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.

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.

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.

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.

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*

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.

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!!

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

11-09-2005, 05:34 PM
I'd agree, its just a question of who will make it and when it will be out. Both Kotor games sold a lot of copies so if just for the money, they will make it, no doubt. That list for 2006/7 seems a bit odd though ... GTA 6? The next GTA will be GTA 4 since GTA 3 (Liberty City) was also some sort of a trilogy start that found its conclusion in GTA San Andreas. So despite Vice City being "technically" GTA 4 and SA being GTA 5, that is actually not the case. Oh well, they prolly just did the number game... GTA is THE perfect example for an ongoing franchise though, which I believe Kotor will be too. I'd say we will see more than just one Kotor game in the next couple years.

UPDATED 15TH NOVEMBER 2005

Hello I was just browsing Obsisidian and I came across this. thought you might like to read this:


More KOTOR III hints? here you go...


But while Obsidian is hard at work trying to finish up Neverwinter Nights 2 for a summer release, they're also hard at work on another unannounced project. All we have at the moment is speculation based off of some concept art of dwarves resembling those popularized by Snow White but we do know is that this new game will use Unreal Engine 3. Urquhart also mentioned their desire to do a Knights of the Old Republic 3 should LucasArts desire it in the future. I'd be surprised if they didn't.

While this isn't directly related to KotOR 3 news it is related to the current state of LucasArts. I found this info on LucasArts while perusing an MSNBC article about games being released for the Xbox 360...
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/10033500/

Good news that LucasArts is doing better since their management shakeup. Unfortunately it only mentions something about an Indiana Jones game being released in 2007. I couldn't care less about that.

But... they have been hiring 200 developers, engineers, and animators for work on games for the new generation of consoles coming out starting with the XBox 360. Hopefully that means that KotOR 3 will be factored in there somewhere. But I'm left wondering that if they move forward with producing KotOR 3 are they going to use an outside developer like Obsidian or will they do it in-house? And if MacLeodCorp's posted link to the GameBanshee forums posting is accurate then Obsidian hasn't even been contacted about doing KotOR 3.

"As a leading representative of BioWare Corp. given the mamoth task of publicising the next in the series of Knights Of The Old Republic games (KOTOR 3), I have permission to confirm that this title is now several months underway.

This may come as a surprise to those who are currently reading this, as it was previously believed that the KOTOR staff had been cut from the LucasArts project. I can also confirm that the KOTOR 3 team is now officially on LucasArts budget and eagerly developing what we hope to be a 'must have' title on as of yet unconfirmed Next Generation platforms for 2006.

With more details to be released in the coming weeks, 3 points concerning KOTOR 3 can be posted:

1)The story takes place in a period roughly 14 years after KOTOR 2: The Sith Lords.

2)There will be new characters, equipment, classes, mini games and an entirely new combat system based on the interface used on Jade Empire.

3)The plot follows directly from the last game, plunging the galaxy into war with the True Sith.

This has yet to be posted onto the BioWare official website (www.bioware.com) as the pages are currently serving as a front to keep viewers occupied during a drastic remodelling process of the entire site.

As previously stated, this message is soon to be posted around the internet, and new details are to be released soon.

George and crew are most pleased with the initial performance of KOTOR, so pleased in fact that KOTOR 3 is well into development! This time however expect everything to be new and improved! An all new next-gen engine is being prepped as is a modified battle system that will place a heavier emphasis on the lightsaber. There are even whispers that the game may be shown in some form at E3 THIS year, though I’d expect it to be far from completion, perhaps nothing but a video!

More KOTOR III Talk?

I hope you guys don't mind me posting more KOTOR III stuff I just can't help it . OKay I was just browsing www.teamxbox.com and it just very briefly said something about Star Wars KOTOR sequel. I'm not sure if they mean't KOTOR II or not but I think they are more likely refering to KOTOR III. But any way take a lookie for you self.


Xbox360 In Bad Need Of RPG's

We know that sometime in the future, the Xbox 360 will have RPGs like Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Mass Effect, Jade Empire sequel, Fable sequel, Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic sequel and the like. But Microsoft should not give up getting established RPG franchises and if they have to make big deals with the respective owners of them, then they should go for it!


Linkie: http://community.teamxbox.com/xbox/1369/TXB-Community-The-Need-of-RPGs-on-the-Xbox-360/p1/

I play xbox, and am going to buy the 360, but i'm not buying till KoTOR III comes out.... KOTOR was the reason I bought XBox in the first place.

Sorry, but I disagree. It is true that console games sell more, but it is also true that in a business, you move as much of your product as you can, because this means more $$$ for your company.

