Rumor: BioWare "Prototyping" Knights of the Old Republic Reboot

Is it weird how it took us this long to hear about a potentially new, standalone Knights of the Old Republic game? BioWare Austin, the studio behind Star Wars: The Old Republic, is supposedly working on a new KOTOR that began as a remake of the original but spiraled into something else. If true, this is great news for those who are sick of the MMO.

This bit of information comes by way of gaming journalist Liam Robertson, who discussed the topic recently on his Patreon page. Note that as Robertson did not reveal his source(s), this falls very much into the "rumor category" for the time being. "I’ve learned now that [BioWare Austin is] pretty much now exclusively working on Star Wars games and they’re going to be doing that for the indefinite future," he said during a podcast segment. "What they’re currently working on right nowآ—and I have this on good authorityآ—is a sort of remake/revival of Knights of the Old Republic. I don’t know when this is set to come out, but it has been in development for a little while now."
