Surfer Girl claims that LucasArts is going to pull the plug on the venerable Galaxies to make room for the new multiplayer:
The Artistic Lucases think that they have the only IP that can pose a serious challenge World of Warcraft and find that the setting of KOTOR is too niche to be a threat. They apparently expect the new Star War MMO to have at least three million subscribers by the end of the first year.
If KOTOR is too niche how come half of fandom won’t shut up about it?
Really, if true, the death of Galaxies may be just as well. They are clearly a very disturbed bunch of folks!
