioware (the original poublished of KOTOR) and LA announced in late 2007 that they have been involved in a joint interactive online project for two years already.
Hmmm, eighteen months from November 2006 - the time of the interview - would take us to May 2008...?
Well, it's only speculation. And, thank god, because Ms. Macintyre has left LA and gone to Leapfrog, her fingerprints and their toxic epithelials won't be over the new LA/Bioware MMORPG.
