While we’ve already heard about the upcoming Knights of the Old Republic MMO – both from the leaked script and angry ex-employees – there’s been no word on a possible release date. Until now, that is.
Speaking to investors at a recent stock conference, EA CEO John Riccitello let slip mention of the upcoming MMO that they might be co-publishing with LucasArts.
"It's giving us strong new entries in online. For example, we're funding the MMO in Austin, which is helping us a lot."
As TotalVideoGames points out, the only EA-owned studio in that area is BioWare’s MMORPG satellite studio. BioWare is seen as the most likely candidate to be developing the game. Coincidence? Maybe, but it still seems somewhat likely. At least EA shouldn’t feel the need to include any ridiculously lame copy protection, since it’s an MMO.
