I agree with InSidious. If I remember correctly, there was a similar post around here a few months ago.

A link is only worth 1000 words if it comes from the producers or the developers . In this case, LucasArts or (most likely) Obsidian.

its a fake, besides lucas arts will go with obsidian most likely as they can push them around, where as bioware wont allow themselves to be pushed around eg release dates

The chance of them making an announcement outside of official channels complete with spelling errors is slim to none, and slim's out of town.

I don't necessarily think that's the case. When KotOR was being created LucasArts had no idea it would be such a hit, therefor they obviously had no reason to push Bioware to put out a product so quickly. However when KotOR2 was in production LucasArts knew it would sell well, and thus they wanted it out as quickly as possible. I sincerely doubt it had anything to do with Obsidian being pushovers.

Besides, LucasArts did not choose Obsidian to do KotOR2 for any other reason than that Bioware didn't want to do it, and Bioware handed it to Obsidian. You can actually hear Feargus Urquhart (President of Obsidian Entertainment) admit this in an interview about NWN2.

Sounds like the creation of a fan-boy's wet dream. In other words, someone's read the 3rd post in every thread in this section and conjured a news article.

ugh, i can't believe this fake news has come up again! This is probably a year old and it seems like every couple months someone new finds it again.

That rumor is old. I actually just recently read that page, during a Google search for KotOR III news.


Bioware isn't doing KotOR III. They won't be doing it for the same reason they didn't do KotOR II. So if you have an unconfirmed fan-based report saying Bioware is in the process of developing the third installment, it shouldn't be taken seriously.


It would be swell if a moderator could edit the title of this thread to prevent further heart failures.

Sadly this is true, I dont know why Bioware did not want to do Kotor II, after all Kotor I is one of Bioware's best games (and I played a lot of Bioware RPGs).

While Kotor II wasn't bad at all (except for the story) there wasn't anything surprisingly new in it either, Obsidian basically improved Bioware's ideas.

Well if memory serves most of the Obsidian guys worked for/with Bioware at some point or another, which is probably one of the reasons they were handed KotOR2 in the first place. And big business says if you've got a winner, don't mess with a good thing, so should KotORIII actually get made, I wouldn't expect anything amazingly new in it either.

I'll believe it when I see it.

If Bioware is in fact developing KotOR III, I sure hope it looks like Mass Effect.

The reason why Bioware did not do Kotor II and will not do Kotor III is because they want to do only their own IP (Intellectual Properties).

I guess this goes to show the power of rumors as this one is just like a cockroach. You can kill one but they keep coming back.

Please reference this previous post that references previous posts referencing other posts that debunk this foul rumor.
