Second, there are lots of other Star Wars options or other franchises that Lucasarts could be working on. Diluting the attention that SWTOR gets by announcing another SW MMO would be counter-productive for Lucasarts at this point.

Also, Lucasarts and EA have booths side-by-side at E3, I can just imagine the atmosphere there if Lucasarts were going to announce they were in bed with another publisher producing a direct rival to the title EA/Bioware have been working on for so long and only recently released
could be an internal project.

Given that EA has stated TOR is not one of their top priority games, it wouldn't surprise me if Lucasarts planned something regardless. I'm not saying it is an SWG2, but rather an MMO in the general sense (No way to know until the reveal). Doing so would work out in LA's favor overall any way. They get to profit off of TOR AND their internal project. In the end, money matters. All else is secondary.

If EA tries to bark, remember that Lucasarts also holds all the cards and can, through strong-arming and underhanded tactics, cripple TOR by refusing to approve any further development to the game unless EA backs off.
Sarcasm is just one of my services.

As far as I understand things, a franchise is a sliced potato that has been cooked in boiling grease and drowned in ketchup.

So basically all we know about SWG2 so far is that it has a new food recipe involving Corellean tubers. Probably for buffing your action bar? It's anybody's guess, really.
