"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."

LOL, yeah right. LA might contract to Obsidian Entertainment, but I've never heard of Obsidian Development.

Also, to have only real-time combat would mean abandoning the current engine, which would change the way the game plays. Not gonna happen. It's like saying the new Jedi Knight game will be completely turn-based.

I should also point out that this is opinion not fact - big difference.

It would be cool if KOTOR 3 was already in the works, but anything that says "it's going all real time" is bogus. You know how many fans would be up in arms..in real-time or turn-based fans would be up in arms....ooo bad joke =P

I hope they release it for PC, after all, they will have much more customers, dedicated customers. I mean, a lot of people (me, for example) won´t buy 360 just to play K3. And also, it would be treason to all the LucasArts PC customers, and I would bet that we are a good bunch of people.

Personaly, I won´t believe it until LucasArts, or the license developer, makes an official announcement.

The article never says that K3 will be XBOX 360 exclusive. It never even mentions what platforms it might be made for. Read the article more carefully and you will see that when it states anything about the XBOX 360 or PS3 in the section, it has transitioned into talking about Mercenaries 3, which is in development by Pandemic. Also, from what we know of the past, K3 will be for both XBOX 360 and PC. I don't think they will change the platform inbetween games of a standing series. It wouldn't be logical. However, I wouldn't put it past Micro$oft to someone twist LucasArts into releasing it as a 360-exclusive game. I don't think it will happen, though.

Also, this article is being condemned because it is IGN's predictions. However, if you take all of the predictions and "we think"s out of it, you can chisle it down to few solid facts that the do know. Or atleast what they claim to know as fact. Try this....

LucasArts' recent silence by no means equals inactivity. On the contrary, Knights of the Old Republic 3 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.

Makes since to me. Notice that this is the stuff they actually know. Not to be confused with what they predicted, which is sorely based on the limited knowledge they do have.

Relax.. KOTOR3 will never be Xbox exclusive. Why limit yourself to a console audience when you can have the console people AND PC people? It wouldn't make sense market-wise... and I believe the original KOTOR was designed exclusively for the PC and then they decided to port it to the Xbox not long after. Remember, the Xbox is really just a PC you can plug controllers into and play through your TV, it wouldn't make sense to not make a PC version.

At this point we don't even know if there WILL be a KOTOR3. We can just assume, since the series is so popular and loved, and I think there will be one but I don't know why IGN would give a prediction on it already being in development without something to back it up.

Oh yeah, and if they did make the combat real-time (not likely), I'd have to send a bunch of hatemail to Obsidian. That is the one thing that drew me to the game and it's just another thing that makes it so much better than the Jedi Knight series!

IGN is mirroring what they see in forums. I noticed that they use words and phrases that came from conversations found at ObsidianEnt and LucasFourms.com. Otherwords, they are only repeating the philosophies and rumors found in the Star Wars community, and they are repackaging it as news.

They are also making 'predoictions'. Predictions are their attempt in telling the future.

Innerfears made some good points there, about K3 not being exclusive to 360. I almost panicked when I read the previous posts about the matter.
I wonder if LA is going to release some information about K3 soon, cause it has already been quite long since they released KotOR II. Do they have any other big projects there at the moment?

If Kotor 3 comes out for only the X-Box, it will proof they are taking the wrong road. We know Uncle Bill paid them for it then, and they are only there for the cash. On long term, it would destory them.

Remember, the Xbox is really just a PC you can plug controllers into and play through your TV, it wouldn't make sense to not make a PC version.Hmmm... perhaps a chronological review of KotOR game series release dates is in order?

