The Old Republic Lead Designer: "We Are Looking At Free-to-Play"

BioWare's Emmanuel Lusinchi, lead designer on Star Wars: The Old Republic, tells gamesTM that the quality of some competing MMOGs is more of a factor than how they are free-to-play as something that has caused them to rethink their approach to their MMORPG. Along the way, he does admit that they are "looking at" F2P: "The MMO market is very dynamic and we need to be dynamic as well," he says. "Unless people are happy with what they have, they are constantly demanding updates, new modes and situations. So we are looking at free-to-play but I canít tell you in much detail. We have to be flexible and adapt to what is going on."

And that's what you get for turning a beloved single player series into the MMO noone asked for.

Lucasarts and Georgy must be livid at EA.

(With his "retirement" and fuck you attitude towards the fans) I'm starting to think George doesn't care anymore. And that's a good thing! Maybe SW will eventually be passed to someone that respects it's history and treats it right.

$300M down the drain. Lucasarts and Georgy must be livid at EA.

This will go down as the biggest folly of the gaming industry, surpassing even ET.

That didn't take long. At all.

Then again only the blind and the biodrone didn't see this coming so soon after release.
