More KOTOR III Possibilty News! (KOTOR MMO Confirmed?)
 
NEWS ALERT!!

ANOTHER KOTOR RUMOUR/HOPE LURKING ON IGN

POSTED 26th September 2005 (AEST)

Hello Ladies and Gents

Guess what I found while browsing the obisidian fourms?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mailbag 08.30.05


Nothing more than the greatest bundle of all time.

Hoping

Q.I see that Bioware is recruiting for some new games, which really kinda bums me out. I was hoping for a Knights of the Old Republic 3. With the power of the new Xbox, and maybe a story set in the expanded universe after the movies (like perhaps the Thrawn trilogy) they probably could have easily had the missing killer app in the launch lineup and made a fortune. Any idea if they'll ever make another one?

I believe (think) this is the answer all you KOTOR fans have been waiting for? see below for the answer by an IGN offical -Kookaburra

A.Since another mailbag junkie had recently asked that question and you have bought it up again, I just happen to have a vague but positive answer for you. I spoke with LucasArts the other day and the spokesperson said that they see the series as a franchise, an ongoing franchise, which means that yes, they certainly will make another game. But don't count on BioWare making that game. Most likely, the developer of KOTOR: The Sith Lords will hand the third one, which I am 99% sure will be on Xbox 360. Unless LucasArts decides to take the series to the Xbox next year…which I somehow doubt. I wish I knew more about next year's Xbox lineup, but nobody will say anything. My theory is that developers will make a few, non-important games on the Xbox next year, but the bulk of their money and the important franchises will head to Xbox 360.

Answered by a guy named --Douglass

I found another KOTOR III possibility! well just take this one for the moment as a rumour. This linkie is at least some good news for a possible KOTOR III.(I ain't saying KOTOR III is offical-just a might)

Great news! So finally some solid confirmation that it is going to be done. Not that we all didn't know it would be done sometime anyways just because the first 2 were so good, but this is good to hear.

RedHawke 09-27-2005 02:02 AM

Unfortunately most of us who were here for the K2 rumors and stuff have heard things like this before...

I'll belive it when LA announces it and puts that up on their site. ;)

Prime 09-27-2005 09:03 AM

Who is this Douglass dude anyway? So if what he is saying is true we are likely looking at 2007 at the earliest

fresnosmokey02 09-27-2005 10:24 AM

News and rumors keep me hopeful. But like the man said, I'll believe it when I see an actual announcement. I expect that the first actal hard confirmation of the game will be at an E3 show within the next two years. If we don't see it by E3 2007 I expect it will never be made.

Drinking Sith 09-27-2005 11:43 AM

This is great news but still i agree with you all I will only Totoally belive in it if it is gonna be a actual announcement from the developers of kotor2

That is wise, given the way projects are wont to get canned in the games industry. Though even an E3 announcement is not a 100% guarantee of anything.

FunSolo 10-01-2005 10:31 AM

i dont believe that they come up wit a kotor3 in 2006. its more possible in 2007 or later. cause they'll prolly use the new engine of neverwinter nights 2. if they still keep the old engine they piss off too many ppl just for the fact that its not uptodate.
but no matter when it comes out, i hope they will get more time for it, cause i dont wanna see that much cut content anymore or a buggy one. otherwise this gameseries is dead like the star trek games.

The Doctor 10-01-2005 11:16 AM

I heard rumours that it wouldn't com out until 2009, but I could be wrong...

FunSolo 10-01-2005 11:30 AM

i think we all hope you'r wrong bout this :D

SITHSLAYER133 10-03-2005 09:51 AM

If only the companies worked like that...greedy bastards.

stingerhs 10-04-2005 02:47 AM

well, i think this was more of a 'Burning Questions' type thing like they have on Gamespot. basically, its were one of the editors of the site comments and responds to questions that other users have about one particular subject or the other.

in this case, what i've just read sounds to me like it was just speculation to hopefully appease the person that asked the question. *shrugs*

Prime 10-04-2005 09:41 AM

The guy doesn't even know what platform it would be on. He is just as in the dark as everyone else.

j3di_sean 10-08-2005 01:06 PM

I'm not sure if someone posted this yet... but here is some news on the possibility of KOTOR3. Only time will tell whether it is true and I seriously do hope it is...

http://www.fi-sci.net/index.php?opti...=318&Itemid=44

Auark Streck 10-08-2005 07:31 PM

i sure hope it comes out soon.

