KOTOR MMO has “potential” for action figures and comic book licensing

BioWare’s Star Wars: The Old Republic could well turn into a licensing juggernaut, if comments made to VG247 by LucasArts are anything to go by.

“We are looking forward to working with our partners in LucasFilm, that have worked with us previously on KOTOR in bringing the comic books to life, and action figures, and all kinds of things,” said LucasArts online boss Tom Nichols.

“I think the potential is there for us to have similar types of products and extensions from our licensing partners as well.”

The game itself is undated at the moment, and is likely to be a good way off. So, whether or not those “extensions” could mean actual new KOTOR game spin-offs is far into the murky future as yet.

“Boy, we haven’t thought that far,” Nichols laughed.
