: EA has responded
to this post, saying their report does not actually confirm the existence of a Bioware KOTOR
MMO. Original post below:
After a brief stint with Obsidian Entertainment in 2004
, the Star Wars: Kuhniggets of the Old Republic
franchise is set to return to the folks at BioWare. So says an EA investor report (yes, that one
) which listed the game amongst BioWare's multiple ongoing projects. Mind you, it's listed simply as "KOTOR," so there's a small chance that the studio is actually working on Kleptomaniac on the Origami Recliner
. That doesn't sound like something you'd collaborate with LucasArts
on, though ...
While it doesn't preclude the possibility of the company working on more than one online game (or more than one KOTOR
title), the separate listing of "new MMO" in the same report does cast some doubt on earlier KOTOR rumors
. We'd prefer a single-player adventure over online organic meatbaggery, but perhaps you feel otherwise.
