George Lucas backs Old Republic MMO
George Lucas is apparently throwing his full weight behind Star Wars: The Old Republic, although producer Tom Nichols does admit to Eurogamer.net that the old-time filmmaker isn't a fan of MMO titles. Apparently, he hasn't played World of Warcraft.
LucasArts' Nichols reportedly demonstrated the game to Lucas last week, revealing that "they showed him the art style of the game, we talked about how story is communicated and showed him some examples of that."
Lucas is excited, and recognises the importance of Stars Wars heading back into "the MMO space," while his son likes to play MMO games, including Star Wars Galaxies. Continued support for the title is assured: "We have many other features planned to support Star Wars Galaxies," Nichols revealed. "We see no reason why the two games can't exist together."
More online chit-chat soon.
