New Knights of the Old Republic Rumors

VGC reports on a rumor that a new Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic game is in development at a studio outside of Electronic Arts. This is not as surprising as it would have been were it not for the recent news that Ubisoft is working on a Star Wars game, indicating that EA's Force Choke on the franchise is coming to an end. VGC vouches for the sources of this unconfirmed report, including Bespin Bulletin and a previous cryptic comment from Bloomberg's Jason Schreier. Here's what they're saying:
“Amongst my digging, I heard there is a Knights of the Old Republic project in development somewhere,” Bespin Bulletin said. “I talked to a couple of people, and I also found out that Jason Schreier said that it’s not with EA, and we’ll ‘never guess’ who the studio is that’s making this game.”

On broader plans for Star Wars game, the insider said he’d heard that “a bounty hunter game” was being developed somewhere and that EA was working on a “smaller” Star Wars game.

“I don’t know if the bounty hunter game is with them or if it’s with Ubisoft. But yeah, EA is working on stuff and there’s another unannounced [Star Wars] game at EA, which I have no idea what it is. I don’t think it’s Battlefront 3.”

Another person who occasionally shares information on unannounced games, Nate Najda of Wushu Studios, corroborated the claims that a new KoTOR is in development.

On KoTOR’s new developer, Najda wrote: “It’s not as mysterious as you think. It’s just not a household name most people are aware of.”

Out of the Blue

Well after my complaining that both of this weekend's NFL playoff games were later today, it turned out they still were too early, as my waffling about who to pick in the first of the games caused me to miss the opening kickoff. It's probably of no real import, as my best hope was to tie for first place, but that would be through the longest of long-shots. It's still frustrating, but I'll just have to let it go. I was originally going to pick Green Bay, but eventually decided I would take Tampa, so now I'm perversely rooting for Green Bay in order to make my missing the deadline moot.
