Koster's last stand?

It's official, Raph Koster, one of the main team members behind Star Wars Galaxies, and previously a team member working on Ultima Online has left Sony Online Entertainment (as reported earlier by TenTonHammer). GameSpot had this to say about that:

"Koster's departure wasn't the only piece of scuttlebutt making the rounds today, but it was perhaps the most accurate. There was also a rumor circulating that SOE would soon lose the rights to the Star Wars license--and suffer the fate of having to delete or otherwise retire the "Star Wars" component of its Galaxies MMORPG title; SOE called that speculation "completely untrue.""

GameSpot's take on the change can be read right here.