2003 July 17 - KotOR for XBOX released (http://www.gamespot.com/xbox/rpg/starwarsknightsoftor/index.html?q=knights%20of%20the%20old%20republic)
2003 November 18 - KotOR for the PC released (http://www.gamespot.com/pc/rpg/starwarsknightsoftor/review.html?q=knights%20of%20the%20old%20republic)

2004 December 6 - KotOR II:TSL for XBOX released (http://www.lucasarts.com/press/releases/95.html)
2005 February 10 - KotOR II:TSL for PC released (http://www.lucasarts.com/press/releases/97.html)

Still think any of the KotOR games were designed exclusively for the PC and then ported to the XBOX? :D

I definitely hope that any future KotOR games are supported on PC since I do not intend to buy an XBOX 360, PS3, or Revolution. However I suffer no delusions that the PC platform drives video game sales. The big numbers are on the consoles. Those of us who play on PC are just hoping we get to come along for the ride... :)

Yes, but in turn it will run so much better on the PC because the PC is so much more powerful and stable. Oh, and I forgot to add that a PC usually won't burn itself up (unless someone overclocks your videocard without you knowing, and it burns up one day and you don't know what the heck happened...If I ever find out who did that..........but anyway.)

Why do you say that?
He is probably comparing the jump of K1 and K2 from XBOX to PC - and the console limitation you saw there, with the jump of K3 from XBOX 360 to PC. In the case of K3 and the 360, the console's limitations are considerably lessened, and could make for a more aesthetically pleasing game, which might feel even more at home on the PC, than the previous two.

There will be a KotOR3. The Lucas Empire is paying attention to the "Old Republic" time period, with new comics from Dark Horse and the inclusion of HK-47 in the latest expansion to Star Wars Galaxies being prime examples. Obviously there is a recognition of the enormous popularity of this little sub-franchise.

What I'm looking for, a few years down the road, is KotOR Online - an MMO which, like D&D Online, will use the D20 rule set like the pen and paper SW RPG. It would be a perfect opportunity, with the Jedi (led by Brianna, or Bindo?) and the Mandalorians (led by Ordo) as well as the Exchange and the Genoharradan all trying to recover from the events of the KotOR trilogy and find their way in the Republic as the Galaxy rebuilds after the "true Sith" are defeated.

Seems like it is too good an idea for it not to happen.

I loved the first Knights of the Old Republic comic. I'm not a comic book fan, I haven't read any comics in year but HAD to buy the KOTOR comic because it was KOTOR.

What I don't understand is Star Wars Galaxies with HK-47. I've never played Galaxies and don't know what it is. But if HK-47 is in it, can you point me in the right direction so I might obtain (buy) the game?

KOTOR 2 (then 1... I played them backwards) is/was the first Star Wars game I've ever played. I never have been a "true" Star Wars fan (seen all movies but that was it) until these games. I'm still not a "true" fan since I'm still learning about the universe of Star Wars and "finding" KOTOR websites.

Or the Knights of the Old Republic comic book will be our Part Three. Meaning, they'll lead up to Knights 1 and then finish off the series with the comics...

oorrr...

Their taking their time to produce a quality game for a finisher (Three is usually the end of any series) and are waiting till the actual Knights comic finishes, or at least gets a ways into it.

My guess? EXTREMELY late '06 for X-Box, early-mid '07 for PC.

But then again...Knights 3? *pets his Knights 2 and hisses at everyone*

I doubt that a lot OneMan, mainly because of the difference in potential profit. Not a lot of people read comics, and they're pretty cheap (I think, haven't read a comic for about 10 years but hey). On the other hand, huge numbers of people play PC and console games, plus if you look at the price of games compared to that of comics, and you have your answer.

With regard to Star Wars Galaxies, please do not waste your money. The quality control is laughable, and it gives every appearance of being a game designed only to capitalise upon an intellecutal property license. If accountants, who neither played video games or enjoyed Star Wars, created an MMO, it would be remarkably like SW:G.

Don't take my word for it, however. Go read the forums at station.sony.com and download the free trial version. You can play to level 10.

SWG really highlights the need for development of the Old Republic era, and the KotOR games in particular. These two games represent the absolute best SW gaming experience available. They are the only games in my opinion to capture the feel of Star Wars, and so it is with great anticipation that I await #3.

ok first of all I think you guys are wasting your time complaining if it will be on pc or if it will be an exclusive for 360. They put the first two games on the xbox and pc and so it's obvious they are going to do it again. The question right now is 'Who is going to make it?'( bioware or obsidian or another company), 'When will we be able to get our hands on it?' And 'will the storyline be good and will Revan/Exile be playable?'