While the PC market is not as lucrative as the console market, its still large enough that LA is going to want to get what money they can from it.

alright, sorry... when i said "exclusive" I was making a referance between the two XBox systems. he will with no doubt make the game for PC (not that it matters to me, I'm not going to waste money buying it for a system and for the PC... did that with the first game). But I doubt Lucas Arts will bother with a version for the XBox when the finished product wont be out for most likely a year or more. The more time goes by, the more the 360 is going to push the original XBox out.

IMO, this has already happened. I would be highly surprised if any game publisher/creator released a game for the XBOX now. I think we will only see XBOX 360 games going forward. Seriously, why would anyone make a game for a now-defunct console?

$200.00 for a 360?? your very wrong... the core system ( that is basicly just the box and a controller) goes for 399.... the Premium, or platinum is going for over 600....

I got hooked up on mine (a platinum system), and sold it on ebay for $1,300.

I was just surfing another Kotor fourm and this person *claims* Kotor III is anounced but I just take it as a rumour. Have a look for yourself any way.

Just take this as a rumour because I can't see any offical source from Lucasarts.

This person claims:

Kotor III Rumour

Kotor 3 Rumors: Well its true! There are announcements from lucas arts of a new knights of the old republic game. They are already at a finish for the game and is planning for a release in 2006. It will hit the new big X Box 360 with all the new amazing graphics. You will be able to have more features in the game as such as ruling your own empire. More Kotor 3 games news will be announced whenever Lucas Arts does.

Dear ilwugoalie,


Let me point out a few things reguarding to your pevious post. Firstly I do NOT have a BIG ego. Secondly I am giving everyone plenty of oppertunity to get credit to find Kotor III rumours news and speculations. I am just sharing in what I mind what other people say about Kotor III. If you want to find Kotor III news for yourself and want to take the credit for it by no means do so. I am a sharing person and like to share what I find with other Kotor fans. If you have a problem with this please don't bother looking at the Kotor III news.

LucasArts: KOTOR 3, Mercenaries 2
LucasArts' recent silence by no means equals inactivity. On the contrary, Knights of the Old Republic 3, in development with Obsidian Development, is in the early stages of creation for a late 2006 -- most likely a 2007 -- release. The game should feature more seamless interaction between NPCs and the lead character, as well as better, more economic interactions between party members. We predict the combat system will go entirely realtime, as opposed to partially realtime (the way it was in KOTOR 1 and 2), and RPG fans will be able to enjoy more distinct shades of gray recognized by characters instead of the black and white distinctions made in the first two iterations of the series.

If that entire prediction is true then:

Oh! UH! HUHUHUHU! RPG fans are going to be so mad. I can only imagine the look on their faces.( They go :eek: )

The big American console manufacturer published Conker: Live and Reloaded, Fantagram's Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes, and snuck out Fable: The Lost Adventures for a bargain price in fall 2005. Microsoft Game Studios made the full transition to Xbox 360 and it's not looking back.

Kookaburra, why did you delete that little part?

Now, onto what the real article said, it is all speculation, and predicitions. Why would they change the system? In fact, the only 'proof' they offered was artwork from KOTOR 2. If they prove that K2 is being made, I won't trust them with this 'prediction' about a combat system change.

Best comparison I can think of (at least for real-time combat) is Morrowind vs TSL..

In Morrowind, when you encounter/engage in combat.. there is no "pausing" and thinking about strategy.. it's a "you better hope you either have quick fingers, proper hot keys, etc.. OR you can run like a mother.." Granted, you can still "switch" your inventory, but there are games out there that don't even allow this. Also, in Morrowind, in order to combat (swing weapon, throw, pull bowstring), something has to be "pressed" per action (ie, button-mashing)

TSL being turn based allows you to "pause", que actions for the entire party then resume based on your choices... no pressing buttons to swing, block etc. No strafing controls, no nothing.. it's all based on a die system where your skills and abilities adjust your "roll" to determine effectiveness and success/fail.

I can only imagine the horror of a real-time scenario with more than one Party Member (excluding the fact that until stoffe fixed it, Pary AI sucked)...

If KotOR III is to be a "true" real-time combat game, it's going to become more of a button-mashing nightmare rather than a storyline driven RPG (IMO) ;)

I prefer the KOTOR style than Morrowind style. IMO, RPG combat is about strategy (albeit KOTOR's combat was a little too easy to have to worry about strategy), and if you go to full real time there's no chance for real strategy.

Kotor III speculation on knights.com????

posted by Com Raven on main page.


So, you read the bit below about Obsidian Entertainment doing a pure action-combat KotOR 3? Laughed about how crazy that ideas sounds? Alright, then you might be prepared to read this ;)

It seems that Obsidian is hiring a Audio Programmer for an unannounced game. Not too exciting in itself.

