Rumor on the Future of Star Wars: The old Republic

What could happen in the future of SWTOR? That’s probably a question that many fans of the games speculates. Here is a rumor that is worth checking out. (PC, Star Wars:The Old Republic)

Hopefully it becomes a PLAYSTATION exclusive. XoXoXo

not a chance in hell

Lol @ the disagree, anyone who has spent a good amount of time playing will know it's not suitable for consoles. The amount of abilities for all the classes alone would make it impossible to play using a controller. You then have the fact the game engine is a piece of garbage that would be an absolute nightmare to port over.

I play PC mostly but I do know that the ps4 is compatible or is going to be compatible with keyboard n mouse so the controller won't be an issue. The game was doomed as soon as it went f2p anyway.

There are already MMOs on consoles such as Final Fantasy and DC and they also have lots of character abilities.

And they cope no problem.

I play SW:TOR with my DualShock 4 using Xpadder button mappings.

Jesus, I am a PS4 owner, but quit the yacking about turning everything to a playstation exclusive, and the same goes to xbox...

Lets all just be civilised and try to bring as much games to the console universe.

yeah...nah

Why would you hope it would only be a PS exclusive? Dont you guys understand that multi-plats are better for everyone, more revenue for devs = more better quality games for all of us. This fanboyism is going to kill the very thing you love.

I just hope this comes out on ps4, i want to play SWTOR on consoles so badly :'(
Clown_Syndr0me  +   86d ago
I don't think it would work, although the Playstation does support keyboard and mouse.
I think they should release an official PS Keyboard &Mouse and then developers could take that into consideration and we could see more PC like games on consoles.
orakle44  +   86d ago
It would work out just fine. There are MMO's on consoles that do just fine. There is no reason that this wouldn't work too.
OtakuDome  +   86d ago
I doubt they're cancelling it, if anything it's going to be a console port.
aiBreeze  +   86d ago
This has to be a troll.. as a huge fan of SWTOR, this sounds just too good to be true. There is a fantastic game there, just ruined by a static world and a bad game engine. But for EA and Disney collaborating to reinvesting in the game, continuing the class storylines, creating a sequel and linking it to the new movies? Usually when something that's too good to be true, it usually is.

It's going to be a an expansion of sorts. Akin to a relaunch of the game with it being dubbed SWTOR 2. Seriously, no one wants this. The MMO is very mediocre AT BEST. I loved knights of the old republic 1 and 2 and they just continue to murder this beloved saga
aliengmr  +   86d ago
Yea, underneath the SW skin is the most basic of MMO's. Don't even get me started on the space portion of the game.
Novistador  +   86d ago
This game would be impossible to port to consoles. Ever wonder why World of Warcraft never made it to consoles? there are so many spells on the ui as is. There is almost no way that the entire spell list in SWTOR could be mapped out on a controller.
Ocsta  +   86d ago
Screw that. KOTOR 3! Give the fans what they actually want dammit!
liquidhalos  +   86d ago
That would be awesome. I loved the 2 kotor games. I can't remember how many times I played through. Fingers crossed we get kotor 3 one day
Drakir  +   86d ago
If they take the codename "SWTOR II" to a new direction, more towards the spectacular Mass Effect Series, with both the graphics looking a like, then by all means.

Now if you do those poor delivered stories (which I still play to this day, yet still poor), that the mere fact that is Star Wars is what keeps people coming back, then try going to the singleplayer, single story game.
palaeomerus  +   86d ago
I didn't think it was a good game and didn't enjoy playing it so I don't care. I'd rather have a single player Kotor game again.
Software_Lover  +   86d ago
This game would be terrible on consoles. TERRIBLE!!!
Perjoss  +   86d ago
I still play swtor sometimes, its a pretty cool game. I'd be very interested to see how they get it working well on consoles, the way it plays now I feel like controls wise this would not be an easy thing to do properly.
il-JumperMT  +   85d ago
I played this game at launch, and it was a great game until it changed to PAY TO WIN
kingdom18  +   85d ago
Would be cool if it came to the consoles, really loved playing it on my PC, but my PC has an older integrated Intel GPU and it just became a pain to play it. It should be able to play well, with FFXIV ARR you can switch between multiple hot bars for which would be perfect for this on a controller, but also don't both systems have or are going to have keyboard and mouse support?
