Is Sony Online Entertainment working on another Star Wars MMO? According to Ten Ton Hammer, an inside source at the Penny Arcade Expo has confirmed that SOE has partnered with LucasArts to launch a Star Wars game set during the Clone Wars. Apparently the game will use the browser-based Free Realms engine and will most likely be targeted toward casual players.
Ten Ton Hammer doesn't believe the new game will attempt to compete with BioWare's upcoming Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO. It is more likely that the game will be based on the Clone Wars CGI movie and animated series.
So what are your thoughts on the possibility of another SOE Star Wars MMO? Would you play it? What would such a move mean for Star Wars Galaxies? Only time will tell. It's also best to consider this bit of news as a rumor until SOE confirms it as truth.
