UPDATE July 2008: it has been reportedly confirmed that KOTOR 3 is under development and will be an MMO.
Even though Star Wars gaming headlines have been dominated by Lucasarts’ announcement about its upcoming release Force Unleashed, I thought I would post here in regards to another highly anticipated game – Knights of the Old Republic 3 (Kotor 3).
Both Lucasarts and Obsidian Entertainment (creators of Kotor 2 – The Sith lords) have confirmed their intention to go ahead with the project (check the links below) without making a specific announcement about its release date. Not surprisingly, the Star Wars gaming community is buzzing with anticipation as many Kotor forums have already been filled with Kotor 3 prediction threads.
Recently Lucas Fan Network (LFN) owners Aristotle and Visac were interviewed by StarWarsKnights.com where they had the chance of describing their working relationship with Lucasarts and their unique opportunity of previewing upcoming Star Wars releases.
When asked about the possibility of seeing Kotor 3 soon, both men denied making any comments about it since they are bound by Lucasarts Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). At the same time, they didn’t deny its existence and added that more information will be available soon.
Who knows? Maybe Kotor 3 is closer than we think…
