Total Video Games
has a new scoop about BioWare
's mysterious MMO project. The site reports
that Electronic Arts
' CEO told investors that his company is funding an MMO in Austin. Of course, that's a no brainer. Since BioWare
is owned by EA
now, we assumed that much. But he want on to say that the MMO is slated for a release in "the fiscal 2010/2011." That means it's coming between April 2010 and March 2011. It'll be a long wait; how sad! That's not all, though.
There's also the rumor that will not -- cannot
die. An alleged disgruntled ex-LucasArts
employee (the "ex" bit because of the recent layoffs) e-mailed gaming blog Kotaku
saying that one of the projects "in the pipeline" at LucasArts
is Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 3.
That alone is no surprise, since LucasArts and BioWare announced
a new collaboration months ago, but ... he also said that KotOR 3
is an MMO.
Oh noes! Not that rumor again! Well, anyway, we're sure our very intelligent readers know to take with a kilogram of salt the paraphrased words of an alleged disgruntled former employee. Right?
