OP  11/01/12 4:14:00 PM#1

George Lucas has sold the Lucas empire to Disney for the sum of $4.05 billion and we've got some thoughts to share on the subject, including what it could mean for MMO fans and SWTOR going forward.

From reading reactions around the internets, it seems that most people are reacting fairly well to this news. Honestly, when it comes to Star Wars, George Lucas essentially retired (with regards to Star Wars) after the original trilogy. Heck, maybe even after the first film! Aside from the prequel trilogy, George only directed A New Hope, after all. In the years since the original trilogy debuted, it seemed to me that George simply kept a tight grip on his IP and would occasionally tweak the films out of, I don’t know, perhaps boredom, but often to fans’ displeasure. George eventually got the idea that he was ready to direct the prequel trilogy and we all know how that turned out.

I wouldn't be expecting any new Star Wars MMO's anytime soon.

They still think they can fix SWTOR.

( Note to self-Don't say anything bad about Drizzt.)

An acerbic sense of humor is NOT allowed here.

There will be a new Star Wars MMO eventually, it's inevitable. I'm betting SW:TOR will be an enormous success as it relaunches F2P,  but with a new trilogy, new characters, new events in the world, a new MMO is going to happen eventually. It won't be in the next year or two but maybe within 4 or 5 we will have a title and relative release date. I'm looking forward to a revitalized Star Wars franchise. Despite all the jokes about the Disney acquisition, they've handled the Marvel movies spectacularly, Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Chronicles of Narnia, they are all very original and extremely well done. Disney's NOT stupid, and I would be shocked beyond belief if they did anything to alter the essence of Star Wars at all.

Might want to reconsider some of that as according to Disney, to quote: “We’re likely to focus more on social and mobile than we are on console,” said Disney CEO Robert Iger during a conference call. ”We’ll look opportunistically at console, most likely in licensing rather than publishing, but we think that given the nature of these characters and how well known they are, and the storytelling, that they lend themselves quite nicely, as they’ve already demonstrated to the other platform."

Life Liberty and the Pursuit of those that would threaten It

Does anyone know if Lucus retained the Law Firm he had with Lucusarts or not that would speak volumes.

People might as well start bitching now about the next trilogy not being like the Thrawn Trilogy and get it over with.  I foresee much nerd rage. 

If a planned release for episode VII is 2015 then I wouldn't expect another SW MMO until around 2020 at the soonest.  The MMO market will be a whole other animal by then so who knows what it'll be like.  I'm guessing with the new wave of more twitch-centric MMOs it will be in line with that.  Don't expect it to be anything like SWG or SWTOR.  It will be healthier if people just accept the fact SWG or anything like it will never be back...at least not with the SW IP.

 Yeah, they are a pretty poor preformer for such a big name company. Suprised Apple hasn't gobbled them up yet. ;)

I get the feeling Disney's idea to boost TOR's revenues will be to turn it into a cartoonish clone wars game.

I seriously doubt Disney will produce a Star Wars-based MMORPG for several years if ever.

Hopefully Disney has a clue and will rerelease the original trilogy in a remastered, yet completely unaltered, state on DVD and BluRay.

No Special Editions, I want to see those classic films as they originally appeared in the theatre.

as mentioned it can at least not get much worse... And Marvel seems to do pretty well under the rule of the big mouse.

 

Buuuuuut for ToR i think this will equal jack... ToR is EA's deal and the only time they will have to deal with the new owner is whenm the licens is up for renewal.

Tumbling down the rabbit hole?

If they create a new MMO set during ep VII to IX and beyond then players can have jedi presumable trained by Luke and his own pupils. Sith too, it is bound to show up plus surviving characters from the films can make an appearance, multiplayer star-ship combat too. Basically SWG but with an explainable rational for large Jedi numbers in a post-Vader era.

They (Disney) are saying they won't make/publish their own console games, but they will license other people to do so.

Which is what both SWG and SWTOR were/are: Made under license.
