For immediate Release

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic for PC Cancelled

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. -- March 31, 2003 -- LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC today announced that development of its Role-Playing Game “Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic” on the PC was stopped. According to spokesman Jon Petersen the game didn’t progress as planned. Developed by BioWare Corp., the dramatic game was set to feature an original story set some 4,000 years prior to the timeframe of the Star Wars films in an era dominated by an epic conflict between the Jedi and the evil Sith.

“The implementation of certain features like the “Forge Document” Skill or the “Con Artist” Class just took too long” says Project Leader Marcel Hatam from BioWare. Artist William Myers adds,”Of course we understand that PC gamers won’t be happy about this situation, but we are confident that our next project will compensate them for this loss!”

“The development of the Xbox and N64 versions continues, and we are still on schedule of shipping them prior to 2009” says BioWare spokesman Rhett Peterson.

You got that right bub. I mean they mentioned it coming out for N64 and they aren't even making games for that platform anymore. I say we all go to Teutonic Knight's house since he lives up in San Rafael and we can plan our attack from there. These are not very nice April Fool's pranks :D

:lsduel: :duel:

I already PMed Pad, and said I wouldn't ruin this thread, but no one was fooled. I thought there were more idiots other than me here.

By that, I mean the DF mod cancellation. Grr, that still ain't funny. Bloody Brit humor :mad:
