Is a KOTOR MMO set for a release sometime in 2010? There heave been lots of rumors as to whether we'll be seeing a KOTOR MMO at all over the past year or so. Well, Destructoid.com is reporting the following:
"Speaking to investors at a recent stock conference, EA CEO John Riccitello let slip mention of the upcoming MMO that they might be co-publishing with LucasArts.
"It's giving us strong new entries in online. For example, we're funding the MMO in Austin, which is helping us a lot."
As TotalVideoGames points out, the only EA-owned studio in that area is BioWare?s MMORPG satellite studio. BioWare is seen as the most likely candidate to be developing the game. Coincidence? Maybe, but it still seems somewhat likely. At least EA shouldn?t feel the need to include any ridiculously lame copy protection, since it?s an MMO."
Interesting...most interesting. More as we hear it, but sonsideer a rumor until we hear something official!
