BioWare: All questions about Revan and The Exile will be answered in TOR

If you’ve ever played Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 1 and 2, you know that their endings were a bit… inconclusive. Well, if you could even go so far as to call that Q&A session before KOTOR 2′s credits rolled an ending at all.

So, what happened to player characters Revan and The Exile? Did they smash all the Sith lords? Or did they go on psychotic Force-fueled rampages after you stopped playing the little angel on their shoulder? No one knows. But in Star Wars: The Old Republic, we’ll definitely find out.

“There are going to be a great deal of questions answered from KOTOR 1 and KOTOR 2 in our game,” writing director Daniel Erickson told VG247 in an interview during E3.

“The thing with KOTOR 2 is that it was a very Jedi-specific plot. The Jedi were very much ravaged by it, and we talk about that in the timeline – trying to rebuild the Jedi. But it was not as large a galactic piece. So there are a lot of factions and things that aren’t actually affected by it,” he added when asked about the Obsidian-developed KOTOR 2′s place in the Star Wars canon.

“Also, we’d always worked in the fact that Revan and Malak were, in fact, involved with the Sith emperor himself, and it’s really why we touch back on KOTOR a lot.”

Last but not least, read this whichever way you want, but when asked whether or not Revan and The Exile were still alive, Erickson only replied that he wouldn’t spoil anything. That’s certainly not a “no.”

Fingers crossed, everyone. Here’s hoping all our dreams – and our incredibly elaborate fan fictions – come true.
