As several sources confirm, a new chapter in the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic saga is in fact in the works. A previously unnamed studio is responsible for the development.
In the past, the rumor kept coming up that a new Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic title was being worked on behind the scenes.
The rumors don’t want to die down in the new year either. Several sources are currently reporting that a new Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is indeed in the works – including the Star Wars insider Bespin Bulletin, who is considered a reliable source. As reported in a recent podcast, an unspecified studio that is not affiliated with Electronic Arts is working on the project.
Since EA is not supposed to be responsible for the new Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic adventure, it will probably appear in 2023 at the earliest, when the corresponding exclusive deal between EA and Disney ends. Furthermore, Bespin Bulletin would like to know that a Star Wars title is being worked on with a bounty hunter and a smaller Star Wars project that is being developed at EA.
“Amongst my digging, I heard there is a Knights of the Old Republic project in development somewhere. 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,” according to Bespin Bulletin.
The insider continued: “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.”
Nate Najda of Wushu Studios, who occasionally talks about unannounced games, also points out that a new Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is in development. However, the current rumors have not yet been officially commented on or even confirmed.
