they could but I can't see them lisecening out a MMO. I suspect the terms of the agreement where more to allow disney to publish casual facebook and tablet games. which seems to be the direction Disney PERSONALLY perfers to go with video games. Disney's basicly not intreasted in persueing bit AAA video games. thats WHY they handed an exclusivity deal to EA. so EA could persue that "expected" angle of the franchise and leave them more or less out of having to deal with it

Well, if this article is right and these are the first Screenshots of the "SWG come-on home!" MMO... well, then, sorry sci-fi fans:

(I am making no claims that the final product won't still be an excellent sandbox game, it's way too early to tell, but the widespread hope that it will be a sci-fi sandbox game seems... unlikely now.)
Given the choice whether to rule a corrupt and failing empire or to challenge the fates for another throw, a better throw, against one's destiny, what was a king to do?
But does one ever truly have a choice? One can only match, move by move, the machinations of fate, and thus defy the tyrannous stars.

Is the new sandbox set in an Amish community?

Everyone left because once Jedi's were introduced, everyone thought they, and no one else deserved to be a Jedi. It was crying on a epic level that I've never seen before or since. But for the first 6 months, it was truly incredible. 30 classes, vast customization, and best crafting system I've seen in any game. Even after the first wave of defections we still had a vast and healthy community. Many people like myself didn't care about being a Jedi, so what we did was hunt them endlessly, and made them pay, because most people who did have Jedi's were the most pompous aholes you would come across in game, because they thought they were better than you because they had a Jedi. So it was great hunting them, killing them, and reading their endless hate tells that they would send you after the fact.

So much jealousy in you. It's not healthy.
Those that demand respect deserve only pity.

SMH. Smedley to this day doesn't understand why people loved SWG. Just read his last tweets on what's supposed to be home. Look elsewhere for that type of game. Maybe the re population