It gets more interesting once you look at the details:
Audio Programmer - PS3, XBOX 360, PC
Unannounced - 3rd Person, ACTION, RPG

So, a few days after IGN (who are despite some occasional wacky predictions still a great source for gaming news) proclaims a Xbox360 action-based KotOR 3, we find that Obsidian (the most likely candidate for KotOR 3 since BioWare is busy with its own IPs) is working on an action rpg for the 360, PC (a sure bet for any future KotORs) and the PS3 (with the PS3 having a HDD this time around, a port seems likely).

Feel free to draw your own conclusions, and to discuss them along with the rest of the community on our KotOR III Boards.



Feel free to disagree or agree. :) total speculation.

another interesting thing??? Kotor 3 ?????? (Just a guess)

Okay Ladies and Gents,

again I have found some more Kotor III rumour/speculation, read this:

Obsidian Working On Next-gen KOTR 3?
According to various reports, Obsidian Entertainment - developing house of Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords - is currently working on an Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game. Although the actual title hasn't been revealed, chances are at least reasonable that it's the third Star Wars game in the Knights of the Old Republic series, currently labeled KOTR 3. We'll keep you updated if Obsidian makes any official comments.

January 17, 2006 - Obsidian Entertainment is currently working on three unannounced role-playing games, according to job listing site Creative Heads.



Comprised of former several Black Isle and BioWare creators, Obsidian appears to be expanding with work expressly for next-generation and PC platforms. One game, listed as a third-person action-RPG for Xbox 360 and PS3, is possibly the third in the Knights of the Old Republic series. Neither LucasArts nor Obsidian would confirm a renewal of their work done on Knights of the Old Republic: The Sith Lords. According to a source close to the development team, Obsidian may not have sealed the deal yet for KOTOR 3.

The second role-playing game listed (Obsidian is looking for an entry-level programmer for this title) is an RPG slated for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. This second RPG is an original intellectual property called Project New Jersey and uses the Unreal 3 Engine, according to Obsidian employees. Along with job postings for Neverwinter Knights 2 (announced in August 2004), Obsidian is also creating an adventure-RPG for Xbox 360 and PS3 (for which it's in search of a senior graphics programmer).

In addition to the Creative Heads listing is Obsidian's own job listings.

Well, I'm enjoying the anticipation and reading all the news bits posted here. Of course, I'd like it even better if there was a definitive announcement. I'm betting Kookaburra will get the scoop on any official news, too, with her quick research. :)

Hi


I did some more digging and I found this, its a few weeks old but it keep you reading until hopefully something else offical comes up.

Of course take this as another speculation. :)


Silence doesn't always mean inaction. LucasArts is reportedly working quietly on two big name sequels expected late 2006 or early 2007. No major announcements have been made, but IGN has done some digging and turned up some info.




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


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

IGN has learned that LucasArts recent silence does not mean inactivity. Infact IGN revealed that LucasArts is infact working on a sequel to the surprise hit Mercenaries for Xbox 360 and PS3.

Also quietly in development is KOTOR 3, with the team at Obsedian still behind the game early news is that players can expect better interaction between NPCs and the main character, also IGN said to expect the fighting system to be completely real time. What is not known at the time is which platform KOTOR 3 will land on, one can hope that Obsedian would make the next gen jump.

We'll bring you more information on Mercenaries 2 and KOTOR 3 as it becomes available.

It will more than likely be similar in playability to Jade Empire.
That is one interesting RPG with great graphical content, cut scenes and realtime fighting. I hate to say it, but I really did enjoy playing that one.

That game proves it can work. As much as I enjoy the turn based battling and contemplative strategy, I just have a feeling they're going to move in this direction.

Before, I've stated that KotOR should stay turned based, but, since my foray into Ancient China...

Well, guess what? I found more Kotor III rumor news on the LucasArts Forums (YAY about time) Look at this:



The third chapter in LucasArts' RPG exploration of the Star Wars legacy.

NOTE: This game has not yet been announced or officially confirmed by the publisher. Exact plans for which platforms this title might release on are also unconfimed at this time. Unofficially, the game is expected to be one of three next-gen projects in the works at developer Obsidian Entertainment.

Hmmm.
Do you think they are aiming for a Christmas-surprise release, and they just didn't anounce it yet because they didn't want to put pressure on the developer like they did with Kotor2?
If so, this will be a very, very cool Q4...Spore, UT2007, Kotor 3...

