Star Wars: The Old Republic

Obsidian are still "really interested" in doing a Knights of the Old Republic 3

The stature of Knights of the Old Republic 2 only grows in the memory, we find.

You simply must take another look at Star Wars: The Old Republic. There are at least a couple of worthy Knights of the Old Republic sequels buried in BioWare’s MMO - and one, the Imperial Agent plotline, is the most compelling story ever told about a glorified janitor. 

But we get it: it’s entirely reasonable to be put off by fast-resetting quests, conspicuous mounts and noisy allchat. That’s why whenever Obsidian talk about the possibility of an honest-to-god, single player KOTOR 3, we stop and listen.

“I think there are a lot of the people at the studio that would like to do Knights of the Old Republic 3,” Obsidian’s Josh Sawyer told IGN. “I think at that time LucasArts was really focused on what they considered to be extreme, extreme blockbusters and even though the Knights of the Old Republic series was pretty successful, it just never seemed like something that was going to happen at that time.”

Of course, there isn’t a LucasArts anymore. The publisher-developers were closed by Disney over a year ago.

"A lot of time has passed,” said Sawyer. “I know there are a lot of people at the studio who are really interested in doing a project like that.”

“It’s something that comes up every three to six months,” added Obsidian producer Brandon Adler. “We bring it up and talk about it. Not anything terribly serious, but we just say, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if?’ and just develop some ideas for what we’d do with that stuff.”

It’s worth remembering that Obsidian, unlike the EA-owned BioWare, are contractors. Statements like these in interviews are sometimes a means of grabbing publisher attention - the pre-pre-production phase of development.

But hey: let’s give Obsidian the groundswell support they need. EA have the Star Wars license for games. Can we have another KOTOR out of it, please?

Please bring KOTOR 3 to a serious meeting. We would all love to see the game come out as a new AAA title. I personally would love it if they went and made the universe such that you could hop into the pilot-seat and take control, fly around if you wanted to simply admire the planets from orbit, race across to the next planet and get ambushed along the way, leading to a space battle.

These I admit are only my ideals and many may even dislike these ideas, but this to me would make it my perfect game.
