A Star Wars: KOTOR Game Is Reportedly In Development Without EA and BioWare
A new Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic game is reportedly in the works, and it is not being developed by EA and BioWare – the studio behind the original game..As reported by VGC, this latest rumor comes courtesy of credited Star Wars insider Bespin Bulletin, who spoke on a recent B.O.B. The Podcast episode that this project was in development outside of EA and that «we’ll ‘never guess’ who the studio is that’s making this game.”
“Amongst my digging, I heard there is a Knights of the Old Republic project in development somewhere,” Bespin Bulletin said. “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.”Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier has previously spoken of a potential KOTOR project, both on ResetERA and Twitter, and his words echo Bespin Bulletin’s comments.

Furthermore, Wushu Studio’s Nate Najda also took to ResetERA in response to this to say «It’s not as mysterious as you think. It’s just not a household name most people are aware of.»
There have been previous rumors of a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake being in the works at EA, and that it would take elements of the first KOTOR and Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords and retool the two stories to make them fit in current canon. It is unclear whether this is the discussed project that has since been taken away from EA or if it is an entirely new story.
“I don’t know if the bounty hunter game is with them or if it’s with Ubisoft,» Bespin Bulletin said. «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.”
