A reboot of BioWare’s famed RPG title “Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic” could be on the way.
Cinelinx (via IGN) reports that publisher Electronic Arts are currently at work on the project which is dubbed a “re-imagining/sequel” rather than an actual remake of the beloved 2003 game from Obsidian Entertainment.
The 2004 sequel will also be worked into it apparently. The new title reportedly plans to integrate elements from the first two “Knights of the Old Republic” games “in order to bring certain things” into the current “Star Wars” canon.
In April, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy was asked about “Knights of the Old Republic” and mentioned they are “developing something to look at” – that’s now been seen as her potentially referring to this game.
After a rough start, EA has stabilised when it comes to “Star Wars” game properties. The disgraced “Star Wars Battlefront II” has been turned around into something quite decent, while the single-player “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order” has been a critical and commercial success.