The_Maker 10-08-2005 10:40 PM

The link sean posted sounds kinda iffy... 14 f*****g years after K2? o_0
Thats 19 years after K1... can you imagion how OLD Revan, and Bastila, and Carth and the whole original party would be?

Dang Old >.<

And using the Jade Empire system doesn't sound like LucasArts either, I mean sure people like it but if this thing is coming to the newer generation systems do they REALLY expect us to still like the older game engines?

I dunno, sounds like a bunch of bull to me =/

And if it WAS "under development for months now" wouldn't the website for LucasArts have at least SOME sort of "heads up" or "new game" alert?
Sounds fake to me :sign2:

IndianaSolo 10-09-2005 12:48 AM

So basically it's a rehash of what we've heard countless times. Nothing concrete, and nothing really new.

It's not really rocket science, and it doesn't take an "insider" to know that another KOTOR game will be made. Lucasarts has said as much everytime they've been asked about it. So I'm not really sure how this is any different than the countless other threads about KOTOR speculation/rumor/innuendo.

Lightsider 10-09-2005 01:32 AM

Hey, Obsidian has been working on an as yet untitled rpg for the past year, which in turn say it will be released by early 2006 or just after launch of the 360, cant remember or find the page I printed off but this is good news!! It lists it on the releases for the 360 on IGN. My fingers are crossed on this one!!

TheExileReturns 10-09-2005 09:37 AM

I've seen the 2006 lineup for Xbox 360 (Electronic Gaming Monthly issue Nov 2005) and it does not include any Star Wars titles (other than Mercenaries 2, which is a lucas arts game.) My guess is they will make the Kotor III game on the current Xbox system and probably do not consider this game to be a major release. That might be a good thing because they won't be in a big hurry to release it like they did with Kotor II. So I'm guessing Dec '06.

SpaceAlex 10-09-2005 12:14 PM

I just hope they don't forget about PC. Considering how few games i play, it would be a waste to buy a console as i would't be using it very often. And besides, games on a console are difficult to modify.

It's been said countless times by Obsidian that their unnamed project (Project New Jersey) is "not a sequel". K3 would in fact be considered a sequel. Thus, unless Obsidian is lying or stretching the truth, PNJ is not K3.

j3di_sean 10-10-2005 03:13 AM

If you were the developers... would you consider making kotor3 or forget about it and work on entirely new games? Just asking...

Maybe with this ... we can guess whether kotor3 will be in the making or not...

TheExileReturns 10-11-2005 08:59 AM

I don't think Obsidian is working on this game (Kotor III) because if it was in development they would be saying something about it on their website. all we have right now is some suit working for Lucas Arts saying "We consider Kotor to be a franchise." That vague statement says to me that they will make a sequel eventually, but they have nothing concrete right now. Hopefully, the collective won't be working on this game because the Revenge of the Sith game really blew big chunks.

Ztalker 10-11-2005 01:45 PM

Myself, i think there are 2 options:

Obsidian or Bioware

Since Obsidian already showed loyalty to quikly make a game (It doens't matter if it's a f*ck-up to Lucasarts) and they know the engine. They are the ones with the biggest chance.

The ideal Kotor 3 would be made by Bioware. But Lucasarts needs a developer that they can put pressure on, and that they can blame for a bad game.Bioware doens't like to be pushed around, and does what it likes. That's what makes their games so good.So they won't make K3.

