With the success of Battlegrounds, do you have plans for a SWGB 2?

I can't talk about future products, or else a big guy with a lightsaber comes into my office and hacks off an appendage, but I can say that I am excited by the idea of a Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds II, as long as it is fresh and exciting, while still maintaining the fun aspects of Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds.
