Knights Of The Old Republic 3 Could Be On The Way, Say Devs


Knights of the Old Republic 2 is one of the best Star Wars games ever made, right up there with Battlefront 2 and the LEGO Star Wars games, if you ask me. 

While the idea of ever seeing a third game in the series may seem like a distant hope – especially given EA are now in charge of all future Star Wars titles – KOTR 2 dev Obsidian Entertainment recently revealed that it’s certainly not out of the question.


During a recent Reddit ‘Ask Me Anything’ (AMA) session, the studio expressed a keen desire to return to a galaxy far, far away for a new RPG adventure.

Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart joked that if the fans could pitch Knights of the Old Republic 3 to EA, that we’d find ourselves ‘friends for life’ with the studio.

Social media manager Mikey Dowling added:

The title is out of our hands as EA has the license for the games. We’d love to return to the galaxy far, far away if we had the chance.

A version of Knights of the Old Republic was actually being developed by LucasArts around the time of the second game’s release, but it was scrapped before its time thanks to wide-ranging cuts.

Obsidian also expressed an interest in returning to the Fallout series, following their work New Vegas – and while that’s much more likely, I’d rather see them work with EA and get back to Star Wars.
