Star Wars Galaxies makes quiet debut

By on June 27, 2003, 3:47 AM
After three years of development and a rumored $20 million budget, LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment launched Thursday their massively multiplayer online role-playing game based on the Star Wars universe: "Star Wars Galaxies".
Now the question is, have you been hearing a lot about this game? I really haven't, although I must admit I'm not much into this type of games I remember I did hear a long time ago of Sony (famous in the genre for Everquest) developing this same kind of game but with a Star Wars theme.

Both CNet and Wired are running stories regarding the quiet launch of the game, using some sort of long-term approach marketing, LucasArts and Sony say they will concentrate the first few months on core genre gamers that have been following closely the development of the title, while at the same time, fixing bugs, putting up more content and fighting preliminar hype that we know can kill a title.
