President of Sony Online Entertainment, John Smedley, sat down during last weekends AMA event and gave former Star Wars: Galaxies players a massive ray of hope in a bleak sky with the hint of an upcoming MMO.
This is the first time that the currently unannounced title has been discussed but Smedley stated that the game is dedicated to fans of the now dead and buried Star Wars: Galaxies MMO.
Q: If you could relaunch a shutdown title, which one would you pick and what would you do differently this time?
Smedley: SWG. I would do everything differently. SWG Players - Our next game (not announced yet) is dedicated to you. Once we launch it...you can come home now.
Shortly after the event an intrigued reader discovered this image, giving credence to recent rumors suggesting that the SWG license was due for renewal. It's not exactly confirmation of a new Star Wars title but a game that hopes to embody many of the elements that made SWG so popular is sure to go down well with fans.
