Nope there hasn't been any announcement yet but keep your eyes open and hopefully they'll make it on a different engine.

Maybe they should make an expansion pack for it like MOTS. Only do one for each side

If they do an expansion pack the equivalent of MotS, it'll be better than JA... that's a good thing.

He's right, no announcements, not even any rumors, sorry.

This year LA will release a new Star Wars FPS but it won't have Jedi or the Force, and it's set during the prequels ("Republic Commando").

I think they are (wisely) leaving the saber wielding games alone for the moment.

They should wait at least a year before starting work on a new JK game, and then use the Doom 3 or Source engine to produce one damn amazing game

Yeah, they really need to have a new engine for the next JK game.

I would not have a problem with another one, but it has got to have a better storyline than JA's.

i agree with The_One that they should wait at least a year before making another jedi knight game. with all the new star wars fps coming out the market would have too many fps star wars games out that would be kinda annoying, even though they probably won't have similar gameplay. also comparing jedi outcast to jedi academy, the games are so similar that it didn't feel like playing an entirely new game. using a new engine would help with making the gameplay feel new. also i hope the next one is based on kyle katarn and is completely linear with a good story or they make a really open ended jedi academy like deus ex but more action. the ability to choose different missions in jedi academy didn't make the gameplay feel open ended because you had to play at least 4 and taking the 5th was almost a no brainer because it wasn't highly difficult and you get another force power.

They should make an all guns FPS shooter game besides Republic Commando and make it set in OT times and make it like Dark Forces with Half life engine.

Wait for E3, also remember that up till now there's always been a long wait between Dark Forces games.


Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.

It's like Britney Spears albums, one comes out and before you know it 6 months later there is another one out.

yeah, but lucasarts seems to be churning out average games at a much higher rate these days, instead of taking it's time and making classics.

The DF storyline has kind of run out of steam after JK2 as well, if they do another one they should go back to JK and follow the dark ending, with kyle (and saris) attempting to take over the galaxy and get onto that nice big throne.

Q3 engine looks like it would be an even worse choice for a JK game than the Q2 one was, they should go with the latest Unreal engine (or HL2, or farcry, or lithtech) so they can get some big vertical levels again.

Hey thats my line I am captain obvious here. Anyway if they make a Jedi Knight 4 game it better be on different engine one that can handle Enviroment interaction (force push anything thing like box's or junk or bump it to a box and have it move like half life 2 or Doom 3)

You want one with an actual realistic physics model? Me too (although it would cause me to become a push spammer )!
