All Star Wars games gone in 2 years?

Disney spent roughly 4 Billion in cash and other things adding up to that total - I'm pretty damn sure they'll make as many games and films as they can dish out with what they have; to think otherwise is foolish.

I just hope they bring out another MMO in a few years, with the concept of Sandboxing over Themeparking (like this mmo).

As a starter I think BW controls this game not Disney, so will the game be here or not in 2 years is dependent on BW. But at the rate things are going in 2 years this game will be down to one server, if it is still here.

Disney does not mess with success. The reason Disney acquires companies is because they are profitable and want to gain by that profitability. The execs tend to take a hands off approach. So as long as the current Star Wars games remain profitable, I do not see Disney shutting them down. And it does not take much for an MMO to be profitable.

As Power Ranger fan i will say that, while Disney does have a halfway decent track record at this point, if there is a portion of a property that don't like or don't know what to do with, they will do everything in their power to kill it off.

No reason why Disney would shut the game down. They have zero expenses for swtor and bioware licenses it. So unless bioware stops making a profit the game will go on.

Will SWTOR be around in 2 years? At this rate, not even close.
Actually, at this rate "yes, definitely!" as the game is doing extremely well. You doom and gloom haters love to ignore the facts, but SWTOR is doing very well now and has the second highest player count of any MMO. So, yeah, doing pretty good.

Maybe it was this message my friend saw and he got confused. Still I wonder if this means no new expansions in this time.

Sadly EA controls everything. Since EA owns BW. If EA cuts the funding the game dies. With all the other blockbuster games EA makes. (Sims, DeadSpace and what have you) This game is really chump change. Heck look how long it took for the first expantion to come out. Oh and did I mention it was only a digital copy, there isn't a hard disc copy anywhere but in the volts of EA/BioWare.
I hate to sound all doom and gloom as one of you put it. Yet thats the way things are. This game isn't nearly what was promised back when it was announced. I get an MMO is hard to make and run, yet many of the players are frustrated. Not enough new content. Both sub classes play the same. There is no real replayability in the game.
Trust me I know how it sounds, but I was a big supporter of this game. I have spent a ton of money playing it. More than any other MMO. I got all my friends to join, yet here I am. Trying to keep my guild together and keep people interested. The lack of content and the lack of dev interaction (SF cantina tour) was bogus. The players are the reason the game does well, and the players need some form of satisfaction from the game.

One character rename token isn't good enough. A few hundred cartel coins isn't good enough either. As a sub, the players deserve more. As a person who has supported this game since its announcment. I am saddened by what I see today. This is a pay to win game. The more money you put in the easier you win. It doesn't take talent or even skill. It's grind all day to get a piece of gear. ( Mind you I haven't looked at the markets since the conversion of planet comendations to planetary comendations) Then grind the next week to finish the armor. Then go do a raid to get better gear.

Ladies and gentlemen this is Star Wars, did Luke wear armor? Did Vader? How about Yoda? People love the Star Wars Universe for the story. Not the gear...
