The full sentence that the quote comes from reads: "While EA studios will develop for the core Star Wars gaming audience, Disney Interactive will focus on delivering new Star Wars games for casual audiences on mobile, social, tablet, and online gaming platforms."

An MMO doesn't really fit the bill for "causal audiences", and more likely falls under the mandate for EA: "the creation of new high quality Star Wars games aimed at the core gaming audience and spanning multiple genres for console, PC, mobile, and tablets."
I'd also like to point out from what you've quoted that, "online gaming platform" is very different than "online game".
