Despite Star Wars: The Old Republic’s recent unveiling, LucasArts has pledged to continue to support the original Star Wars MMO, Star Wars Galaxies. In a recent interview with Eurogamer, LucasArts executive Tom Nichols confirmed new content and a desire to have Galaxies compete with SW: TOR whenever it is released.

From the interview:

We have many other features planned to support Star Wars Galaxies. We see no reason why the two games can't exist together.
Nichols then went on to say that some of the problems in Galaxies wouldn’t be repeated in SW: TOR. He also talked about the value inherent in listening to community response as well as what consumers really want out of a Star Wars game, which just so happens to involve becoming a hero quickly and effectively.

Knights of the Old Republic and other Star Wars media no longer considered canon

That's a nice extended universe you've got there, Star Wars. It'd be a shame if it were invalidated. Actually, that's exactly what's happening. Lucasfilm announced just that today via the official Star Wars blog, where it wa...more
