You can add one more item to the short list of details we know about Star Wars: The Old Republic, as Simutronics let slip that BioWare's inaugural MMO will be built upon the middleware firm's MMO tech, HeroEngine.

Simutronics, itself a developer of such online games as CyberStrike and GemStone IV, states that its technology allows devs such as BioWare to collaborate on development in real-time from multiple galactic locations. Additionally, the company boasts that HeroEngine can shave as much as 2 years off a project's development cycle, which, if true, could mean we might be wiping away cobwebs from the Old Republic sooner than we thought.
