I am of the opinion that Lucasarts has to make a third KOTOR. Look at the way TSL ended, it ended in a "cliff hanger". Think about it, ending the KOTOR series with TSL would be like Lucas ending the Star Wars movies with The Empire Strikes Back. I mean, there are too many questions left unanswered. Who is this true Sith? Where are they? What was Revan's fate? How will the Exile find Revan? What are the true Sith's "lands"? and so on. Correct me if I am wrong, but I think they are definitely going to make a third KOTOR.

I'm not saying I don't want them to make KotOR III or that they shouldn't, I'm just saying that people should be more open to the idea of a KotOR MMO, that's all I was saying.

I was emailed about it from CVG.

Here's the link: http://www.computerandvideogames.com....php?id=162675

I'm not sure if that's the original link I read it from but that's pretty much the extent of it.

A Kotor3 is absolutely necessary, IMO, to finish up the story. We don't even know how the Jedi Order has reestablished itself again. But also think a Kotor MMO would fit well in the Era. A war with the True Sith would spawn a battlefield that can be used for a MMO. But I still doubt if they could make it interesting enough.

I just don't want to see the KOTOR series end in a pay monthly MMO in order to find out what happened to Revan and the Exile. Don't get me wrong, if they made a MMO alongside a singleplayer game of KOTOR 3, that would be great. I just think that if you start a franchise a certain way, you should at least finish it the same way. I just don't want a MMO in place of KOTOR 3.

What I seriously wonder, is KotOR III going to explain what happened to the Exile as the TRUE endings should have happened? Such as having a bit back story to clarify what truly happened at Malachor. Either way I can't wait for a new KotOR be it III or MMO.

That's the opposite of what I've been saying. They won't replace KotOR III with a KotOR MMO, there's no logic behind doing that and would deffinetely lose money if they did do that, they're not stupid, of course they'll finish the KotOR story even if they did make a kotOR MMO. Making a KotOR MMO doesn't mean they won't make KotOR III.

That is true. But we don't know how, and what impact their "new" teachings will have for the future. And combined with the fact that there's a threat to the Republic, there's still the question how the "new' Order survived this. A lot of questions arise when an order gets wiped out completely and is then being rebuild. Even more when the one who actually rebuilds it, is the one who has been exiled by the Masters of the "old" Order. And that "new" Order was established in very difficult times. The Republic on the verge of collapsing, worlds struggling to find peace again... how did this "new" Order survive? Even more so when the Jedi and Sith are basically viewed as one by most people in the galaxy. The only thing we know is that the Exile managed to rebuild the Order, with the "lost" Jedi as the first apprentices and the first Jedi Knights. There are many questions I'd like answers on...

Master Zionosis, I apologize, my last statement was not directed at you. I sometimes just don't understand the route Lucasarts is taking with the KOTOR series regarding a third KOTOR.

There's still Atris, who has at least access to the Jedi writtings, which should enable her to help teaching new students. Afaik, it's canon, that Exile helped Atris to leave the path of the dark side. And there's still Bastilla - and if someone like her survived, probably other Jedi survived as well :-) After some centuries, the "rebuilt" Jedi Order could succeed in regaining most of it's old teachings...

Following up on the last few posts, I wold also like Obsidian to make KotOR III rather than BioWare. Obsidian just did a better job overall, and they would have completed the game if it hadn't been for LucasArts. Plus, Obsidian has said they are still interested in making K3, and BioWare has said that they have no plans to make it.

you wouldn't ask for a spific relese date or anything just if there its going to happen and who is doing it and i kinda wanted it from obsidian but the gameplay in k2 was so tidious and fod gods sake it took me 5 hours to get my lightsaber(because bioware games have a certain lack of freedom that you'd need in an rpg and the inprovement of openness that they boast for ME seems to be mostly diolge and misssion freedom).someone said along time ago and i dont know where said
kotor+oblivion = best game ever
but lets face it when lucas arts makes the game there going to tell bioware why becase if they had a and in kotor 2 they'll probably have a hand in kotor 3

and correct me if i'm wrong but doesent bioware have some kind of copy wright on the kotor series i think it says that every time you start kotor 2
anyways hers a link saying that lucas did'nt forget about kotor

Sure, that means a lot less buyers but it also means them getting to do what they really want to do ( for whatever reason.) I don't like the wait, but I'm certainly not going to stop buying LA games because of it. I know you didn't say you would, but I know people who would.

