It looks like we may actually get a new entry into the Knights of the Old Republic franchise. According to Bespin Bulletin, they have heard from a source that a new installment of the beloved franchise is in development, but not by Bioware or an EA owned studio.

“Amongst my digging, I heard there is a Knights of the Old Republic project in development somewhere,” Bespin Bulletin said. “I talked to a couple of people, and I also found out that Jason Schreier said that it’s not with EA, and we’ll ‘never guess’ who the studio is that’s making this game.”

The developer that would make the most sense outside of Bioware would be Obsidian Entertainment, the developer of KOTOR 2, but there has been no word from Obsidian about any new development of the KOTOR franchise, and it is highly doubtful that Lucasfilm Games would choose an Xbox owned studio to develop a game that will almost surely be multi-platform.

Nate Najda of Wushu Studios has also confirmed the KOTOR development rumors, and had this to say about the studio leading the development.

“It’s not as mysterious as you think. It’s just not a household name most people are aware of.”

If this announcement is indeed true and it picks up in the wake of KOTOR 2, this game would essentially officially canonize both of the previous KOTOR titles, something that fans have been asking for since the Disney acquisition.
