It's far too soon to explore Disney Inc.'s relationship with the Star Wars gaming franchise.
Perhaps it has come time to let Star Wars, a near 40 year phenomenon, fade into memory and let new and more innovative ideas concerning strife in the cosmos develop.
I disagree if only because Obsidian knows that their will be a long line of very big and very rich competition trying to get Disney to let them make the next Star Wars game. Obsidian is being prudent. By showing their interest now and maintaining that interest through the coming months, it could land that company a very good deal that could result in another good game. Watching someone else make that game when you have the credentials...and losing out on that money...would be a mistake.
Opinions on Star Wars itself aside, this is smart business.