Remember how the TSL release got pushed up 2 months from February to December? If Obsidian didn't have any time to waste to make TSL's original release date they most certainly had even less when the release date got pushed up or in other words no time for interviews. So yeah, I think the guys at RPG Codex just made snide commentary about TSL's release date using KotOR 3 and at LucasArts expense. Just my interpretation though. :)

I agree that it was probably a joke, but I'll be very surprised if we don't hear a legitimate x-mas 2006 release date for K3 at E3.

1) I believe that OE completed at least a portion of the story of K3 while developing K2. One of the possible causes for some of the cut content would be inconsistencies with a third installment. Also, the story had quite a bit of blatant foreshadowing. Can't foreshadown when you don't know what's going to happen later.

2) I suspect that OE got further with the engine tweaks than we know. Of course, they had to back out of some of them due to time contstraints.

3) the timeline just makes sense. KotOR came out for xmas 2003. K2 came out for xmas 2004. Not wanting to rush things for what will probably be the third and final installment, they've decided to take their time and plan for xmas 2006. Releasing it any sooner or any later will cut into that golden window that is the american xmas holiday.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic III

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.

We don't expect Knights III to make an appearance at E3 2006, but the holiday season should bring around news on the next generation title. Expect it to pick up many years after Knights II with an entirely new cast of characters and even more force powers. Shifting your character between light and dark will also have a much more significant impact on the game.

If I may be the first to voice my disagreement. :D

I'm OK with an entirely new cast of characters with a story set many years after TSL but I want closure to the Revan/Exile/True Sith/Force Wound story that has been spun thus far. This doesn't mean I want all answers but enough to get at least some satisfaction from knowing the fate of Revan and the Exile to a large degree as well as what is going on with the "True Sith." Answers to the questions:
Why did Revan head off on his own to the Unknown Regions?
Why did the Exile decide to head off in search of Revan?
Do the "True Sith" still exist?
etc.

And since I am always right, that should end that debate right there. :)I wholehearted agree that we need a whole new cast of (non-droid:D) characters.

As for the force powers, I'm not sure how much more they can do. There are force powers created for TSL that I've never used. Not sure if adding more is really going to make things better. I wouldn't mind seeing some of the current powers rebalanced.

Definitely!!! HK and T3 are link to Revan and to what he found out about the sith. But i'd prefer cameos from older NPC's.

I agree with that too not all powers are used. Maybe add one force levitate where you can levitate things and throw at enemies just like any Jedi would do.

Prime
03-16-2006, 11:32 AM
I don't mind droid characters, particularly T3 and HK. I wouldn't mind them being back, or something similar.

I totally agree with the Force powers. There are too many, and several don't really reflect what we see in the films. I would rather that there be fewer powers, but those powers would have more application. For example, a power something like "move object" could be used to pick things up, flick a switch, or push. And perhaps there could be more than three levels for each.

On Obsidian's home page, they recently announced a partnership with SEGA to produce an origional next gen RPG. This means that either Obsidian is going to finish Neverwinter nights 2, while still working on KOTOR 3 AND start on this new project, (which is unlikely unless this is what they are hiring for, due to the small size of the company), or They are not going to be producing KOTOR 3.

FOR ALL YOU LAZY FOLKS, here is the announcement:
Deal Marks Another Milestone in Publisher's Western Growth Strategy

SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON (March 23, 2006) - SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe, Ltd. today announced a new partnership with Obsidian Entertainment, Inc., an entertainment software development studio based in Orange County, CA. Under the terms of the worldwide deal, SEGA and Obsidian will collaboratively develop an original role playing game (RPG) for PC, PlayStation®3 (PS3) and the Xbox 360™.

The deal signifies SEGA's continuing drive to produce high-quality Western content for current and next-generation consoles. Obsidian, best known for the hugely popular RPG Knights of the Old Republic™ 2: The Sith Lords, is also currently working on the much-anticipated sequel to Neverwinter Nights™.

"The development team at Obsidian has 'proven track record' stamped all over it," said Simon Jeffery, President and COO, SEGA of America, Inc. "When SEGA decided to create a fresh and captivating RPG franchise for new generations of hardware, we immediately knew who we wanted to work with."

"We are excited to be working with a great publisher like SEGA as they are willing and excited to launch new and visionary IP on next generation consoles," said Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment, Inc. "At Obsidian, our focus is to make exceptional games and we see SEGA as a true partner in achieving that goal for our next epic RPG."

The deal is the latest in a string of similar announcements from SEGA that underscore the company's increased emphasis on Western content development. Previously, SEGA announced partnerships with developers Secret Level, Silicon Knights, Bizarre Creations, Monolith Productions (Condemned: Criminal Origins™), and Pseudo Interactive (Full Auto™). SEGA also acquired development powerhouse The Creative Assembly (Total War series) in 2005.

Very interesting. Nice find, Mister Chief.

