Star Wars Galaxies MMORPG Closes for Good

PC Gamer offers a touching insider’s view and sendoff for Star Wars Galaxies here. Now that the license between Sony and Lucasarts has ended, Star Wars Galaxies has ceased to be.

Next week, Star Wars: The Old Republic will launch (pre-orders should already have access to the virtual world); it is co-developed by Bioware, EA, and Lucasarts.

One virtual world ends while another one begins. This is the apparent immediacy of the Internet-enabled present. However, the transitional switch took years in planning, production, and testing.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
