Bioware have stated that they hope there upcoming MMORPG, Star Wars: The Old Republic, will last for “decades” and I think that with the amount of content that is in the game that an extremely long life for this MMORPG is not out of the question. The game, for which last a 2011 release date was confirmed by EA, is described by EA Games boss Frank Gibeau as “gigantic”, although he wishes the game hadn’t cost quite so much money to make.
The game has 19 major worlds which were confirmed by senior creative director James Ohlen during a Comic-Con panel and you can read more of what he said below:
“Well, I can say that we have 19 major worlds,” he said. “Then we have an indeterminate number of minor worlds. And our goal, obviously this being an online game, that we’re hoping is going to last for decades, we’re going to be, obviously, adding more to the galaxy map as the game progresses.”
How long do you think the game will last? Please post your thoughts in the comments section below.