I agree with you completely that it will be on both the XBOX 360 and the PC. But also, as they did in the first two, the player character should be an absolutely new character.Re-playing as either Revan or the Exile will ruin the game for me, and will only be possible with even more amnesia of 'Force wounds'. And I, for one, find these two things already overused and dead ideas.

Good job by biasing the Xbox by rumors and scattered problems. I am yet to have a problem with mine.

I wouldn't mind a PC/ XBOX same time launch, but it will probably be on 360 first. PC first won't happen IMO, although it is better, because patches are easier to make for PC, while XBOX users have to wait every couple of months for an XBL update (if they even have it).

If the same happens to KOTOR, we KNOW it's Bill's fault, because LA is a compagny that want's to make as much money as the can. So unless Bill pays them an enormous amount of money, they will bring it for PC and X-360.

@ Topic:

That's true, because its a cheap way to keep playing the newest games, without having to buy a new computer. But the PC is winning terrain. Let's see how it stand when Spore and the new Unreal are released...we have to wait to judge.

The Japanese bombers aren't that good.
If you really want to do some damage, you might consider buying the A-10 Tankbuster. It shreads Tanks apart in aprox 2-3 seconds.

You actually pay for the Gatling, wich is very expensive. It's an 30 mm GAU-8/A seven-barrel Gatling. It fires 3,900 rounds per minute, wich means it shoots 65 30mm bullets per second. The Gatling is so big, that the plane uses several engines mounted on the wings instead of the centre.
The plane it's mounted in goes realy slow this way, only about 420 mp/h.
At least you get the airplane for free if you buy it ^^

@ Topic:
Just read something disturbing:
Halo 2 is released EXCLUSIVELY for Windows Vista. It could be...that Kotor 3 will do the same. This way, Linux and Mac users will be screwed, and people that aren't going to by Vista as well.
I'm not saying it will happen, but it's a possibility. If it's released for the 360, mircrosoft may have a hand in it's release.

Conclusion:
PokeJedi, but that D*mned A-10!

I'd still rather hear an official announcement from Lucas Arts before we all jump the gun.

@SK: Hmm..Direct X 10? Very, very nice. Good specs. Might actually be worth buying :) Thanks for showing...

@ Topic
For all as we know, there might not even come an anouncement, and they release it out of the blue :p Speculating is fun, and what if a programmer of K3 sees a realy good idea? ^^

DX10 has real good stuff in it. But I still have to go with XP.

Let's hope they don't do it only for Vista;)

Btw. LucasArts would be stupid if they don't develop a K III. I mean KI & KII were awesome. they have to end the story. What's with revan? the exile?

Although there's no official announcement yet, I think something like that will be when the E 3 is.

Let's hope there will be something soon :)

If this rumor is true and the story will again leap ahead in time and introduce an new PC (which is something that I wouldn't mind)...I hope that they do a really good job intertwining the back story with the game story that we do get at least an idea of what happened to Revan/the Exile...if not then I will be disappointed.

But their fates will have to be addressed... via dialogues or somesuch.

If not then the fanboys will run rampant in the streets attacking people with their plastic lightsabers whilst wearing Revan masks! :xp:

Hey you have to think that sometimes people in the press are told things off the record by companys, They are given info but cant print it as fact until the company makes their own announcements, this is the way that companys get info out. Kinda like a government leak when they want us to know but dont want to come right out and tell us.... just a little food for thought. and my thoughts on it comming out on p.c, of course it will, it will just be on the gaming systems first like that last one.

Ahem.
Why do you assume fanboys will be the only ones annoyed if the game comes out as you predict?

Some of us would ratehr boycott the game, and then suck the devs' brains out with a straw.

@RedHawke: Meh, he has no chance to survive, make his time :xp:

Actually Ming pre-dates most all villans, so give credit where credit is due! :xp: -RH

Yes, if they don't address it, we fangirls will be practical and band together to plan something very Darkside. :dev7: Or we'll just quickly mod in the answers to their fates.... :giggle1:
