So, as of December 2011 Star Wars Galaxies will become a blue glowy Force ghost
What piques my interest is the line about “SOE and LucasArts have mutually agreed that the end of 2011 is the appropriate time to end the game” It’s pretty clear that SW:G is having its licence pulled to clear the decks for SW:ToR. Does this mean that 15th December is a planned live date for The Old Republic? Does it set an earliest possible release date for ToR (i.e. EA can’t or won’t go live while SW:G is still active)? Or is there going to be an overlap period when both games are live… but if they’re willing to tolerate that, why not extend Galaxies’ licence and pull in some extra dough?