So what do we know then? Obsidian is developing Neverwinter Nights 2 and now they're going to be developing a new RP IP for Sega.

I don't know enough about video game development to know what can be inferred from the fact that Obsidian has two announced games they're working on now. What I do know is that Mr. Urquhart stated in an interview that he doesn't want Obsidian to grow into a big studio development house. If he holds to that then I think it unlikely Obsidian would be developing a third title at the same time as the other two. If the $ signs are looming large on his eyeballs though he may very well decide to expand Obsidian so they can take on simultaneous development of three titles. :giveup:

Obsidian's CEO said... (http://pc.ign.com/articles/684/684902p1.html)

Obsidian's currently staffing up. Feargus hopes to have over 100 people by the end of the year with an eventual goal of having around 120 to 140 people. That will allow them to have teams working on three different games. Ideally, one team will be working on the core concepts of a game while the other two will be in full production mode. Obsidian has also started a technology group that's working on a next generation engine that will be ready in 2007.
Obsidian Entertainment has 3 projects now.
- Neverwinter Nights 2 (Project Pennsylvania) in full production mode
- Project New Jersey: a new IP with an unannounced publisher, a next-gen console action RPG based on Unreal engine 3, in full production mode
- Project Georgia: a new IP with a publisher SEGA, in pre-production mode (working on core concepts)

btw, KotOR2's codename was 'Project Delaware'.



and LucasArts' E3 2006 plan (http://www.firingsquad.com/news/newsarticle.asp?searchid=9543)

New Indiana Jones Game To Be Shown At E3

LucasArts has sent out invites to press folks to show up at their E3 booth in May to try out their upcoming new games. One of the titles that they will show is their all new next-gen console Indiana Jones title which was first announced back in E3 2005 and will finally be shown for the first time in public at this year's expo. The press note also says that in addition to the Indy game and Lego Star Wars II, LucasArts will also be showing off "many other surprises that we'll unveil in the weeks leading up to E3"

Who can seriously believe that they are already working on Kotor3 anyway? Have a look at this article from february 18th:

http://pc.ign.com/articles/684/684902p1.html

It's stated out by OE's CEO that they hire people to become able to develop three games in parallel by the end of 2006. That means that by now they're capable to work on two games at a time and we already know that none of them is Kotor3. One is NWN2 and the other is OE's own thing and no franchise.

Yet still Obsidian is the logical choice to make Kotor3 and the graphics engine of NWN2 is the logical choice for Kotor3 (remember NWN, K1 and K2 share the same roleplaying engine and pretty much the same graphics engine). Let's have a look at NWN2: They got the renderer running for some time - the engine as whole should be done except minor detail work, it seems they got the creature modelling done so it is likely that they got the (N)PCs too, the screenshots on the official site show finished maps and it can't be long until they show the first trailers... I assume NWN2 is going to be published in the late 3rd or early 4th quarter 2006 and that's the time they can actually begin to work seriously on Kotor3 and/or the title they develop for SEGA.

I just have a hard time believing that LucasArts would wait that long. IMO if LA doesn't get KotOR 3 out by end of 2007 then they're really messed up in the collective head. Of course I'll probably still buy the next KotOR even if it does debut in 2008...

I still want to find out what Project New Jersey is before I will completely rule out it's potential to be the next KotOR. I know. Word on the street is that PNJ is an original IP title but there is always the potential for misinformation, a.k.a. propaganda.

Ok, MYSTERY solved thanks to Feargus [Urquhart]:

Q: Is the Sega game PNJ?

FU: Actually - just to be confusing. this one is PG (PG=Project Georgia). So, as stated in the IGN interview, PNJ & PG are likely console oriented. NWN2/PP is the PC team

and obsidian's games at wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obsidian_Entertainment
Obsidian Entertainment code-names its projects after a list of U.S. states by date of statehood.

Project Delaware - Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords (KotOR II), released in 2004 for Xbox and in 2005 for PC, is Obsidian's first production.

Project Pennsylvania - Neverwinter Nights 2 is currently in development.
Both are sequels to products originally engineered by BioWare.

There is also a game to be announced, codenamed "Project New Jersey", confirmed by Obsidian employee John Morgan not to be a sequel. Also by words of Urquhart, the company hopes to be around 115 employees by the end of 2006, forming in 2 and a half teams, who will be working on three projects simultaneously. Knights of the Old Republic III is also in the plans of the company, should LucasArts desire it in the future.

On March 23, 2006, Obsidian and Sega announced that they will co-develop a role-playing game (codename: "Project Georgia") based on a new intellectual property. It is currently slated for release on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.

Well guys OE has their hands full for probably the next three years. Games take like a year each to make?

