BioWare MMORPG arriving in 2009

BioWare makes an announcement about its use of complex event processing. By the end of the announcement, we're expecting a BioWare MMORPG in 2009.
... BioWare has not announced the name or described the nature of its online game, but Dalton said it will be launched in 2009. Dalton said his firm wants to do more than match the state of the art represented by such online games as World of Warcraft. He expects the complex event processing built into his firm's game to allow richer role playing and interactions between players.

... Its 2009 release of an online game will be its first foray into what's known as the massively multiplayer online role playing game. Bioware reported revenues of $17.5 million in 2003 before it was taken private and stopped reporting revenues. Part of its MMORP game development is underway in Edmonton, Canada, and part at its labs in Austin, Texas, Dalton said.
According to EGM magazine BioWare opened a new studio in April dedicated to producing an MMORPG rumoured to be set in the Knights of the Old Republic universe. I'd wait for an announcement before getting excited about another addition to the KotoR franchise, but let's face it, whatever it is, a BioWare MMORPG is probably going to be good.

Note: updates are going to be a bit late today as I've got an exam (which I really should be studying for right now). Some of you might have gone to bed by that point, so I apologize. Things will be back to normal tomorrow.
