Bobby Kotick, the boss of Activision Blizzard is at it again, as this time he's made a cheap shot at BioWare's new MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic.

When asked if he thinks many people will leave World of Warcraft, Blizzard's hugely successful MMO, to play The Old Republic, he simply said:

"I can't say that we're hugely concerned about that... the audience for World of Warcraft is a pretty committed group of players."

With World of Warcraft's third expansion, Cataclysm, set to launch in a week, it'll be hard for any MMO to take subscribers away.
