We have been spoiled with KOTOR news this week. First KOTOR 2 finally makes its way over to Steam. And now Obsidian Entertainment, maker of the second RPG in the series, has stepped up to the plate and stated they "Would so love" to make a third.
There's still been no news out from LucasArts on whether they've plans for a third KOTOR game, and the Steam release of the second is hardly evidence that it's on its way. If anything they may be a little wrapped up with Star Wars RPGs, what with them turning The Old Republic into a free-to-play title. But Obsidian, who were contracted to make the second KOTOR whilst BioWare was hard at work on it's own projects - Dragon Age and Mass Effect - has come out and stated they'd love to make a third.
Thanks to the reporting of the fellows over at DSOGaming, we know that a Reddit user contacted to Obsidian about getting a digital copy of the game for Steam and followed up with a question about the sequel's development, to which he had this response:
So that's heartening news. Though what with Chris Avellone being involved in the Wasteland 2 project, and the studio focusing its attention on THQ's South Park RPG, there's little hope for them to get involved with a sequel for a while yet. Still, fingers crossed.