Folks, this thread is about the possibility of Kotor 3. It's not about Kotor as an MMO (which goes in this thread) or a discussion of which game developer did a better job, which is discussed in this thread. Off topic posts have been pruned to keep the thread on topic. Thanks.

I am sure lucasarts knows that if they make a KOTOR 3 game it will sell well due to it's fan base and it's past success, perhaps they are just waiting for the right time.

Hello

I must say I woke up to the KotOR saga very late in my madness for Star Wars. I guess it's never too late, even so I wish I could have played the game earlier to live it like those who did when it was released.
But now that I finished KotOR, I can only feel I want more...
So many questions are left unanswered with KotOR II... So many! It's not like Lucas to just let things untold or unfinished...
I keep seeing marketing pressure the Unleashed. I heard about a Republic Commandos sequel and more, but no KotOR, the best selling Star Wars game ever?

Actually, Battlefront was the best selling Star Wars game.

But I agree. I don't think they meant the series to end like this. And the Unleashed strategy is what keeps a next Kotor from being made, and understandable IMO. Besides the work that goes into Unleashed, together with their other games, they don't want a third Kotor to compete with their own Unleashed.

That's a good theory, plus (adding something positive here) they might have to wait 'till Bioware has finished their Mass Effect game untill they can officially start using the Engine (read: announce the game). Similar stuff has happened with several Unreal engines, to name one. Kotor with Mass Effect graphics...*drool*

Anyways, we'll just have to wait and see what LucasArts has up their sleeves for us after The Force Unleashed. E3 2008, anyone?

Why would LucasArts need to wait for Bioware's Mass Effect? It's Epic's engine. But a Kotor III with Unreal Engine 3 graphics would rule, definitely!

Posts on whether or not K3 should be more FPS-like have been split from this thread and merged with the Kotor 3 combat system thread. Please keep this thread focused on the possibility of K3. Thanks!

Time matters not.

We all lived it in each our own way, just probably more times than you.
...Maybe, depending on how often you've played.

That's one of the best things about this game, it's replay value. The ability to develop characters and choose your path through the story. BioWare did an excellent job and has been successful ever since. Being primarily a console player, it was KotOR that was responsible for me going back to experience this genre.

Whether or not LucasArts decides to hire them for the next KotOR is yet to be seen. We have heard promises that this series would not be left behind, and I believe that, but there are too many avenues for speculation to actually know until they tell us.

Personally, I believe they would want BioWare to head this project but may be waiting until there's room on their plate. It was reported that BioWare has no problem doing it and would welcome the job, but hasn't been asked by LA yet.

Decisions just may be hinging on what system to use which would determine the type of game. Would they dare change it?
Also, what started out a PC game has crossed over smoothly to console and they may be determining platform as well.



...Oh, by the way, welcome.

Hey... my posts were deleted??? Ah well, rules are rules.

Yes. KotOR is timeless. I hope KotOR III is also timeless. The reply value is guaranteed is such titles.

And thanks for the welcoming...

The posts weren't deleted--I just moved them to the correct thread (see above). --Jae

I haven't read anything about BioWare wanting to make KotOR 3. Are you sure you haven't mistaken Obsidian Entertainment's CEO for a BioWare employee? Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart reportedly stated in 2006 March:
Quote:
"We have been talking with LucasArts to do KOTOR3 since August 2004 and we hoped to do it since KOTOR2 was done. LucasArts is thinking what they want to do with it and we would happily make KOTOR3, if that's what LucasArts wants to do."

Yes, I'm totally mistaken. That's exactly what I read. I mistook Obsidian's reply for BioWare.

My apologies.

...and thank you Char Ell.

If Obsidian would like to make it then we should just wait till LA wants it to be made and made right.

I mean LA has alot on its hands now and if it needs some more time then we should give it some more time but I plan on them announcing it around some time around next year or so but if they havn't by then I wouldn't count on KOTOR3 being in production ever.

@ Cygnus Q'ol - No worries. But do get some sleep. It sucks to be sleep-deprived.

