Fingers crossed we could be looking at the new KOTOR game. MMO or not? Something's happening in the board room. PLease God, let it be the next KOTOR game. Star Wars-related at least!
A release says that the product, details of which will be unveiled at a later date, will be developed and published by BioWare and LucasArts, and "will push the boundaries of the gaming market by utilising the strengths of both companies to deliver an innovative, high-quality experience."
We're getting dizzy just thinking about it. A KOTOR MMO has been rumoured before, could this be it? Although quite how this fits in with the recent EA buyout of BioWare and Sega's Sonic RPG, we don't know...
"LucasArts has a deep commitment to developing compelling stories and characters for the unique medium of interactive entertainment, and we have been searching for a developer that shares this value. We found this in BioWare," said Jim Ward, president of LucasArts. "Through our previous collaborations, we know that BioWare has an impressive ability to blend gripping stories with technological advancements, and we believe that our upcoming product will deliver an experience that will span the traditional boundaries of video game entertainment."
Greg Zeschuk, president of BioWare, added, "BioWare's mission is to deliver the best story and character-driven games in the world, delivering powerful emotional experiences to our fans. The collaboration with LucasArts allows us to combine our passion for creating high quality and innovative experiences with those of a company dedicated to bringing only the finest games to market."
