Obsidian still talk about Knights of the Old Republic 3
Turns out we're not the only ones who want the Star Wars RPG to return.
RPG specialists Obsidian have admitted that they still regularly discuss ideas for a potential sequel to their 2004 game, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords (Bioware developed the first game before handing over the series to Obsidian for the sequel).
In an interview with IGN, Josh Sawyer admitted that there's members of the team who still discuss ideas for a third game: "I think there are a lot of the people at the studio that would like to do Knights of the Old Republic 3."
"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. Having said that, a lot of time has passed. 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," his colleague, Brandon Adler, added. "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."
The pair were then asked if there was any news regarding a possible RPG based around the gap between Episodes III and IV. They admitted that they hadn't heard anything, before reiterating that there are plenty of Star Wars fans at the studio. While it doesn't sound like we're going to get a KOTOR game anytime soon, Obsidian certainly sounds like they'd be interested in doing something within the IP, and this is certainly something we'd approve of if it were to happen.