@ dowon - Thanks for providing such detailed sources! :thumbsup:

That seems to pretty much squash the possibility of KotOR 3 being in any form of current development at Obsidian Entertainment. Oh well. :giveup:

So I see current possibilities as:
1) LucasArts has commissioned another developer for the next KotOR but hasn't announced it yet.
2) LucasArts hasn't commissioned a developer for the next KotOR.
3) LucasArts plans to develop the next KotOR in-house.
4) Obsidian Entertainment is developing the next KotOR but isn't saying that they are.

Hmmm... That really narrows it down, doesn't it? [/sarcasm] :roleyess:

Because it's not their choice. They said they would like to do it but it was always clear that NWN2 would come first.

Well guys OE has their hands full for probably the next three years.
Why? I believe NWN2 is getting into the final state of production soon and project NJ is in full production for some time now and maybe they show it at the E3. If they do it will likely be published before xmas or in the late 1st quarter 2007. I think it's not a tough prediction to say that both games that are in full production now will be published within one year and probably earlier.

Long time no talk, so I figure I'll throw my hat into the fire....we'll hear about Kotor 3 by Christmas, and it'll be out next Summer.
While I would appreciate that, my guess is more coservative: We'll hear about a new project for LA around september/october 2006, hear that it is in fact Kotor3 in 12 months from now and get it in the 4th quarter 2007.

Obsidian On Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 3
We'd be happy to do KOTOR3 if that's what LucasArts wants us to do...

Speaking to TVG about the in-development NeverWinter Nights 2, Obsidian's Feargus Urquhart was also happy to discuss with TVG the current "will it/won't it" situation surrounding LucasArts Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 3.

"We have been talking with LucasArts to do KOTOR3 since August 2004 and we hoped to do it since KOTOR2 was done. LucasArts is thinking what they want to do with it and we would happily make KOTOR3, if that's what LucasArts wants to do."

So it seems ideas are on the table, whether or not LucasArts will conclude this trilogy faster than they do with others, however, remains to be seen.

We'll have the full interview with Urquhart soon...

Bioware might do it after Mass Effect.
What? In like 3 or four years? Doubt it. You know Mass Effect is a trilogy right?. That and the fact Bioware dont want to work on anyones IP's except their own.

I wonder what Lucas Arts has to officially say. My reasoning is that there have been several rumors that Obsidian Ent. has been working on KotOR III for some time, and now Feargus Urquhart, the CEO of Obsidian Entertainment comes out and says they have been in talks since August 2004. I think there is a contradiction somewhere.

Some questions that come up:
1. Are they or are they not working on KIII?

2. How long have they 'been working' on KotOR III?

3. Why all the cloak and dagger? Why don't just tell everyone they have been working on KotOR III?

For a company that has been denying they are not in anyway connected to KotOR III, Obsidian has a intresting way of showing there is no connection.

Edit:
This could be Obsidian's way of trying to keep connected to the KotOR series. If you go to LucasArts.com, their Flash advertising no longer has KotOR II. KotOR II was removed from the Flash advertising about a week ago. Obsidian could be trying to keep the KotOR series going.

Therefore, I would take what Obsidian has to say about KotOR III as speculation. Until I hear something from Lucas Arts, I don't know what to believe.

Q: Also, staying on the subject of deals, has LucasArts approached you to develop Knights of the Old Republic III?

Feargus Urquhart: We have been in talks with LucasArts to do KOTOR3 since August 2004 and we'd had hopes to start on it after KOTOR2. LucasArts are currently thinking about it, but we'd be really happy to do KOTOR3 if that's what LucasArts wants.

Q: But nothing's been set in stone?

Feargus Urquhart: No.

I found this

In an interview, Bioware gave a few details about their new project that, according to them, will certainly rattle-up the market the way their past games did like Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights. Gamers will have to wait till E3 though for more information regarding this game. Here's an excerpt of the interview:

FiringSquad: What other hints can you give us about upcoming projects at BioWare?
Ray Muzyka: We’re looking forward to announcing details about our new MMO being developed in BioWare Austin in the near future. We also have an unannounced surprise or two in the works which we will also be sharing at E3 2006, in addition to showing Mass Effect there. The Dragon Age team is hard at work and we’re very excited about how the game is looking so far.

What could this game be? Another KOTOR game perhaps? Since Ray Muzyka is a KOTOR developer, this title could be another Star Wars installment; however, LucasArts doesn't seem to be too keen with the idea of developing KOTOR3. Another guess would be a Jade Empire MMO since the first game had tremendous impact. PC users still demand a PC version of Jade Empire. I also like to see a new preview of their upcoming original fantasy role-playing game, Dragon Age. Now E3 is getting hotter and hotter with these kinds of annoucements popping up.

