Obsidian Hoping For New SW: Knights of the Old Republic Title

Obsidian Entertainment developed Knights of the Old Republic II back in 2004, which is the last addition to the single-player RPG series. Well, the well-known development studio is currently pitching the idea for a brand new KotOR game; that's according to CEO Feargus Urquhart.

“There’s a lot of different eras in Star Wars, and that’s what we would focus on,” said Urquhart. “We pitched a between-Episode III and Episode IV game [to LucasArts]. Because we think that timeframe is super interesting. It’s the fall of the Republic, the extermination of the Jedi, it’s Obi-Wan going off and making sure Luke is OK. You have the Sith, but you have the extermination of all Force users except for very, very few. So it was an interesting time to set a game, and you know, Chris Avellone came up with a really cool story.”

“We also latched onto it because it has elements people remember, but not the stories. It can just completely not involve [the movies]. It can tease them, but nothing else.”

Aha! See? So, now you can continue to vote for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 3 in our unrealistic voting poll that's filled with unofficial titles.

Incidentally, Obsidian's released Dungeon Siege 3 a few years ago and is currently working on the South Park: The Stick of Truth, Meanwhile, the company also has a thing going on Kickstarter, entitled Project Eternity.

Nice pair of tentacles!

Between Ep3 and Ep4 isn't exactly KotOR-era. It'd be more like the Force Unleashed series as far as settings goes.

If Avelone wrote it then it must be good. Also there is a restoration mod and a mod that adds the droid planet that was cut for the KoTOR 2, on deadlystream forums.

I really want KOTOR 3 to focus on Revan. But at this point, I will take any SINGLE PLAYER KOTOR game.

After what they did with KOTOR2, I hope Obsidian doesn't make the 3rd. They never finished the 2nd, which is filled with bugs that the modding community has both tried to fix, and re add the missing content.

Adventure. Excitement. A Jedi craves not these things.
...that's why I'm a fkning Sith and waiting for an actual KOTOR game.

KOTOR was by far the best single player RPG I have ever played, story wise at least. What I liked about it was how it was in the Star Wars universe, but completely separate from the movies, making it something original and new, which is what I'd like to see here.
