Angry Kotor 3 canceled?

I would like to thing this is a foolīs day preview, but, when I entered starwarsknights this afternoon I found that bioware has declared canceled K3. Now, breathe and:

Could anyone tell us if itīs true?
If itīs true what are we going to do?
What is bioware thinking?
Could anyother company develop it?
Have we been forgoten?
Do we deserve this?

I hope itīs not true, I hope itīs just a rumor someone has pushed into the internet.

Anyway, this is my anger:

And this is what we should do:


"Revenge is never a straight line. It's a forest. And like a forest it's easy to lose your way to get lost When engaged in combat, the vanquishing of thine enemy can be the warrior's only concern. This is the first and cardinal rule of combat. Suppress all human emotion and compassion. Kill whoever stands in thy way, even if that be Lord God, or Buddha himself..."

It appears they were secretly working on it and just didn't have it announced.

BioWare has always stated that they were working on two next-gen games: Mass Effect and another unannounced one. Guess we know know that the other game used to be

All members of the KotOR 3 team have been integrated into other development teams both in BioWare’s Edmonton Studio, as well as the newly-founded Austin, Texas Studio. BioWare has recently announced that its Austin Studio has already begun work on an unannounced Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game.
SWG is based in Austin.

Quote:
One of the most successful Star Wars games of all time is heading to the next generation courtesy of Obsidian. The third installment of the series will expand on the somewhat lackluster second title and once again be exclusive to Microsoft. We've heard that Bioware has had very little involvement with the third title, but Obsidian has been clearly instructed to take their time and pump out a game that rivals the original in quality.

@Dark Woman: hope you are right.
@Meatbag: As is posted in the thread "More KOTOR III Possibilty News! " in pages 4 to 5 they say that Obsidian wasnīt still working in K3. I hope the new itīs a fake and I hope Iīm wrong starting this thread. The only thing I can say is that I hope you are right.

If any of you knows whatīs being on with all this, Iīd like you to tell it to all of as. Thanks!!

C'mon people, don't let your fear overcome you! -

this is blatantly an April Fools joke (and a very unimaginative one IMO), so much so, that I don't even feel the need to research this at all...

Really though, poor show StarWarKnights...poor show...

Lucasarts would be out of their minds not to make a kotor III, especially since it has such a huge fan base. Even if bioware decided not to work on it doesnt mean lucasarts wouldn't give the job to another developer. (Or It is just a sick april fools joke)

The KotOR games have made LA huge profits. They'd be fools to not make a third one. And is it a coincidence that this was anounced April first?

Technically Com Raven announced it March 31 2006 -- Yesterday. Of course CR is rarely hanging around us Kotor Fanatics so by default that raises the instant red flag of Fraud.


Then of course the usage of Bioware as the guinne pig which is of course another laugh.

So for those with fears don't be. For those who feel the need to nitpick don't bother if it's not a LA announcement then it isn't worthwhile. For those who think last years was better I agree.


Working so, we will learn history as a tree knows it; we will climb into shapes printed in the seed; we will become time made visible, years made fragrant; we will make of concentric memory a stem of praise; we will inhabit daylight at a trees own speed; we will be travelers who remain, patriots to this ground.

i looked on other websites,

i.e gamespot, they said nothing of it. so if there is only one site that said something about it around April Fool's Day. I'm not saying its a joke, could be a coincidence, but im skeptical about how much truth, if any is to this whole thing.

at the moment id say its an April Fools Joke.

and why would they cancel it when it was never officially announced?????
there were rumors of its making but there was no official annoucment from Lucas arts, Bioware, or Obsidian. so they wouldnt cancel it if there was no official announcement saying it was in development.... just a thought.

If this announcement came like a month or two later, then that would make an impact. But it's obviously an April Fools Day joke. The game needs to be announced and in the making before it can be announced as cancelled. It was a just a gag to rev up us hardcore KOTOR fans.

I guess it was an announced shutdown of a previously unannounced project. Bioware never really gave it a chance.

Stan: "Look! They killed KotOR!"
Kyle: "Those b******s!"

RIP KotOR 3. The good times we would have had now will never be. We'll miss you...

Microsoft for example has admitted a few years ago that they cancel about 60% of their games in development before they are ever announced. Just like Baldur's Gate 3: The Black Hound and Fallout 3 were never announced, but still died.

Yeah guys, sorry if it wasn't as funny as last year^^

But what can I say, there are only so many things you can do with a single-player only rpg franchise that has officially no sequel in development^^

Quick April 1st history:
2003 - KotoR on the PC was cancelled
2004 - KotOR II: TSL was announced (you have to appreciate how close we came to the truth with that joke^^)
2005 - the modding boards had to be shut

so for 2006, we had the options of cancelling the game, or announcing KotOR 3. Seeing how the last April Fool's cancelation has been 3 years ago, we went with that