"As a leading representative of Bioware Corp. given the mamoth task of publicising the next in the series of Knights Of The Old Republic games (KOTOR 3), I have permission to confirm that this title is now several months underway.

This may come as a surprise to those who are currently reading this, as it was previously believed that the KOTOR staff had been cut from the LucasArts project. I can also confirm that the KOTOR 3 team is now officially on LucasArts budget and eagerly developing what we hope to be a 'must have' title on as of yet unconfirmed Next Generation platforms for 2006.

______________________________________
Bioware has something up their sleeves

Is Bioware Canadian? Yes, we were shocked too, but that isn't the big news. The fact that Bioware has some surprises waiting for us at the E3* (* personal note: It's written as statement!), and will reveal them to us, is!

Other then the announced Mass Effect and Dragon Age, Bioware has confirmed to be working on TWO other games! What kind of games? We will have to wait until the E3.

So let's speculate a bit. Bioware has already released certain information regarding a mmo they are making. Because if you don't hype, the big kids will start bullying you at school* (personal sneer from the writer of the article to hyping. He hates it). So be it. We don't get shocked from mmo's anymore, but this game could be on of the two above mentioned. After several hours of calculating, you will realise that there's one space left. Maybe Jade Empire 2? Or is Bioware picking up the Kotor franchise again? Maybe they will leap back in time and revive Baldurs Gate? No probably...maybe they....would they...

_____________________________
These guys are never of. Never. They have exclusive deals with developers, and their facts are always bound to be true. For example: in one of the old magazines, it was mentioned that Nintendo was experimenting with touch-screen technology. The DS wasn't even developed. And what do we have now? A touch-screen handheld.
I;m not trying to brag, or impress. But if these guy publish facts, they are true.

Why i posted this? Simple: Now there is an actual CHANCE k3 will appear on E3.

Now, I don't know what tha h**k Tim Ward ( if I'm not wrong about that name, president of Lucas Arts I refere) or ony of those leading guys out there at LA was/were thinking about, but hey it's their intetion or something......
ALL I'm afraid is that this is going to push KOTORIII way further away from US, maan i'd rarher see kotorIII a.s.a.p. then any other LA game for shore.
So what we now is Indiana Jones and Darth Vader game being developed. It is bad, and I don't think that they have enough money nor time to push for KOTORIII development as whell for now, That Ward guy was saying something about rebudgeting LA for whatever reasons, before we had news like poople being laid off at LA, etc, etc....

This was in the upcoming projects section
E 3 EXPO 2006
E3 is rapidly approaching again and Lucasarts have informed us that this years booth will be their biggest ever. Although no other announcements have been made as to what will be there, you can expect to see Star Wars Galaxies, Lego Star Wars 2, Indy Jones and we've been told of something extremely exciting that will be making its debut - we can't wait! As you'd expect, guys from the Network will be there taking some photos for the June edition.

and this one . There is a link at the starwarsknights page if you want to see for yourself

Gamedaily has posted a feature called "The Unofficial Five of Next Gen", looking at some sequels we all know will be coming sonner than later. And among such high-profile franchises as Halo, GTA, Final Fantasy and Mario, we find their take on Knights of the Old Republic 3: "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. We don't expect Knights III to make an appearance at E3 2006, but the holiday season should bring around news on the next generation title. Expect it to pick up many years after Knights II with an entirely new cast of characters and even more force powers. Shifting your character between light and dark will also have a much more significant impact on the game."

I have a bad feeling that the "Big Suprise" is that Darth Vader game :firemad:

I so agree with you Raven! I think its rediculous of LucasArts to make another Darth Vader game personally. I mean will this game be a hit like KOTOR? lol maybe not. I am kinda crapped off with LucasArts at teh moment, they just don't seem to be doing any thing or listening to what Star Wars fans want in video gaming. I mean the devs or people at LucasArts have probably gone around on all the gaming threads and read what the fans want and they have probably seen Kotor III , but LucasArts just don't seem to still get he message that people want KOTOR III. As much a I love Episode III, I don't really want another movie game at this stage. I want what Raven wants! ancient Jedi Masters! and Sith Lords. Kotor series b***dy well needs to be finished! Obsidian needs to get onto LucasArts back and tell them! If I found out LucasArts e-mail address I tell ya I would b***dy swamp them with e-mail to do Kotor III, and I am b***dy sure other people would agree with me.