Sorry for the cynism, but since trials of obi-Wan (with Hk-47 ffs!) and kotor 2, i've lost al faith in Lucasarts.

I've read that a long time ago about KOTOR being a frachise. The thing is a storyline has to be developed first and approved before KOTOR III comes out.

Lightsider 10-13-2005 03:57 AM

good point!!

Well, I was thinking that they might be trying to mislead since kotor has been a pretty good money making series, and a new tittle would leave alot to chance. Also these developers are really secretive about what they are working on and seem to thrive on keeping us in missery while we wait. it's almost like a drug that they dangle in our faces, the rats.

Yeah, but they wouldn't have stated in no uncertain terms that it is NOT a sequel. All they had to do was just saying nothing. Keep quiet. But they chose to actually comment on the fact their next game is not a sequel.

Well said!!

I was truly upset about KOTOR 2 being rushed...because of all the bugs and glitches.

I say the longer it takes for them to work on it...the less bugs and glitches there will be (hopefully!)...

But...I agree with you 100%. ALTHOUGH, it WOULD stink if it came out in 2009. 2007 is a LITTLE more bareable than 2009..but...that would mean I'd have to get the next-gen XBOX console. And the way I figure is... I already have the original XBOX (that cost over $100 --less than $200), why should I have to use another almost $200 to buy ANOTHER Xbox.

^ The only good thing is..the next-gen XBOX will be able to play games from the ORIGINAL Xbox! (that means...the games I have NOW..won't go to waste! -----Although...I'd have to start all my games over from scratch...UNLESS Microsoft® develops a way to transfer game information and soundtracks on your XBOX hardrive over to the hardrive for the Xbox360 <--that would be a REALLY.NICE.FEATURE (anyone agree with me??).).

That's my $0.02

Interesting...

The_Maker 10-25-2005 04:36 PM

Hmmmm...
I still dont believe it, if it becomes official then I will agree that its real but until then I think its just another hoaksy piece of inoformation

Oh how I want the news to be true =(

IndianaSolo 10-25-2005 05:19 PM

Not to be negative, but that post was made by a user. It has (as far as I saw by browsing the link) no factual or even evidence to back it up. It's just some random person posting something.

spinkle 10-25-2005 06:01 PM

how many of the games on that list *have* been confirmed? i don't have or want an xbox/360 so i'm not exactly up on news regarding its [potential] libaray.

Ztalker 10-26-2005 07:25 AM

I don't wanna confirm or prove anything, but i read a very high qualified Games magazine, the Power Unlimited.

They have confirmed most of the games in the list:
-Pro Evo 6: They (PU) have tested pro evo 5, and the producer said they where making another one, to counter the improving Fifa.
-Half Life 3: We will get Aftermath. But EA bought Valve, and knowing EA...they will make a Half Life 2006/2007 and a Hl-Undergound (just kiddin)
-UT 2007: Already confirmed, and well under way
-Ninja Gaiden 2: Seen something of it...supposed to be X-Box 360 game
-Halo 3: Bungee didn't show it (yet), so it will be a X-Box 360 launchgame
-GTA 6: Rockstar licensed some names, the list was published in the Power Unlimited, there where about 6-7 of them.

This might be a little off-topic, but all i want to say is:
The list is relatively good, in my opinion.

I woudn't be surprised if K3 is made in secret, so Uncle Bill has a secret weapon if the PS3 or the Revolution would do better than the X-360.

Not really sure I'd call K3 a "secret weapon". Compared to games like Halo and GTA it isn't a big seller, so it's not like it'll be that spectacular, break through title that will swing the tide in the Xbox360's favor. In terms of the video game market, I'd say Kotor is a niche game. Certainly not the kind that would warrant being kept secret to unveil at an opportune time to the public to help console sales.

P.S. Woot! Fable 2! :D

IndianaSolo 10-27-2005 04:46 PM

What I find a bit hard to believe is they list K3 out in the open, but BioWare's as a "secret Bioware game" even though they've announced Mass Effect already.
