Sony Online Entertainment and Lucas Arts has announced that Star Wars: galaxy charged by SOE will be off the line formally on December 15, which means that this classic game is going to exit online game market after eight years of operation.
John Smedley, chairman of SOE, says that contract between Lucas and us expires in 2012, so we all think now is a good period for ending the operation of the game. Smedley stresses that it is the common decision.
Smedley denied that SOE was attacked by hackers some time ago and that hackers events had effects on decision whether should stop running Star Wars: galaxy. This problem we have already discussed with Lucas Arts, the intent of the parties is roughly the same. It took a long time to fix the exact time of stop operation. No any other accident affects or changes our decision.
He also says, Star Wars: the galaxy has been operating for a long time, and this is not easy. The game is suspended, not because players are too few, the number of players has long been in a stable state.
Its exit may have some relationship with online Star Wars: The Old Republic, swtor credits,since the latter development has been regarded as World of Warcraft biggest competitor. Once Star Wars: The Old Republic is under the operation, it will bring huge impact on Star Wars: galaxy in short term. It is obviously that SOE does not like to see that result, and Lucas art also doesn't want the two which are of their own authorized games to kill each other. And after operation for eight years, Star Wars: galaxy unavoidably seems to be out of date, so such fate is inevitable.
Today the Star Wars:The Old Republic is formally open for those players who pre-order by means of retailers or Origin platform from EA.EA says purchased quantity is as high as 2 million. The game will be formally open to all client players who have paid for it on December20.
