Yeh lol. Sony made SWG. You think that now EA have all the rights, Sony wanna give EA the chance to use the SWG name instead. I think Sony would think otherwise.
Neither SOE nor BW has the "rights" to any Star Wars title. But you knew that. LucasArts as a subsidiary of Disney owns the rights to all things Star Wars and grants licenses to third parties to proceed with titles under pretty extensive conditional useage contracts. But you knew that. Yes, LucasArts renewed the name "Star Wars Galaxies" back in December. Yes, SOE made a crypic announcement alluding to former players of SWG "coming home" soon. Do the two events have anything in common? Spectulation only, but it sure does look like it. I'd say BW needs to get their ____ together. Between this and Star Wars Attack Squadrons it's going to be quite a challenge for them soon.
