Rumor: Sony Prepping Casual Star Wars MMO

By Chris Faylor, Sep 04, 2009 12:25pm PDT Star Wars Galaxies maker Sony Online Entertainment may be crafting another MMO set in the popular sci-fi universe, provided that Ten Ton Hammer is to be believed.

Citing an "inside source," the site reports that it "sounds like" the project is a casual MMO set during The Clone Wars television show, and that the game will use the same technology as SOE's recent free-to-play minigame-filled MMO FreeRealms.

The site goes on to speculate that should Sony create a casual-oriented Star Wars MMO that shared the distinct look of the Clone Wars series, it wouldn't necessarily "take on" BioWare's anticipated Star Wars MMO, which is set in the "Old Republic" era.
