KOTOR 3 will be a next gen title, maybe even an Xbox 2 launch title, and most likely announced at this years E3. But who do you want/think to make the game, cosidering Bioware finished Jade Empire and Obsidian has put all whole new crew together.

Bioware makes great games, but they also have plenty of time...

It took 13 months for Obsidian to make K2 which is crazy... If only they had a little more time :blink:

 

So I'm gonna vote for Obsidian.

LA dropped KotOR III and the people from it's dev team was either transferred to other projects or canned.

 

As far as I know, No project has ever been restarted after been but "on hold".

 

Voted->

 

Other - (Please State)

 

meaning, No one.

 

We're better off without KotOR III, KotOR II was bad enough.

 

Just My Opinion, fell free to have yours.

Perhaps an expansion pack to include alot of the missing content perhaps and a new story to tie them in plus addition content.

Obsidian should make long and complicated storyline with unexpected suspence.

 

Bioware should make game engine and all locations (Taris was greater than Telos admit)

 

Industrial Light and Magic should make all cutscenes and movies.

 

Skywalker Sound should make all ambient sounds.

 

Michael Hoenig (Baldur's Gate series) or maybe even John Williams Himself should compose soundtrack.

 

The game should gone gold in 2008 for xbox2 and PC of course.

 

All these elements taken together, should provide gamers with the greatest game that was ever made.

 

But it's all nur-ab-sal-made science-fiction of course :( . KOTOR III will probably appear on shelves in mid-2006 with cheesy story, clumsy cutscenes, bugs, Revan as a god-savior and same aurora engine... :)

That is the way GL is making his outstanding movies.

 

Besides 2008 release date is most important. The time you know...

True,but there's A LOT more money in the movie business, than there's in videogame business.

Actually, I don't

they made an rpg superior to most others in half the time, that has to count for something

 

if they had an extra 2- 4 months, tsl would have been perfect and would have surpassed its predecessor as a game as well an an rpg

I voted Obsidian. If they hadn't cut all of that stuff about your characters in the end, this game would have been as good as the first IMO. I say Obsidian should take another go at it. With some more time, I know they could come up a good storyline for a KOTOR 3.

 

I loved KOTOR and KOTOR 2. Finally a game that I was looking for. I didn't want a game where it was just push the button as fast as you could to see who could get more hits on the other person. Not only that, but the lightsaber and sword duels were the most realistic looking that I have seen in a game to date. Not only this, but after the ending of KOTOR 2, I would like a little bit of closure.

 

On a side note. I liked that stuff about the "True Sith". It adds to the game and gives you a new perspective on what you view the Sith as.

That sounds good to me. I'll buy it no matter who makes it, but I think Obsidian should try again. Bioware is moving away from franchises.

Black Isle's gone budy, Obsidian's the closest thing, and that's reason enough to encourage them by buying their products.

I know that. But I still wish to see one final game made by them. Fallout series, Baldur's Gate Series, Planescape: Torment. Aaah... the memories. :thumbsup:

 

What? I'm allowed to dream!

Yay, Obsidian! We believe in you!

 

*Curse you, Lucas Arts!*

 

[/childish ranting]

 

Basically what I just said... OE is made from great people, and the game was great. It could have been much better if LA didn't try to muscle in before X-Mas, but... LA interior jobs usually stink.

I voted for Obsidian. Let's give them another chance ...and more time. :blink:

 

By the way: I thought you guys choose BioWare or "Other", I'm shocked that most of you chose Obsidian! :devil:

Unfortunately, as there's no way to extricate Lucasarts from the KotOR 3 development process, I really don't care what happens to it.

 

My disgust with the official Star Wars franchise business at this point is sufficient to quite honestly hope that Lucasarts develops it internally and it's an abysmal, horrific, disasterous failure. Why hope for the success of this franchise, when other franchises don't have such money-hungry morons at the helm? There are lots of franchises to choose from out there. I don't feel the need to root for one with such terrible management when there are lots of other options.

 

But such a failure harming the franchise business isn't really likely. They've proven they can sell garbage merch and garbage movies for wads of cash. They'll presumably continue to do so if they sell garbage games with garbage product support. Lucasarts could release Pong of the Old Republic, in which two monochrome "lightsabers" bounce a square "blaster bolt" back and forth across the screen, and it would sell like hotcakes.

 

My hopes for RPGs lie elsewhere. I want to see what the guys at Bioware and Obsidian and Bethesda have in their futures, but I think any of them being subjected to Lucasarts' interventions would only be a detrimental influence.

 

Perhaps my one hope might be for the possibility of Bioware developing KotOR III, not because I think they, necessarily, are the most talented, but because their prestige and importance in the industry is such that Lucasarts asinine attempts to impose destructive dev schedules (this was not their only one-year dev schedule) and ham-fisted interventions could not authoritatively assert themselves so as to destroy the project if Bioware asserted their own authority.

In a perfect world, Bioware and Obsidian would join forces and develop the game together. Create a fitting and worthy ending to the current era and story of K1 and K2, put in all of the wonderful things everyone has been asking to see in a KotOR game and they'd make 3 different interconnected campaigns one where you play as Revan, one as the Exile and one as an yet to be identified noob so that everyone could be happy and play with who they want to play.

 

Of course we live nowhere near this world so I really don't know. K2 was left in nowhere so only Obsidian knows where they wanted to take the game and I would be very skeptical for a new company to come in to fill in where they left off. So I have that inclination towards Obsidian, Bioware is tried and true so I'd have no complaints from them doing it either, oh but to dream of a collaboration between the two that'd be nice.

 

Too bad, the way things are I'd settle for just an expansion pack like Throne of Bhaal to wrap up K2 and not have to depend on a K3 that might not ever come. Time will tell I guess.
