It's early in the morning, so maybe LucasArts and BioWare thought they'd be able to send out a press release that says next to nothing, but we're not having it. The two have announced a partnership that will yield a "ground-breaking interactive entertainment product." No product details have been announced, but the game will be co-developed and co-published by both BioWare and LucasArts, and if we're to believe the press release, it's going to be really good.
No word on whether this "interactive entertainment product" will come in the form of a videogame, or if it'll be that USB slave Leia Real Doll we've been dreaming about. It's likely a videogame (Knights of the Old Republic MMO?), and you can sign up for updates over at the joint LucasArts/BioWare Web site. You wouldn't want to miss any more press releases announcing any future announcements.
The full press release is after the jump, and if you think you're going to get any more information out of it, you're sadly mistaken.
