    For those of you playing SWG until ToR rolls about.

    It's sad. For all its faults, I have some fond memories with SWG. But it's not unexpected, and hopefully we're heading to bigger and better places.

    There is the Star Wars Galaxies Emulator which is working on recreating the game prior to the Combat Update and the NGE. They have a decent alpha version up for play and their test server has a more advanced version which is further along than the alpha version. The news of SWG's demise was tough, but sort of a relief in that we now know that it can no longer be mutilated any further. If any of you are interested in checking it out, go to www.swgemu.com and check things out.

    If they're shutting down SWG, doesn't that mean we can reasonably expect TOR to be coming out sometime next year-ish?

    One would hope so. Unless they're expecting the Clone Wars MMO to keep us busy... which it probably won't!

    I'll have to find the link, but in an article I read on yahoo yesterday. The Sony ceo said they ended it on mutual terms for a game lucas has coming out around 2012. Take that as you will.

    BioWare has stated, over and over again, and very recently, that it is ON TRACK to release in 2011. Most likely, that means in November, just in time for the holidays.

    The shutting down of SWG has very little to do with SWTOR's release date. Even if TOR were not coming out until 2012, SWG would still be shutting down. It simply is a dead MMO.
