Gamespot is reporting that LucasArts and Bioware have joined forces on some upcomming mystery project. Could this be the KOTOR MMO that has been rumored for the last few weeks?
From the article:
Today, though, the KOTOR MMORPG rumor flamed up again, fueled by the unveiling of an official alliance between LucasArts and BioWare. Early this morning, the two companies announced they are collaborating on ‘a ground-breaking interactive entertainment product’ and launched a co-branded Web site, www.LucasArtsBioWare.com.
‘Through our previous collaborations, we know that BioWare has an impressive ability to blend gripping stories with technological advancements, and we believe that our upcoming product will deliver an experience that will span the traditional boundaries of video game entertainment,’ LucasArts president Jim Ward said in a statement.
Unfortunately, despite Ward’s kind words and similarly rosy statements from BioWare co-CEOs Ray Myuzka and Greg Zeschuk, next to no information was revealed about the game. ‘Details will be unveiled at a later date,’ was as specific as the announcement got. However, since LucasArts almost exclusively publishes games based on the Star Wars universe, the chances of the game in question being Star Wars-related are high.
This could be especially excellent geek gaming news!
