So... What if.. Disney gave YOU the decision to choose the developer of the next Star Wars MMORP...who would you choose?

Consider your options and post what studio your choice would be... or even what key talents in the gaming industry :)

 

It's fun to dream...


Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

Electronic Arts. Mainly because they have a really great track record with mmorpgs. :D

Who did wrong? The advertiser hired to sell the game or the consumer who put faith in advertising?

I would have to say either keep it in house since they also got the gaming section of LA or at a out side SOE (.

Do not thing the others (EA, Funcom, Bizzard) could make the game fun to play.  Blizzard might be able to do it if SOE or in house production are rejected.

If they dropped it in my lap, I'd say, "These things don't make money, don't make an MMORPG out of it."

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

If they had Goofy do it then it would never meet its release date. Mickey is really the only one responisble enough to complete a project of this calibur. Everyone knows Donald has anger issues so he would create a hostile environment in the office.

Probabaly trion, because they've built a great game with a low budget and continue to provide a great service. I can only image what they would do with a 200 million budget.

Not going to happen.  Two studios have already attempted making a SW MMO.  Neither did well.

Sadly, I think TOR will be the last attempt made (at least for the next ten years).

Might as well discuss a different IP.

but their nasty  tentacles with dollar signs mold the game the way they want to be, which make them a developer corrupter, or in other words, they are in indirect form of developer.

While I see your point, at least you can concede that Goofy would still be an improvement from what we've had.

CCP ~ with their sandbox chops and that sexy WoD engine of theirs... where do I send money?

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.

You two are both wrong. Only Scrooge McDuck would be the right person. At least it will be a huge financial success.

Id give it back  to Bioware.  Id also give them unlimited budget, unlimited time and stay out of their way.
