Galactic battles.com announces new Star Wars RTS.

Here you go

LucasArts is planning to release a Star Wars real-time strategy game in 2005, company president Jim Ward has revealed in an interview this week, and believes there is "a bright future" for games based on new live-action and animated TV shows.

Since we're probably all Star Wars fans here, it's worth mentioning that Ward had nothing much to say about the new live-action and animated TV shows - other than the Lucas empire plans to make them - but he was prepared to talk a little about the real-time strategy game.

Beyond that, we're currently in the dark, but RTS-loving Star Wars fans will be encouraged to hear that the team at Petroglyph includes veterans of the Command & Conquer series, Earth & Beyond, Z, Gods, and even Dune 2. Between them you'd expect something to top Force Commander, at least. We'll let you know.

We can only Hope.

This might bring a surge of life back to the forum.


I AM the prophet of the truth the protector of Star Wars Truism

Star Wars Truism by it's very nature is eternal and will outlive Star Wars Purism

Everything I say is a lie for the Truth is always greater than the words we use to describe it

Do you have any last words?

Update:

There won't be any more information until early 2005 - probably February as we prepare for E3.

Shame that I have a out of date computer! If they really are releasing the RTS game in 2005 I am in big trouble because I am broke and have no way of purchasing a new computer due to me paying back student loans and auto insurance with my pay checks!

The release is a long way off yet you could save $20 a week and buy a decent computer before its release.

Empire at War
vs
Rise of Legends
vs

Never Mind Decent if you saved up that much a week you could get a State of the art one and be able to buy all the new games for quite a while to come.

State of the Art? I think not.

Let's say SWGB2 is 65 weeks from release. 20$ every week would give him 1300$.

A state of the art computer would be around 2000$.

I'd say at least 85 weeks since it'll almost certainly be delayed.

85 weeks is 1700$

He would need 100 weeks to really get a "state-of-the-art" computer.

I said at LEAST.

he could still get a reasonably State of the Art Computer for $1700. State of the art computers must be double the price they are here in the UK.
