Sega CEO Hajime Satomi says he wants to improve the quality of their games moving forward. That could mean a lot of things. It's nice to hear, but what they do next with their games is the real answer.
Obsidian: Knights of The Old Republic 3 A Possibility
Developer Obsidian, known for Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords and South Park: The Stick of Truth, has revealed that the company still discusses a potential third entry in its Star Wars Knights RPG series.
While speaking with IGN, Pillars of Eternity’s project director Josh Sawyer and lead producer Brandon Adler explained that the studio is filled with Star Wars fans, many of whom constantly throw out ideas for KOTOR 3.
“I think there are a lot of the people at the studio that would like to do Knights of the Old Republic 3,” Sawyer says. “I think at that time LucasArts was really focused on what they considered to be extreme, extreme blockbusters and even though the Knights of the Old Republic series was pretty successful, it just never seemed like something that was going to happen at that time. Having said that, a lot of time has passed. I know there are a lot of people at the studio who are really interested in doing a project like that.”
“It’s something that comes up every three to six months,” Adler added. “We bring it up and talk about it. Not anything terribly serious, but we just say ‘wouldn’t it be cool if?’ and just develop some ideas for what we’d do with that stuff.”
This might come as a surprise considering the fact that Bioware’s MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic did not fare so well financially. But if the studio still maintains an unfiltered passion for the series, it would be silly to rule anything out.