OK. So I'm really scraping the bottom of the KotOR news barrel with this one. Well, actually this can't be classified as news per se but rather is a rumor that may or may not have anything to do with another KotOR game. *sigh*

After visiting Gen Con 2007 in Indianapolis, Alleycat Games reports that three Star Wars miniature sets will be released in 2008. The first one is for characters from The Legacy of The Force comics. The remaining two sets are rumored to be for The Clone Wars TV show and Knights of the Old Republic. If true, then this miniature set could be based on the KotOR comics but of course I'm hoping that the set is based on characters from the KotOR games and that this is another reminder that LucasArts hasn't dropped the KotOR game franchise.

Like I said, scraping the very bottom of the barrel on this one...

Well...
I know this is marketing strategies at full throttle, but, if LA isn't planning a KotOR III they should at least announce that! It's feeding too much speculation.
Yesterday I heard another rumout that a group of fans was creating Kotor III mod based in the Obsidian engine. Just a rumour, fortunately, ended up being teamGiska with their restoration mod.
But it's a good example for what I said above.

All news concerning Kotor3 has been a little vague, IMO. Even the statement "won't be leaving Kotor behind" is somewhat vague, and I think maybe it's time LucasArts said if it's planned or not.

My friend, they did the same thing with Republic Commando and, guess what?, they are making a sequel.
That's not the point, the point is: This silence is feeding rumors. At least they could say "Ok, not planned until 2009" or something or "sorry! we're not planning anything" or " there's a project going on, no dates"... that's the sort of thing they CAN do and this is my only critic...

I agree. The Kotor series is my favorite of all the Star Wars games. It's only right that the make #3 and conclude it. Especially with the Empire Strikes Back type to be continued ending they gave us for #2.

Seroisuly, they left so much at the end, it has to be continued! The return of Revan, the Exile, the battle agaisnt the true sith, the restabilization of the republic... There was that Revan vision in the secret tomb in the cave on Korriban- and you fight Revan signalling that something must be going to happen in the third game. perhaps they are just keepign it as secret as they an to make it a total suprise...


Please feed the trolls. XD

That's my instinct, there's no law that they have to tell us they're making it, they could announce it like a week before it's released, they are allowed to do that, and that's what I think is happening, either they are already developing it, or it is to be developed very very soon

Well they don't have to do anything really (whoever it may be who may be making the game). I ain't holdion' my breath on this one at all until there is definate official proof of the game's production, it's release.

No, they haven't. If they had, I'd think one little bit of info about a possible sequel would be somewhere on LA.com.

Ok here is my take on the whole situation. LA does have alot on its plate at this time, with the upcoming "tv mini movies" that were announced at E3. Another HUGE factor is the advent of next generation graphics technologies. Look at "The Force Unleashed" for an example. Console systems like the PS3 have sooooooo much graphic and processing power its crazy. Before releasing a MAJOR SEQUEL title a company will want to wait at this time due to several reasons.
1. Next gen graphics.
2. Console systems.
3. DX10 and Vista are not mainstream as of yet.
4. There is a new video technology out there that is just coming of age and its totally mind blowing. It uses mathmatcal algorithms instead of bitmapping graphics, this will especially make a huge impact on games designed for PS3 and its MASSIVE cell processor engine(s).
5. Third party vendor vs in house development. Obsidion is a good company and offers alot of support HOWEVER... thier games are sluggish and slow and require tons and tons of updates .. example is NWN2.. its an awesome game but runs sluggish even on the best of systems. Hopefully Mask of the Betrayer will fix up some of those slowdown problems.

So as you can see there are many many aspects that go into the "announcement" of any release by a company like LA.. especially one as big as a K3 announcement.

IMHO I think Force Unleased is actually an experiment of sorts into these next gen graphics and will let them know just what they can be capable of with a MAJOR title release like a K3 would be. I would not expect any official K3 announcement for at least another year.

My guesstimation is that if it's not made or announced by the end of next year, it's probably not.


Yesterday is history. Tomorrow, a mystery. Today is a gift...that is why it is called the present.

Lucasarts, that does the games, is a different company from Lucasfilm, which is presumably doing the shows.
