Petroglyph Sought Star Wars: Empire At War Sequel

During a AMA session on reddit yesterday to discuss Forged Battalion's early access launch, developer Petroglyph Games reveals they approached EA a couple of times expressing a desire to create a sequel to Star Wars: Empire At War, their 2006 Star Wars RTS game (thanks GameWatcher). "We would LOVE to work on Empire at War again - we've been tossing around ideas ever since the new movies came out," explains Petroglyph's Torpid. "However, the decision is entirely up to Disney (the IP holder) and Electronic Arts (the exclusive video game license holder)." Here's a response from Petroglyph's Ted to the question about possibly revisiting Empire at War with an official expansion:
Unfortunately, no official expansion is in the works - although we are still collecting data and hoping to get another patch out based on feedback.

This is something that is purely corporate. I don't have details, but EA has the license to do all Star Wars games and they seem focused on making a few titles at a very high quality bar. So, they are using all their available resources to that end, which means that if you're not into FPS, it's not currently a priority.

We have reached out to them a few times to see if they would be interested in contracting us to build an Empire at War II at the same quality level as their other Star Wars FPS titles, but nothing has resulted from that (yet).

Wow you can't just blurt out controversial opinions like that without a trigger warning dude.

Sorry. Don't worry though - soon a debate will arise about whether EA sucked more under Obama or Trump, and maybe W and Slick Willy will get thrown in there. Then some foreigner will make some comment about how dumb Americans are and how insert country name here is way better, and at some point Hitler and Fascism will ne referenced. Racism accusations will be tossed around briefly, perhaps with a dash of misogyny, then we'll settle into your bog standard tinfoil hat-wearing right wing wackos versus egg-sucking, commie liberals discussion every thread devolves into, and all will be forgotten.
