KOTOR 3 info from IGN

"LucasArts: KOTOR 3, Mercenaries 2
LucasArts' recent silence by no means equals inactivity. On the contrary, Knights of the Old Republic 3, in development with Obsidian Development, is in the early stages of creation for a late 2006 -- most likely a 2007 -- release. The game should feature more seamless interaction between NPCs and the lead character, as well as better, more economic interactions between party members. We predict the combat system will go entirely realtime, as opposed to partially realtime (the way it was in KOTOR 1 and 2), and RPG fans will be able to enjoy more distinct shades of gray recognized by characters instead of the black and white distinctions made in the first two iterations of the series."

LOL, yeah right. LA might contract to Obsidian Entertainment, but I've never heard of Obsidian Development.

Also, to have only real-time combat would mean abandoning the current engine, which would change the way the game plays. Not gonna happen. It's like saying the new Jedi Knight game will be completely turn-based.

I should also point out that this is opinion not fact - big difference.

Exactly. It's their predictions, probably done in a half-joking type of way too.

more economic interactions with party members? lol that sounds funny, I'm such a great Jedi/Sith you gotta pay just to talk to me =P

It would be cool if KOTOR 3 was already in the works, but anything that says "it's going all real time" is bogus. You know how many fans would be up in arms..in real-time or turn-based fans would be up in arms....ooo bad joke =P


Always two there are, no more, no less...feel weak it makes one, when only two they need.

Taking a turn-based combat RPG and turning it into a realtime FPS after two games in a successful format?

Ha ha ha, whoa, whoo whoo! Oh boy, Ha ha ha...
(Stops typing to catch breath from laughing...)

Sorry, that's the funniest thing I've heard today.

They did not say that it will be a FPS. The claim merely was that it would be realtime. There is a big difference.

As far as I know did the KotOR series good on the PC so there should be no reason for LA to make it 360 exlusive.

What is the difference between realtime and semi-realtime?

How would this manifest itself in this particular game?

Well microsoft announced that no more games for the normal xbox would be made from now on i believe.

EDIT: But I'm sure it will be made for PC.

Although much smaller, I believe the PC market to be sufficiently big to warrant at least some sort of port from an Xbox 360 version.

If they do release it 360 only then they really are insane, they'll lose millions of customers including me.
I doubt it will make it to the PS3, maybe if it's for the PC as well.

I hope they release it for PC, after all, they will have much more customers, dedicated customers. I mean, a lot of people (me, for example) won´t buy 360 just to play K3. And also, it would be treason to all the LucasArts PC customers, and I would bet that we are a good bunch of people.

Personaly, I won´t believe it until LucasArts, or the license developer, makes an official announcement.

The article never says that K3 will be XBOX 360 exclusive. It never even mentions what platforms it might be made for. Read the article more carefully and you will see that when it states anything about the XBOX 360 or PS3 in the section, it has transitioned into talking about Mercenaries 3, which is in development by Pandemic. Also, from what we know of the past, K3 will be for both XBOX 360 and PC. I don't think they will change the platform inbetween games of a standing series. It wouldn't be logical. However, I wouldn't put it past Micro$oft to someone twist LucasArts into releasing it as a 360-exclusive game. I don't think it will happen, though.

Also, this article is being condemned because it is IGN's predictions. However, if you take all of the predictions and "we think"s out of it, you can chisle it down to few solid facts that the do know. Or atleast what they claim to know as fact. Try this....

Makes since to me. Notice that this is the stuff they actually know. Not to be confused with what they predicted, which is sorely based on the limited knowledge they do have.

Relax.. KOTOR3 will never be Xbox exclusive. Why limit yourself to a console audience when you can have the console people AND PC people? It wouldn't make sense market-wise... and I believe the original KOTOR was designed exclusively for the PC and then they decided to port it to the Xbox not long after. Remember, the Xbox is really just a PC you can plug controllers into and play through your TV, it wouldn't make sense to not make a PC version.

At this point we don't even know if there WILL be a KOTOR3. We can just assume, since the series is so popular and loved, and I think there will be one but I don't know why IGN would give a prediction on it already being in development without something to back it up.

Oh yeah, and if they did make the combat real-time (not likely), I'd have to send a bunch of hatemail to Obsidian. That is the one thing that drew me to the game and it's just another thing that makes it so much better than the Jedi Knight series!

IGN is mirroring what they see in forums. I noticed that they use words and phrases that came from conversations found at ObsidianEnt and LucasFourms.com. Otherwords, they are only repeating the philosophies and rumors found in the Star Wars community, and they are repackaging it as news.

They are also making 'predoictions'. Predictions are their attempt in telling the future.

Innerfears made some good points there, about K3 not being exclusive to 360. I almost panicked when I read the previous posts about the matter.
I wonder if LA is going to release some information about K3 soon, cause it has already been quite long since they released KotOR II. Do they have any other big projects there at the moment?

Indeed there will be. Essential economics supply and demand law: if people will buy it, someone will do it. It's just as simple as that.

If Kotor 3 comes out for only the X-Box, it will proof they are taking the wrong road. We know Uncle Bill paid them for it then, and they are only there for the cash. On long term, it would destory them.

My conclusion:
Screw Bill! We WILL play Kotor 3!

Hmmm... perhaps a chronological review of KotOR game series release dates is in order?

2003 July 17 - KotOR for XBOX released
2003 November 18 - KotOR for the PC released

2004 December 6 - KotOR II:TSL for XBOX released
2005 February 10 - KotOR II:TSL for PC released

Still think any of the KotOR games were designed exclusively for the PC and then ported to the XBOX?

I definitely hope that any future KotOR games are supported on PC since I do not intend to buy an XBOX 360, PS3, or Revolution. However I suffer no delusions that the PC platform drives video game sales. The big numbers are on the consoles. Those of us who play on PC are just hoping we get to come along for the ride...
