    Gaming journalist Liam Robertson recently made some really interesting comments on his Patreon page. According to him, EA’s BioWare Austin is currently in the process of “prototyping” a new Knights Of The Old Republic game. Robertson didn't quote any sources on this information, but the story is very interesting nonetheless, matching with previous reports. Read on for the details.







    Here's what Robertson said during a podcast (via SWGameOutpost):





    Why reboot, one might ask? The answer will probably excite fans of the Disney-established canon:

    What's also interesting is that Drew Karpyshyn, who made the original KOTOR and worked on the MMORPG TOR, is currently working on a project that he's keeping hush-hush on. Coincidence? Perhaps not!










    Cinelinx's Jordan Maison previously noted that a remake/reboot was in the works at one point, but was frozen for a while to focus development on other projects. While little else has come of anything related to KOTOR (and not TOR, its spiritual successor), there's a chance that the time for a revival to the franchise will be coming... Eventually. As it stands, we have no idea what's in store for the Old Republic era as a whole. I've felt that as long as BioWare continues development on TOR, we're not going to see any canon explanation of what happened in that era aside from the hints and occasional flashbacks in other works. If this project is indeed in development, then perhaps this will be our first full gateway of Old Republic Era content in the continuity.

    Nice! I'm excited to see a new canon-version of KOTOR. Hope we get some novels and a movie too!

    I love this era and all-but patiently wait for the day when the story of Revan becomes canon (even if they change it up a bunch).

    Please please make it happen. I've rekindled with my first female sw character crush since I got back into the Old Republic lore surrounding Kotor and SWTOR. Bastila Shan. <3

    This is something that has been worked on off and on for almost a decade. LFL and Disney know how popular this franchis is with starwars fans and it is going to get done. A childhood friend worked for Bioware Austin not too long ago so from the conversations I have had with him I am very hopeful that this is in development and that it's going to be great.
