[RUMOUR] New KOTOR?

Postby Prey » Tue Apr 11, 2017 6:48 am

Here's a rumor, courtesy of industry insider guy Liam Robertson, that BioWare Austin, which was originally created to develop the Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO, is now in the early stages of work on a new Knights of the Old Republic game. Robertson revealed the info, based on his anonymous sources, as part of his Patreon-exclusive podcast last week, the good bits of which were then shared with the rest of us by The Star Wars Game Outpost.

“I’ve learned now that [BioWare Austin is] pretty much now exclusively working on Star Wars games and they’re going to be doing that for the indefinite future,” he said. “What they’re currently working on right now—and I have this on good authority—is a sort of remake/revival of Knights of the Old Republic. I don’t know when this is set to come out, but it has been in development for a little while now.”

It'll be some sort of HD remaster, won't it?

I'd probably be happy with that; I never got around to playing them when they were new.

I wouldn't mind a remaster either. Thought the first one was a great game in its day.

They weren't bad at all the original games but I do think that time will not have been kind to them. I'm not sure how I feel about a whole new game in this franchise at the moment. An amazing amount of justice would need to be done to every aspect I think.

Apparently this has all been based off old info and Austin is currently not working on a new KOTOR game. Most of the studio is helping out with the new IP that Edmonton is developing.
