After a lot of speculation, rumors and prayers – EA and BioWare are indeed developing an MMO with Lucas Arts based in the time frame of the Knights of the Old Republic game. I for one couldn’t be happier with the announcement! I’m a fan of BioWare and I’m a fan of Star Wars. KOTOR was a great game and I think they could really pull off something amazing.
In my wildest dreams I would have been working on this project, but alas it wasn’t meant to be. I’m not holding it against them though and I really am highly anticipating this title. I hope that it’s a brave game that breaks the DIKU mold that WoW has solidified, but I’m not going to hold my breath. I’ll be insanely happy to just be able to run around the Star Wars Universe once again with my friends. I won’t even get pissed off at all the jedi around because, well, in this time frame a server full of jedi would actually make sense.
