LucasArts and BioWare team-up!

biowarelogoIf the news of EA purchasing Pandemic and BioWare is still rocketing around in your brain, then this news of another deal will make you happy. Thanks to the launch of its site and an email in my inbox, LucasArts announced a deal with BioWare to create a new game.

Well, I use the term "game" loosely since the press release refers to "an interactive entertainment product"; I don’t want to refer to games as "interactive entertainment products" in the foreseeable future.

Anyways, the deal sounds great; but combine it with our story of the long rumored Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic MMORPG and you got an even heftier story!

As you know, BioWare hit a homerun with the first KotOR in 2003. Since LucasArts retains the usage of the KotOR license and wanted to crank out another game by the next year’s holiday season, they hired Obsidian Entertainment to handle KotOR II.

Well, it’s close to being 3 years since, so with that said along with more substantial news of the new deal, I wouldn’t be surprised if there really is a KotOR MMORPG, or just a single-player RPG KotOR III.
