GameSpot is reporting a disturbance in the Force at Sony Online Entertainment, and rumors have surfaced that the
troubled Star Wars
franchise may soon have a new home. Speculation stems from a recent exodus of talent at SOE's Austin
office, including the game's chief creative officer Raph Koster. Coincidentally, new neighbor
employs many SOE veterans, and is staffing up for a sci-fi MMO.
A LucasArts rep denies any plans to phase
out the current Galaxies
, but did confirm they have been approached by other companies to develop a second
Star Wars online property. How cool would a KOTOR
-based MMO be?
