Obsidian Still Wants A Chance with Kotor III

Since 2004, Obsidian Entertainment, the creative studio behind Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords has stated their interest in created a third game in series. When Bioware and Lucasarts announced their MMO The Old Republic, fans figured they would have to settle with that being “Kotor 3, 4,5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10.”

Well, that’s not exactly true; not if Obsidian’s CEO Feargus Urquhart has his way with things. In an interview recently with GameBanshee, Urquhart replied to being asked if he thought there would ever be a “true” Kotor III by saying,

I don’t really know. A part of me hopes that there will be, because I think we can do things in the more single player story based RPGs that you just can’t do in an MMORPG. Like I said, I really hope that there is one, with BioWare busy on the MMO; I hope LucasArts gives us a shot at making KotOR III.

Not a surprise there, really. Obsidian and Lucasarts both have acknowledge faults in timing for Kotor II, and many think, if time had been given, both could have made Kotor II better and more complete.
