BioWare’s Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and its Obsidian-developed sequel are among the most highly regarded Star Wars games of all time (the former is widely considered among the best RPGs ever made, in fact), and there’s ben no shortage of wishes and requests of a third game in the series over the years. According to several sources, it seems a new KOTOR game might actually be in the works. 

Star Wars insider Bespin Bulletin, who has credibly leaked information on Star Wars in the past, recently claimed in a podcast that a new Knights of the Old Republic game is in development (via VGC). Interestingly enough, the game is in development at a studio outside of EA. This follows the recent announcement by Lucasfilm Games that the Star Wars license will no longer be held exclusively by EA, with Ubisoft also working on an open world game based on the property (though EA is still working on a number of Star Wars games as well).

Meanwhile, other reputable sources have also chimed in on the rumour of late. Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier suggested on ResetEra that nobody would be able to guess the studio that’s developing the game. Insider shinobi602 also said on the forum that the studio is “not as mysterious as you think”, adding that it’s “just not a household name most people are aware of.”

A report in early 2020 said that a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic reimagining was in development, and that it would pull in elements from both previous games to bring them into the new Star Wars canon. Read more on that through here.

As with any leak and unverified rumour, take this with a grain of salt for now. Definitely keep your fingers crossed though- I sure do.
