I want to click on answer three, I really do, but my inner cynic in preventing me, saying "#4, #4". *sigh*

I'm content with what we've been given as far as the stories from KOTOR I & II. If a third installment never sees the light of day, then it might come out in comic form.

Yeah, I've come to that point where I could really care less right about now. I'll just move on to other things...

GL has a big company. Even if he is working on "the next 3 movies" its not like thats all that they're doing.
It took 10 years for Starcraft 2 to be released, and all Blizzard does is games.

Its been a little more than 3 years since TSL was released where I am. Pateince is a virture. At 5, with no word, i'll start giving up hope. The nets definatley buzzing with KoTOR, I wouldn't be to sure about "It will be finished in a comic." or "It will never happen." quite yet.

Most ppl can agree that TSL wasn't what everyone had hoped for. I would assume that LA wasn't about to jump into KoTOR 3 head-on like they did with TSL.
They're taking their sweet time, and im fine with that. I've got plenty of games to play while I wait.

TSL was rushed into production, and I think that Obsidian made some cuts to the content, to try to save time in releasing TSL. And I think the storyline, and some game features, suffered because of the rush of getting TSL out.

Of course with the boxed set of the 6 Star Wars movies coming out, fairly soon, if not already out, then the next movie being worked on, as well, there is the possibility that since LA is putting out several games, with Battlefront 3 in the forefront, along with the new Indiana Jones movie, that the next KOTOR and movie aren't too far into the future.


When everything else fails, CHEAT!

Movies and games have their own production companies: "LucasArts" for games and "Lucasfilms" for movies. Aside from writing the stories for movies/tv series', Lucas himself is just an exec. producer.

So as far as Lucasarts, they are either discussing in a group, not dealing with it, or by hopes have a small table of writers and such over in the back corner that no one pays attention to. In any case, I'm not worried about the future of KOTOR. I'm more into the KNOWN future right now, like F.U. and the upcoming tv series.

I guess i have given up for Kotor 3 (although it pains me to say it), but imo it has just taken too long. I think if Lucasarts were actually making it, it would have come out already.

True. What has it been, 4 or 5 years since KotOR II? I guess that we can still have hope....

TSL came out in Dec. of '04 for Xbox, and Feb. of '05 for PC, so 3-3.5 years ago.

I guess I just want to point out that development cycles for games have lengthened. A typical RPG will take around 3 years to develop. So if LucasArts had someone working on KotOR 3 starting immediately after KotOR 2's release then it would have been reasonable to expect KotOR 3 at the end of 2007, beginning of 2008. Granted, we are past that point in time now but we're not that far past what would have been the earliest expected timeframe to see KotOR 3.

Good point. I just have a feeling they havent been working on a new kotor at all, thats what I was trying to say.

Wow, I voted in this a long time ago it seems. Um, I'd like to change my answer. I voted for LucasArts making a third installment, but now I'm thinking that's likely not to happen, and that Dark Horse will continue the story.

But then again, there were four years between Jedi Knight and Jedi Outcast, so you never know.

Five. Well, the PC version was released about six months earlier than the Xbox and Mac versions, so 4.5-5.

I am hoping for an extensive novel series of "Knights of the Old Republic". I just do not want the NJO team to make it. Grrr...

When it comes to a third game, I don't think there will be a stand alone "KotOR" game. If the gossip becomes truth, I wouldn't want to play a MMORPG of "KotOR". I just don't see the logic behind those types of RPGs. I like to have my own story.

The logic is companies making lots of $$$. Yeah yeah, I'm sure lots of people are saying, "I'll NEVER play a KotOR MMORPG", but I know they'd suck a number of you in, even with the monthly fees and all, because many people just wouldn't be able to resist.

I resisted "Star Wars: Gallaxies". I allways felt that paying multiple times for a game is illogical. After I get home from buying a RPG, I want to open the box, install the game, and just jump into the story. I don't want to pay more, nor do I want to join in a group RPG. I just plainly don't like them. There are two other MMORPGs coming out soon, by big franchises, and I am not going to become a member of those either. Its just me.

Not saying they'd get you personally, but I'm more than positive that many of you that have said you'd never give in to buying a KotOR MMORPG most certainly would at some point.

Well, If they won't announce a K3 in this year, the community and the future communities of modders will make a K3 outta K2. That is something that I am sure it will eventually happen. The modding has become a very known and utilized hobby. Plus there has been made some great breakthus in the modding.
Anyway, this type of projects have already been started. The most recent example is the mod "Revenge of Revan".

In order of probability, 2, 3, 4, 1. I doubt LucasArts really cares about the KotoR series anymore, and if LucasArts doesn't care, Lucas in general doesn't care, and if Lucas in general doesn't care about the plotline, it's going to become an MMO or a comic.

MMOs are not about plotline at all. They are about making money and attempt to be appealing to gamers. I don't believe that is the Kotor 3 we want

Well if that's true that means that they must have been working on the MMO since then.

Obviously not. Still, I can't help but fear for a sequel.
