For all this time when SWG was online it got nothign but abuse on daily basis. It was one of the most hated MMOS on these forums second to WOW. And now when it is gone for good people can not stop praising it. I read how SWG even after NG was still oen of the best MMO, same people who discouraged everyone else from playing it now want it back.

I just don't get it.

 Highly possible , SW:Tor is done for by 2014.   Their biggest mistake was shutting down SWG , so I'm pretty sure they had a plan B which is SWG2.

I wouldn't count on it. Especially with disney taking over the SW universe. If I was a betting man, I'd say that they will come out with their own MMO but not for a long while.

SWG was and still is one of the best true mmorpgs out there.  I dont get why so many whine about not having a good mmo with lots of content, but attack a game that gave you that and more :/

Nothing compares to the features and abilities you could do in that game.

People that whined about the nge/cu all went to play other mmo's that were exactly like the nge lol. And still whined on the forums.But those people were ok with a weaker game? Even after the nge SWG was still one hell of a game. I played from day one, and it progressed rather nicely. Some good expansions and so much to do. I was never bored or waited around for content like all these newer games.  Never forced into pvp for end game content. Didnt have to run dailies every day for content. Just the freedom to do what i wanted to do when i wanted to do it. Great feeling i havent felt from any new mmo :(

SWG2 made exactly like the first one, fixing the bugs, new graphics, better combat = win. And take away the ability to be jedi starting out. I liked the old way of earning it and always hidding from people so you dont get seen and put on the BH terminal.

It got a lot of hate because it had some really awful game mechanics and a bad launch. Like, the Jedi system.

But it was out long before WoW. It only ever got WoW levels of hate after the NGE.

You don't really know what you have until it's gone, I guess.

People that want SWG back are not exactly dreaming of the NGE version.

The old SWG is gone; the best we can hope for is an updated game based of the pre-cu design, with the content added during the years.

I'd say you're right. There has to be a dev studio out there willing to spend the next 5-7 years making a game that 300k people will buy and enjoy.

 

Has to be.

I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

CCP did.

But I see your point. We are better with todays game, where deleopers spent 5-7 years of making, give away for free and almost nobody will like.

With new movies coming out there is no reason there can't be an SWG2. There will be new planets, new people, new creatures. It will be crazy and they are going to HAVE to do something to please the fans game wise. You will see either a SWG2, a Battle Front 3, or a Jedi Knight 4. Something will come with this new content and it wont just be a crappy "movie" game.

Didn't it take roughly 5 - 8 years for it to grow to that size?

 OK guys.. Don't have a stamping paddy about another SWG thread, I had a thought the other day [mod  edit] Someone said to me that a new Star wars Galaxies would not be possible due to the nature of the large open worlds and the modern game engines available now that could cope with such size and be a visual treat also. Well ... I'm Currently Playing the PS2 Beta and that  Forgelight engine is amazing, Can't say much(NDA).. Surely that engine  could easily handle all the planets in the SWG miniverse in stunning detail with all thoses wookies running round too.  Am I still clinging to a wish that it wil happen or just sandbox mad. Just bored of the F2p trash popping up al the time.  ..Ok im done... ready for the abuse...

 

:)

In short and i can not do better than this..

As far as I remember, LA and EA/Bioware put together a 10 year plan for SWTOR, it's already looking bleak after over a year and now Disney has their hands on LA and may dictate SWTOR's future. I'm not sure what to make of the server status when I look at them now, in the evening they show heavy and very heavy on many servers so I'm not sure if they lowered the server status threshold or there is an actual increase in active players, no one in my guild of 400 some odd members play SWTOR at all and we're a Star Wars centric guild that's been together since 2001.


Personally I don't see a SWG 2 ever happening, a sandbox game like pre-CU SWG doesn't fit in today's MMO genre anymore. If SOE was ever to develop SWG 2, it most likely will be a themepark-like game, Smedley even once said that he wished they launched SWG in the NGE format instead of revamping it.


I'm not buying anymore EA nor Biowar product in the future, I'm a big SimCity fan and there's a new SimCity game coming out in a few months, I'm not even getting that especially at $80. Cities XL is significantly better in some ways.

It took five years to develop, and another seven years to get into the black. We can be pretty sure that their plan wasn't to hang around at the brink of bankruptcy for years before becoming profitable.

No developer is going to purposely follow CCP's path. CCP didn't purposely follow the path they did. It just happened to work out for them because they were really tenacious.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

How does a second failed Star Wars MMO make it likely that they'll build a third MMO? SWG was profitable, but had mediocre success compared to the games that released both before and after it released. The single player games made a ton more money. The single player games targeted at children, specifically.

There's more incentive to build Star Wars:101, similar to Wizard 101 or Pirates 101 than there is to build an SWG2. Their games targeting children do better overall, and MMOs targeting children as the primary audience are second only to WoW in terms of players and revenue.

SWG2 just isn't going to happen. The closest anyone is going to get is a game that has the mechanics of SWG, without the Star Wars IP.

There are both haters and fanbois that post.

The unwanted NGE version of SWG was what was drove the playerbase away. There were some nice additions to SWG post-NGE, but the core of the game was still rotten with the NGE changes.  I think many praise SWG for some of the very innovative systems it had and what it once was, not so much the SWG post-NGE version. While I loved SWG pre-NGE, I didn't much care for what it had become and the loss of a once wonderful community (Intrepid for me) was the final deal breaker.
