Star Wars RTS Revealed

A Q&A with LucasArts President Jim Ward on Yahoo! News (thanks Frans and Voodoo Extreme) reveals plans for a previously unannounced Star Wars RTS game in the works at Petroglyph, a developer comprised of ex-Westwood employees:

As a result, we will have new live-action and animated TV shows over the next few years, and I think there's a bright future there for games based on these new properties as well as original "Star Wars" games like a new real-time strategy PC game that Petroglyph is developing for next year. This game will take the (real-time strategy) genre in a new direction and will balance gameplay between the hard-core gamers who buy these games and the broader audience that's familiar with the "Star Wars" brand.

Kiss o death. I read we want to make this game fun for people who play our console games.

Pretty much. Get ready for auto-everything. You'll probably control at most 3 main units and the rest will pretty much run on autopilot. And forget about things like macromanagement, multitasking or anything else interesting. Now, why does that sound familiar?

I'm praying that Starcraft 2 will save us and put the S back in RTS, but I'm also not holding my breath.
