After a long day pouring over toys, getting force choked by Vader, and drooling over Slave Leias, it was time for the Star Wars: The Old Republic after party. Drinks, photo ops, and a panel discussing some of the future plans for The Old Republic were in the cards. We fought our way through the sea of raving Jedi and Sith lords squaring off in the Celebration plaza breakdancing to EDM with lightsabers blazing. Once inside the Hilton’s upstairs ballroom where the TOR gathering was happening, I was bounced from person to person asking questions about the game. Finally I was brought behind the panel stage to speak with TOR creative director, Jesse Sky.
I was told I had exactly 1 minute before he had to go on stage for the panel and livestream.
I asked if his team had recognized the potential of Galactic Starfighter, and if so, did they have any plans to expand on its current state. He was quick to reassure me that there is a strong understanding with their creative team that GSF has a lot of potential, and they would love to do something more with it. Sadly, he ended the statement with a big but; that there are no immediate plans to expand on that platform. For the foreseeable future we will have to enjoy GSF for what it is, and most likely, what it will be for a while.
