BioWare said over the weekend that it intends to have Star Wars: The Old Republic to keep going for “decades.”

The fact it has 19 worlds within the MMO, as pointed out by senior creative director James Ohlen, during the game’s panel at ComicCon on Saturday.

“Well, I can say that we have 19 major worlds. Then we have an indeterminate number of minor worlds,” he said, as transcribed by the excellently-named DarthHater.

“And our goal, obviously this being an online game, that we’re hoping is going to last for decades, we’re going to be, obviously, adding more to the galaxy map as the game progresses. We want to add dozens of worlds. Hundreds of worlds eventually. In 2025, we’ll hopefully have 500 worlds.”

There you go. Millions of years of enjoyment to come from TOR. Well, not millions, but near enough.

The Old Republic is due to release this holiday season.
