They seem to put out quality games from what I've seen personally.

Raven has yet to develop their own engine. If you want KOTOR3 to be on the Quake 3 engine Raven is a good choice.

BTW I like the Jedi Knight games but Raven is no RPG developer.

I liked K1 better, so I say BioWare, their game had a lighter feel to it, whereas K2 made me feel like I was the Exile's shrink...

Sorry, can't do anything for you.
If it helps I hope a better company takes its place after it dies and the employees get a company that cares about them.

There has been a lot of studio being thrown around, but most of them are NOT RPG developers. Raven made some FPS, so did Pandemic.

On a side note, Pletogryph is making Empire at War NOT Pandemic Studios.

I still think Bioware is the best option with Obsidian a close second. Either company is fine, provided LA gives them the time to finish it.

Blizzard has made some good games, so I wouldn't hate the idea. It's not the best choice, though.

some? all there games went gold ithink. but yeah bioware is my first choice regardless. as for la playing fair. It's easier getting Obsidian, bioware AND blizzard working together in a frozen hell with multiple personalities and then michael jackson playing with satan in the room next to him.

but it might happen.

Be realistic. Blizzard doesn't like not being in control of their project, probably just like Bioware.
I understand it. It must be quite annoying having LA looking over your shoulder policing whatever you're doing.

well, at the moment Raven is developing Quake 4, which utilizes Id's Doom 3 engine, so its not like they don't have the capabilities to produce a great looking game. but still, Raven isn't an RPG developer.

of course, i've stated it before and i'll state it again: why can't LucasArts develop Kotor 3 internally?? they have enough fiscal power to purchase rights to just about any graphics engine out there, much less hire the right people to get the job done right.

I don't think Microsoft would like to do it.

They publish more then they make themselves and their games are pretty good, unlike EA's whose policy is "churn out as much crap as you possibly can."

By the way, EA's games are way worse then Microsoft's. I mean, where was EA's Halo (made by Bungie, published by Microsoft)? Or AoE3? Or Forza Motorsport?

I would like a Engine like the Doom3 Engine... Look at those shadows, they would be perfect for lightsaber duels.
And everything what the quake3 engine can do, can doom3 do too.
I spend a lot of time in modifying the doom3 engine, and i must say, its one of the best engines i know, and the effects would be great.
Even a RPG system should be possible to implent, when you see Lineage2 got a Unreal engine, it means it should realy be possible, and why not? ^^

edit: and about the developers... Models can be used in every game. all they need is to write the main code for another engine, but that cant be so hard, when i see what they already did!

I dunno, the Doom3 engine seems to have "plastic" textures. It looks kinda weird and unless we really want a survival horror KotOR3, amazing lighting effects aren't that important.

Bioware, I believe, stated that they would never again do a Star Wars product. I don't have an exact quote or reference but I have seen this referenced on multiple boards. The most likely developer is Obsidian, though after NWN2.

I am betting that LucasArts is VERY hard to work with. I've seen interviews with ole' Georgie going on about how "hands on" he is with Star Wars. After probably 20,000 changes they said never again...lol

I'd rather have Obsidian develop KOTOR III, mainly due to the fact they wrote KOTOR II and that story is a bit....wide open, so they probably have the best idea what they were attempting.

At this point Bioware has pretty much stated that they are only working on their own intellectual property. That leaves us with OE.

Or another development house. All that means is it won't be Bioware, not that it will be Obsidian.

the should deffinetly work together bioware had good thing s that could contribute to the futer of gameing and obsidian had much better graphics and overall gameplay was more life like.... i had a much better time with kotor 2 than i did with kotor 1 but if the 2 game develpors put both things together it would be a overall sure win for game of the year.....
i mean think about it kotor 1 won over 40 game of the year awards and that means they did somthing rihgt but kotor 2 flew off the shelves so they too did somthing right....they would be better off working together....

Bioware has a way of doing things.

Obsidian has a different way of doing things.

Bioware + Obsidian = Not good

It doesn't matter who developes it if LA doesn't stop rushing unfinished games out the door. Don't get me wrong, I like LucasArts. They just need to stop being so strict with release dates.

Oh, and hello everyone. i'm new!

I agree with you. Going back to tsl, if they hadn't been strict with the christmas release, it could have been much better. Hopefully (and it seems they aren't going to with it not being scheduled till '08) they don't make the same mistake again.

maybe Bioware should do kotor 3, they could incorperate the same new stuff that Obsidion did... and make it more stable... however i am not knocking Obsidion because they were rushed to get the game out...

I agree if they had taken some time The droid factory, planet and more could have been better in TSL not to mention the horrible "loose" ending.

Why not? Lucasarts worked with them already, since KOTOR was sold on a Microsoft exclusive console.

Well, think of it as this: Does every game/software application for Windows work with them? Not really Other than assuring it runs on a platform etc.

Leave it to Microsoft to buy up the darn planet

I'd like to see Obsidian do it, honestly. The storyline they did showed promise, but their developement timeline was too short for what they were trying to do. With a little luck they'd have a longer developement cycle and will have learned to better allocate the time they do have.

Come to think about it BioWare made 80% of the game, so Obsidian had very little to do...
