It could be argued that we haven’t had a decent Star Wars video game since Knights of the Old Republic, which launched way back when in 2013.
The Star Wars RPG is considered to be one of the finest games ever produced by BioWare (and one of the best RPGs of all time), and we’ve not really had anything like it since.
However, it seems as though Lucasfilm is considering a new Knights of the Old Republic project, according to a report from Variety.
Speaking to MTV, the head of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy said: “You know, we talk about [Knights of the Old Republic] all the time.
“Yes, we are developing something to look at. Right now, I have no idea where things might fall, but we have to be careful that there is a cadence to Star Wars that doesn’t start to feel like too much.
“We don’t have a crystal ball, you know, we tried a little bit with ‘Solo’ to see if we could do two movies a year and whether or not there really was an opportunity for that, and we felt that’s not going to work. So, we back off of that a little bit. But it doesn’t mean we don’t think about lots of different stories, because that’s the exciting thing about this universe.”
From the sounds of it, it looks like KotOR might be being considered as a movie project rather than a game, but who knows?
The game is set about 4,000 years before the founding of the Galactic Empire, where a Sith Lord named Darth Malak is attacking the Republic.
Earlier this year, industry insider Jason Schreier claimed that BioWare has made multiple (yes, multiple!) attempts to revive Knights of the Old Republic, but to no avail.
