Riccitiello confirms KOTOR MMO from BioWare
EA boss John Riccitiello confirmed at E3 today that BioWare’s working on a new Knights of the old Republic game with an MMO “component” to it.
The project has been heavily rumoured for some time.
“We’ve got two of the most compelling MMOs in the industry in development,” said Riccitiello.
“The first title, based on the Warhammer property, will launch soon.
“And the one that people are dying for us to talk to them about – in partnership with Lucas, coming out of BioWare, which is, I think, quite possibly the most anticipated game, full stop, for the industry at the point when we get closer to telling you about it.”
He was then asked if the game was Knights of the old Republic and his response was a resounding, “Yes.”
That’s the kind of megaton we’ve been waiting for. Thanks, Portfolio.
