Star Wars fans all over the world have been going through a whirlwind of emotions. The y have Star Wars: The clone wars to look forward to in February but at the same time sources have confirmed that Star Wars: Obi Wan Kenobi has been delayed as well as reduced from 6 episodes to 4 episodes for quality concerns.
But now seems like there is a light at the end of the tunnel, as Cinelinx, a somewhat reliable source has reported that a new Star Wars game is in the making. More specifically the source informs that the latest game will be a remake of BioWare’s Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
To those who don’t know this classic game The Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic series, often abbreviated as KotOR, is a RPG video game series and subsequent comic book series based on the fictional universe of Star Wars by George Lucas.
Its importance in the fandom is huge since with the discarding of the Expanded Universe on April 25, 2014 and rebranding of it as Star Wars Legends, KotOR multimedia project is the only remaining source that continues to produce Legends information.
The game has generally been well received by critics as well as the fans alike. During its release the game garnered 35 ‘Game of the Year’ awards. Many fans have also dubbed the game as one of the best games of all time.
Now as to who will develop the game. It is a huge question as Bioware the developer of the first and third rendition of the game, since the company is pretty deep in the development of Anthem, Dragon Age 4, and a new Mass Effect game.
Considering the speculation that Disney is creating an ambitious multimedia project known as Project Luminous. It wouldn’t really be a stretch to imagine that EA would like to go back and recreate this masterpiece.
I hope the force is with us and we get our hands on this game.
