KOTOR 3 to happen at some point 29 Nov, 2006, 22:02 / 0 comments

When it comes to most LucasArts news, it's preferable to let other, more interested sites do the work for us. 1up noticed that in a recent Next-Generation interview with LucasArts (specifically Nancy MacIntyre, VP of global sales and marketing), they more or less reveal their intentions to eventually make a third Knights of the Old Republic installment:
We've also got Star Wars franchises like Knights of the Old Republic ... that we will not leave behind. It's very important to us that we grow those franchises.
Neither Obsidian nor other potential developers for the title are named, but the interview is not devoid of further interesting quotes:
We feel like it's really important to make each Star Wars game an event, she explains. "Our fans want a logical progression of the Star Wars story line, so we are committed to only two Star Wars experiences a year.
Which sounds good for their future catalogue's variety, but recall LucasArts' plan for less overall releases per year, and you may not be left with assurance that the ratio of Star Wars games to original games will dramatically change. Still though, it's not all bad news out of LucasArts anymore and there's the ever present glimmer of hope for original IP (that we might care about) in the company's future.

Thanks to Scummbuddy for the tipoff.
