EA Picks Up Publishing Rights For Star Wars: The Old Republic

It’s pretty safe to say that any MMO and/or Star Wars fan is very much looking forward Star Wars: The Old Republic. Well today LucasArts took the next step in the release of the game…giving it to EA to publish.

With this new agreement, certain publishing, marketing and distribution responsibilities previously designated to LucasArts will shift to EA, so that all publishing, marketing and distribution responsibilities can be centralized for efficiency. Lucasfilm will continue serving as a key partner, collaborating on design and marketing, and as a licensor of the property. Star Wars: The Old Republic is designed to redefine the MMO category by introducing BioWare’s signature storytelling and rich, emotional human performances to the genre.
