As part of a new Gamasutra feature, the co-founder of Star Wars: The Old Republic developer BioWare promises that continuous development will continue on the title as its creative director assures it's his only priority.

"Unlike a lot of other game companies that, once they launch a game, downsize their teams radically, our plan is to keep the team together and continue to focus on building content," says James Ohlen, creative director on Star Wars: The Old Republic, which launches this week.

"There's no secret project currently being done in the Austin studio," reveals Ohlen. "We're very much focused on Star Wars, Star Wars, Star Wars for the foreseeable future."

BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk agrees with Ohlen. "It's hard to say right now what we may or may not do as far as future projects. We're really busy working on future SWTOR content as well as continuing to improve the service. This will never end."

In August, Analyst group Cowan and Company predicted the title will sell 3 million units in its first year on sale. It launches today.

The full feature, in which Ohlen, Zeschuk, and lead writer Daniel Erickson reflect on the development of the game from inception to completion, is live now on Gamasutra.
