Serious WoW Competitor & Unafraid of SWTOR

Serious WoW Competitor & Unafraid of SWTOR -

According to a new interview with, Trion's Lars Buttler, Rift has been the "most competition that WoW has ever had".

The statement came during an interview about yesterday's announcement of the Red Door gaming portal that Trion is getting ready to launch.

Further, Buttler doesn't see the December launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic as a serious threat to Rift's place in the MMO space:

"So I expect many people will try it and even people who haven’t tried Rift will try Star Wars and then we’ll see where they end up in the long run. I’m actually extremely excited about what’s happening in our space. When we started five years ago, there was only WoW. Now there’s Rift as an absolute serious contender, with the most dynamic gameplay ever. Then there’s Star Wars, then there’s End of Nations coming. Then there’s Defiance coming, which was MMORPG’s MMO of E3, ahead of Star Wars. So we’re not afraid at all. We actually look forward to it with great excitement. It makes our point."
