Obsidian Entertainment, the developers of the critically acclaimed Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II, ‘would love’ to create a sequel for the game, it has today confirmed.
During a Reddit ‘Ask Me Anything’ (AMA) session held earlier, the studio also expressed similar enthusiasm about returning to Bethesda’s Fallout series, having previously developed 2010’s Fallout: New Vegas.
When questioned on the possibility of the California-based developer working on Knights of the Old Republic III, Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart joked: “If you could pitch EA on that for us, I’d be your friend for life,” while social media manager Mikey Dowling added: “The title is out of our hands as EA has the license for the games. We’d love to return to the galaxy far, far away if we had the chance!”
Curiously, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 3 was originally being developed in-house at LucasArts around the time of the second game’s release, although it was ultimately cancelled as part of wide-ranging cuts in the company.
Meanwhile, in response to a question on whether Obsidian had been contracted to work on the next title in Bethesda’s Fallout series, Uquhart stated: “We are not, but we would love to work on another Fallout… It was awesome to make Fallout: New Vegas, as it was to work on Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 as well.”
