Brah! I’m a HUGE Star Wars fan, as in I’ll probably shed a fanboy tear or two when the The Last Jedi trailer hits this week. One of my all-time favorite Star Wars AND OG Xbox games is Bioware’s Knights of the Old Republic. Great news, Brah! Looks like we might be getting a KOTOR reboot!
Liam Robertson has made a name for himself by leaking all kinds of juicy gaming news. His latest leak is KOTOR-riffic!
I’ve learned now that [BioWare Austin is] pretty much now exclusively working on Star Wars games and they’re going to be doing that for the indefinite future. What they’re currently working on right now—and I have this on good authority—is a sort of remake/revival of Knights of the Old Republic. I don’t know when this is set to come out, but it has been in development for a little while now. I don’t really know how that game’ll end up. I’ve heard that it isn’t exactly a remake anymore, but it started as a remake/revival. Now it’s kind of going from that blueprint in sort of its own original thing. I guess we’ll see what that turns out to be, but they are prototyping it right now.
So why a reboot? Weeellll Disney kinda went in and made most of the canon outside the main films into the Expanded universe, which didn’t make fans too happy, but if we get a whole new KOTOR out of this, the Brah will be happy.
I think this is sort of like wiping the slate clean… I think this is going to embrace the new Star Wars universe lore because Knights of the Old Republic was sort of just pushed into the expanded universe, the Legends canon of Star Wars.
Are you Brahs ready for a new KOTOR?!
