I vaguely suspect yes.

You'd might as well make a poll asking if you're an optimist or a pessimist.

If anything is going to be announced, it's going to be in 2012, after TOR is well under way. From a purely marketing perspective, they're not going to do anything that takes attention away from its flagship game.

No, for the same reasons Lynk gave. But the real question we should be asking is, would we want them to?

Hmm, this is true. If they announced Lego Star Wars: The Clone Wars II, it'd steal all the spotlight from TOR...

Exactly, instead of everyone whining about how they don't want TOR, they'll whine about how they don't want another LEGO Star Wars. They have priorities to keep you know. One thing to whine about at a time.

Are you implying they can't make a good game anymore? If not, who's to say they won't do a good one next?

No, I'm not implying that. Just pointing out a pattern.

i am eagerly awaiting Spikes video Game Awards. That was the first time they announced TFU2, although the game was a disappointment, that is beside the point. The best place to announce a new game is something high profile like that, and it would not surprise me if they decided that the Spike venue was the perfect place for a teaser, if not a full blown trailer for a new game. Cough cought REPUBLIC COMMANDO 2 cough. . .

i like it, an ace combat style air-to-air would be fun. i wonder if they could make a Kinect game like that. like it or not, full body controlling is coming, it would be really cool to be able to control your fighter with your body . . .

I'd much rather a space/aerial combat game with a joystick.

And as far as I know, no Star Wars spacecraft is controlled by the pilot's body...

Voted yes. I heard that they are planning an open world RPG, or something like that. Maybe something will be said during VGA next month.

The way I feel about this is let them release a new game, then we can judge if it's purchase worthy or not. I don't really think constantly releasing mediocre games is really hurting LA, it's just bringing them more income. Fans of Star Wars tend to be so die-hard they will play just about anything and like it.

Probably the only chance left this year for a new game announcement from LucasArts is at Spike VGA's on December 10. I don't think it's going to happen though. LucasArts had one game release this year LEGO Star Wars: The Clone Wars III back in March. Other that that bupkis.

I don't count Star Wars: The Old Republic either since LucasArts relinquished all publishing duties to EA. The only thing I know of that LucasArts has been involved with on TOR is the music. LucasArts definitely has at least 1 game in the pipeline though so I guess it's just a matter of when they choose to announce it.
