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."

Lucas had a lot of really fun ideas, and created a really good base setting with Star Wars, but he's just one man. He let the success go to his head, and apparently surrounded himself with yes-men who wouldn't challenge his ideas. That's the kind of character flaw that becomes a creative flaw. Unless he was just so much more strong-willed than anyone else he ran into, an impression he's never given me.

By the time the prequels came around, fuggedaboutit; the Jedi were utterly unconvincing as galactic cops, Rangers of the North, what have you. What possible difference could that tiny flea circus have made on a galactic scale? They carried around laser-swords, FFS. Leverage being what it is, Luke had the right idea; use the Force to use a cutting-edge fighter to hit the Death Star in its weak point. We should've seen a lot more of that from the Jedi.
