Expect Star Wars stuff to be pulled soon...

62 replies 898 views Edited May 6, 2013

EA has bought rights to make Star Wars games... and as we all know, EA pulled pretty much all of thier merchandise from Home.

We need more smart newbies like yourself :smileyhappy:

Seriously, this is probably gonna happen. EU Homeys have jumped to this conclusion in the space removal thread.

Seems to me they might want to promote Star Wars now that they have the license. I don't see why pulling it is a given. We might be surprised and see more of it.

I for one am hoping the stuff does not get pulled, but as EA has discontinued services with Home, i can see it happening.

It's possible. I wouldn't jump to that conclusion just yet. I know I do miss the EA spaces. They were pretty special as was some of their store content. Hopefully if it does happen the community will be told in advance. 

 

I personally bought a lot of their costumes when they first came out. I don't spend much time in the Cantina but it is a very nice space and it wouldn't be good if we lost it.

It all depends on what the company feels like doing with their assets.

I believe another Home company, took the rights of the Home content.

It was spoke about a few times on here, in the past 2 months.

Not necessarily, there's been a few companies that their license has ran out but the spaces or content still remain.

I would like to see a re-negotiation with EA to bring that content back. and to keep the content they still have left it Home. Star Wars.the poker spaces, the EA jeresy's, those were loved by many.

Examples, please?

We know now that Home will be gone by next April. I intend to enjoy it as long as it's around. I hope you do, too.

A negotiation to bring easdRob back wouldn't hurt either!
