“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.
