Sony Online's next game 'dedicated' to Star Wars Galaxies

With the upcoming closure of Clone Wars Adventures, Sony Online Entertainment has no more Star Wars-related MMOs in its stable. It closed long-running MMO Star Wars Galaxies more than two years ago. However, SOE president John Smedley is teasing a new project from the company--one that will appeal to fans of now-dead MMO.

"SWG PLAYERS - OUR NEXT GAME (not announced yet) IS DEDICATED TO YOU. Once we launch it... you can come home now," he said in a Reddit AMA. He noted that he would "do everything differently" if given an opportunity to go back to the series.

However, Smedley is not referring to another Star Wars MMO. BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic is still active, and EA is the exclusive publisher of the license. He also tweeted: "just to clarify a point I made in my AMAA - we have a new game that I think SWG vets will like. It's not a new Star Wars game at all."
