BioWare's goals for its soon-to-launch Star Wars: The Old Republic are anything if not ambitious; the game will last players "decades," the studio is optimistically declared.
It should be and should be 100% ready at launch. They have had enough time to get it right. But would rather it right than wrong!
This is great! I love long term love support! If it were on console we would announce part 2 next year..
He was talking about development!
Any game could last decades with monthly fees that support constant content/graphical updates.
if its up that long. With costs in excess of 100 million it could potentially be the biggest flop in history
Maybe 10 years, unlikely to be more than that.
I saw their Comic-Con Conference and their stance on the "decades" part wasn't completely serious. Of course, any MMO dev would truly like their game to last that long, but I found there's to be in more of a light-hearted yet optimistic stance. It's not like they were 'declaring' it or something like that.
Floptastic! I really don't see many people playing this game more than a few months, including the legions of Star Wars fans. Many were let down by the new Episodes and everything Star Wars lately has been garbage.
Many people are let down by a number of things, so not sure what's suprising about the new Episodes being included. Episode 1-6 are all fresh on RT, and not all Star Wars recently released has been garbage. Clone Wars TV series gets a commendable amount of respect and attention. Lucasarts has certainly let fans down compared to last gen. And certain SW books/comics have been more than impressive.
They should be so lucky.
i think starwars will have big sales at begining, but not so many people will stick with it for a long time.