LucasArts is blatently exploiting the franchise. LA dosnt care about SW game fans, they care about SW fans and general gamers. It is simply a question that Darth Vader Sells. More people would buy a game called "Darth Vader" than "KotOR III". Its simple for them, they only factor in the money, not the fans request. Maybe after they have abused the franchise by releasing "Darth Vader 9, the final trillogy", then maybe they will go back to making imaginative games. My favourite aspect of Kotor is that it is a SW game that is completely independant of the movies. Shame most people only care about Luke and Vader.

Agreed! Just look at all those games came out from SW movies (all except Jedi Knight series), those are axploited to the maximum. And I understand once new technology features come out (hardware, new engines, etc) they automaticly going for it, but with what? With Empire at war for instance, dude i have studied Force commander and I loved it much more than Empire at war, EAW got me bored with in couple of levels, complete waste of money and time, and I fully regret it. But that's just me.

KOTOR franchise is not finished with KOTORII, I don't think so, defenetly!
For what I can say: since we had gone through KOTOR I & II and to aprehend this time without any possible info (rumors avoided) about next KOTOR at least what we deserve is something official from LA, what is going on with KOTOR franchise?! HEy, for the sake of all these gamers that like the game. Just to let us know next kotor: yes or no. I'll take either answer, but I'd rather prefer yes!

Absolutely! LA can't possibly believe that TSL was a proper ending to the KOTOR series. And assuming that LA in some capacity is aware of the fan support for the KOTOR series, they should at least issue a statement saying they won't be making a third installment. I also agree that Lucas is just whoring-out the movie trillogies while a great new franchise is just waiting to be exploited. Come on LA, Just tell us Yes or No!!!!

Time to put a different spin on this. The Darth vader game wouldn't be so bad if done right. Say Like the jedi knight series. Now...now if lucasarts was absolutely sure they were not going to have a K3 game they would have said so and put us all out of our misery. The idea, even if it is not announced at E3 still floats in the air and has not been shot down I might add. We just have to keep going and hoping. Truthfully if the game came out five years from now I would be happy. I would be pretty pissed off that it took so long but It would be there right? yeah.

Now on another note when I get a job in the entertainment industry you can bet I will make a K3 game myself for all the fans who loved and lost.

Hi Everyone



I have a link to Feargus Urquhart's profile at Obsidian, from here you can PM him and perhaps ask him about Kotor III. I did.


Have a go, and see if you get a response. If you don't, least you tried. Maybe with all theses people PM'ing him, something might happen, of course nothing may happen. Goodluck any way....

Sorry if this has already been posted:

Interview with Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart (http://www.totalvideogames.com/news/Obsidian_On_Star_Wars:_Knights_of_The_Old_Republic _3_9640_5665_0.htm)

"We have been talking with LucasArts to do KOTOR3 since August 2004 and we hoped to do it since KOTOR2 was done. LucasArts is thinking what they want to do with it and we would happily make KOTOR3, if that's what LucasArts wants to do."

Well I guess it is up to the KOTOR gods whether or not they want to make KOTOR III. Maybe an offering would sway their decision? :D

I found this on theforce.net, still a little disapointing though. :?


But so far nothing has been seen or written in regards to KOTOR III, Republic Commando II, Star Wars Galaxies' future, and the rumoured title based around Darth Vader. All of those, of course, have never been completly confirmed nor denied by LucasArts as yet ... but we're still hoping.

I just hope LucasArts can see clearly how promising the KotOR series is and has been, and that they make the right decision (that is, make a third game!)

We may have to wait a while seeing how busy LA looks with those games, but there might still be hope. Look how long its taken them to make a sequel to Command & Conquer, and If EA reccognises the cashflow potential, LA should do too, in a year or 2 maybe (hopefully not :( )

Well, they wouldn't not make the game. It would be too profitable. They want to make the game and I have hope that they will.

Sadly, the only way I see them commiting to KotOR 3 is if somehow, someway, the other L.A. games now being developed and distributed are a huge bust.

Which isn't the case.

All of the current games on their table are all making a beaucoup of money.

Maybe next year, but I doubt it. The larger the span of time between sequels, the lesser the chance becomes that it will be made.

I'm trying hard not to be pessimistic, but the reality of this is kicking us all in the keister.

Yup. Just wish they'd say no. I hate limbo.

Well, LucasArts certainly has to redeem itself in the gaming community's eyes. The way KOTOR II was rushed was simply inexcusable. What would they rather have? An unfinished project for a quick profit, or a properly done masterpiece? Honestly... what were they thinking?

If they don't make a new game fine. I would be just as happy if they wrote a book to close out all the characters they created in this series. I think that the lack of ending in the second game should be reason enough to at least give fans some close. It WON'T be the reason they do it if they do it.

I wish they would fix that. A deluxe version (on x box 360 maybe?) would be a good way to guage potential profit in a new game, and I'd (grudgingly) pay for the game that should have been.
