What does this mean?  Is Bioware now going to make a possible Star Wars MMO?  Or will it just be single/multi-player for console/PC?  Only time will tell...

Doesn't have to be a Star Wars MMO, Could be any kind of MMO. Assuming its a MMO, of course.

 

To answer your question as to what it is; Its going to be kickass whatever it is.

Right but for the most part if LA is selling an IP it will most likely be Star Wars, I doubt it is Indiana Jones or somesuch :P  But the key thing is if it will be mmo or not.  but no doubt it will be good :)

I'm pretty sure it's Kotor, Bioware wouldn't need LEC to make anything other then a SW MMO.  LEC liked what Bioware did with Kotor, but they were just a little impatient on how long it took to make, but after the Kotor II fiasco, I'm pretty sure they have seen the error in their ways and are giving Bioware free reign....of course this is only my opinion.
