KOTOR Reboot & New BioWare IP Rumors

SWGameOutpost has a word of a premium Patreon rumor (of all things) suggesting BioWare is currently prototyping a KOTOR reboot (thanks GameSpot). This comes from Liam Robertson of Unseen64 and Did You Know Gaming, and IBT highlights another tidbit from the same podcast, discussing a new IP codenamed "Dylan" (thanks VG247). "Dylan is, from what I understand, a sci-fi themed game, it is sort of Destiny-style, takes some elements from The Division, it has like MMO elements," he explains. "Someone described it as a 'semi-MMO'. I don't know much more than that... it is a huge scale project, perhaps the biggest BioWare has ever done. It's bigger than Mass Effect Andromeda, considerably so. It will have co-op." Back to the first rumor, here's a transcript of the KOTOR bit:
"I’ve learned now that [BioWare Austin is] pretty much now exclusively working on Star Wars games and they’re going to be doing that for the indefinite future," he said during a podcast segment. "What they’re currently working on right now—and I have this on good authority—is a sort of remake/revival of Knights of the Old Republic. I don’t know when this is set to come out, but it has been in development for a little while now."

The phrases "semi-MMO" and "Destiny-style" just turned this radar blip into an unimportant anomaly. If they can't do KoToR 3 properly without introducing a bunch of grinding casual filler, then my fucks to give are quickly running out when it comes to "BioWare" products. It being 'bigger' than Andromeda also is a poor selling point when all that amounts to is wastes of space and the trashy MMO quests that go with them.

Now - whatever Edmonton doing is doing in secret, that's the only Bioware thing I have left to be curious about.

I think those mmo-things are discussing a different IP/game:

Sadly I don't hold much hope for the KOTOR-reboot either. The fantastic team that made that game is long gone. Or maybe we'll all be pleasantly surprised? It's sad that so many of us are pessimistic of rebooted IPs right out the gate, we should give the game a chance, but I refuse to let myself be hyped anymore by brand name recognition.

Old school Bioware is long gone. Whatever they make will be mass marketable mediocrity.

The fact that they think a semi-MMO is a good idea is enough of warning sign to me.

*Pours out a 40oz* So long, Bioware. I'll always remember BG1/2, DA:O.

If true, hopefully this is where the actual talent was while the C team worked on ME:A
