they just need a new 10 year licence and 100,000,000$ and the world would finally get the Star Wars MMO it deserves

The only possibility I see remotely happening is SOE re-introducing the game as it was and changing a few things: number of characters per account would have to be increased and/or it woulld have to be F2P.

I loved SWG - the only true MMO in my gaming life :)

No. For that we have the fan project.

I want nothing less than Star Wars Galaxies "Next" from SOE, like they are doing Everquest Next.

I want Star Wars in their amazing Forgelight engine, not a half finished Alpha engine like SWTOR has

I want a Star Wars MMO which looks like Star Wars, not like a cartoon sci fi version of WoW

 

Help us Disney, you are our last hope, go talk to SOE

I'm aware of the fan project but it's only good if you have the original discs so that doesn't bode well for new players.

The new upcoming movie (if done well and I do believe with J.J. Abrans at the helm it will) will spawn a re-interest in the franchise which MAY help but that's a big IF.

Complex games like SWG are unfortunately being swept aside in favor of shallow games designed now for mobile apps - iPad...etc. 

Currently playing as Pete Puma on Excalibur. FF ARR - The best MMO I've played since SWG!

Disney just needs to act and give SOE a license to the IP.

Every SWG hater continues to say that TOR is not supposed to be SWG2, then there would be no competition between these two titles anyway!

If they did that SWTOR would die. Any alongside comparison to another SW MMO would quickly reveal the terrible and legion flaws of SWTOR, even to the drones.

Only by AAA companies...

Us gamers have got lucky and kickstarter is now available for devs to make games they want to make not waht the AAA publisher wants them to make.

I expect to see a lot more complex games popping up over the next few years.. Soon AAA companies will realise we dont all want dumbed down versions of last years games..

 

Im am pretty sure the furture of gaming will be a lot better than the last few years.

i was under the impression that Disney bought star wars a year or two ago, am i wrong or is there some reason to think of SWG now ?

F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used to

I wouldn't expect Disney to get into the sandbox MMO market anytime soon, unless of course the industry as a whole shifts that direction.  Disney is all about accessibility though, so any game they make will likely be targeted towards a youth / teen market, where SWG was always a bit more "grown up", even if only by accident.

A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

I recently read a research paper which conluded that holding ones breath actually helps generate a desired outcome. So, if all of the SWG "vets" would simultaneously hold their breath until this happens, I'm sure you'll have the game you seek in no time.

 

Give it a shot, please.

NGE, LOTRO, STO, KOTOR, Lego Star Wars > NGE 2 (SWTOR). SWG>ALL. Above hopefully subject to change.

As far as Disney are concerned they said that they are just focussing on mobile devices, but will let other companies create games with their IP for console / PC, so it will be whatever other companies want to do.

here is a better idea, if you dont like the fact that people want a game they loved back, then dont go into threads about it and read it. this way we dont have to listen yo your stupidity and you dont have to listen to us haveing our hopes no matter how small.

F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used to

It will be whatever other companies want to do with Disney looking over their shoulder and telling them what not to do.  I don't know if you are aware of this, but Disney is notorious for being ridiculously strict with their IP licensing. 

I'd love to be wrong on this one, but if anything, having Disney own Star Wars is probably a negative for the gaming market, especially MMOs.  Thought it is hard to imagine someone screwing up as hard as Bioware did with TOR.  What we should all pray for is a quick sunset of TOR so someone else has a shot in the next 5+ years.

Smed is our only hope, with EQ Next. If that turns out to be the "biggest Sandbox MMO" as he says and turns into the #1 MMO, then we should see many sandbox games coming out left right and center

Well it depends on if they buy the line coming out of Bioware these days (2nd largest Western MMO according to Ohlen), or at least think that the public buys that. It would be a mistake for them to put money into SWTOR, I could see them just letting it run though.

How does Camelot Unchained have anything to do with Star Wars? Also, isn't that game due out in 2015?

You are witnessing the power of the martyr. Feel free to beat your head against this wall if you want, but the powerful love of a greater former over a stupid replacement is significant.

I am resting a lot of hope into EQ Next. I really hope it turns out well.
