"If WoW proved that the MMO market could indeed be larger, could another game not do exactly the same thing? Last week Bioware and LucasArts announced Star Wars: The Old Republic, the highly anticipated "sequel" to the Knights of the Old Republic series. This will be the second MMO to be set in the Star Wars universe; however hopes are already higher for this than the 'failure' that was Star Wars Galaxies. With WoW being the behemoth of a game that it is, however, another MMO, regardless of its name or pedigree will do nothing to even put a dent in WoWs vast subscription figures.
Or will it?"
