A disturbance in the Force

Bioware has announced that the super secret space-based MMORPG they've been working on is indeed another Star Wars MMORPG, as was assumed when it was first announced. Not much information has been released as of yet, but this is something I will be watching with keen interest. Hopes and dreams of a few million SWG vets ride on this game, and Bioware could easily make billions by creating a game similar to SWG, set in the KOTOR time period, and fixing and adding in the themes that Sony failed to create.

That said, the game will most likely be a WOW or Guild Wars setup, with factions you are stuck in once you join and Jedi as a starting class (if KOTOR is any guideline, three types of Jedi as starting classes). This bodes ill for the franchise, and it will be difficult to pull off this game.

Bioware, the world is watching. Please listen to the players and do right by them. Don't make SW: The Old Republic the bastard child of Sony.

Good luck, and May the Force be with you.
