One of my favorite games of all time is Bioware’s Knights of the Old Republic. Not far behind it is the follow up, Knights of the Old Republic 2, developed by Obsidian Entertainment. It has always been a dream of mine to see the series reborn and apparently it is a dream that Obsidian Entertainment shares.
In an interview with IGN about their new project Pillars of Eternity, Josh Sawyer, the project director, and Brandon Alder, a producer, discussed the teams interest in a potential Knights of the Old Republic 3.
Sawyer believes that many at the developer would love to return to the Old Republic universe.
I think there are a lot of the people at the studio that would like to do Knights of the Old Republic 3.
Sawyer also revealed the reason he believes the series was abandoned by LucasArts.
I think at that time LucasArts was really focused on what they considered to be extreme, extreme blockbusters and even though the Knights of the Old Republic series was pretty successful, it just never seemed like something that was going to happen at that time.
While many at Obsidian would love to return to Knights of the Old Republic, Alder admits nothing is seriously being planned for now.
It’s something that comes up every three to six months. We bring it up and talk about it. Not anything terribly serious, but we just say “wouldn’t it be cool if?”
