Star Wars: The Old Republic is "PC-only," says LucasArts boss


LucasArts online head Tom Nichols has told VG247 that upcoming BioWare MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic is a PC-only game, ostensibly conflicting a report that the title is in consideration for console release.

"It is PC-only," said Nichols when asked if KOTOR's Xbox tradition would be upheld.

When pushed on whether or not the game would come to consoles in the future, Nichols there was only one version currently in the works.

"We're just focussed on the PC platform at this time," he added.

Nichols was speaking at the San Francisco launch of The Old Republic, on the same day EA Games president Frank Gibeau told Eurogamer there was a possibility the title could move to consoles.

“They’re both under consideration,” he said, speaking of TOR and Mythic's Warhammer Online, but added, “We’re not really in a place to commit or announce anything specific with regards to those.”

Upshot: don't expect The Old Republic on your 360 any time soon.
