As the era of POTCO fades into the sunset, Disney plans on expanding its virtual world portfolio. Today it was announced that Disney Interactive partnered with Area 52, a game development studio to create Star Wars: Attack Squadrons. Beta sign-ups are now available.
Disney seems to be on a star fighter kick recently, with Star Wars: The Old Republic, the other currently running Star Wars MMO will also be releasing an expansion pack based on ship PvP in February 2014.
While The Old Republic is contracted out to EA, Attack Squadrons is a full Disney product.
What do you think of the announcement? Do you approve of what Disney is doing with "POTCO's money"?
