Casey Hudson tweets about what the core team is up to these days.
Bioware has effectively wrapped up Commander Shepard’s journey with the first three Mass Effect titles, and while it is currently working on a new title in the franchise, executive producer Casey Hudson revealed on Twitter that the core team responsible for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is currently working on a new IP.
Most of our core team that worked on SWKOTOR has been together throughout the Mass Effect series, and now our new IP project. #KOTOR10

Bioware Edmonton senior producer Jonathan Warner also tweeted about the same, speaking about the first project review for the new IP. This would indicate that it’s been in the works for a while now.
A successful first project review for our new IP project today. Life is good!

Is it likely that this will be a new title in the Star Wars universe, with an IP that is separate from the KOTOR brand? EA is currently signed to a multi-year deal with Disney under which its studios will develop Star Wars-based games using Frostbite 3. Along with DICE and Visceral Games, Bioware was also stated to be working on a project.
