RPG specialist Bioware, whose work includes Jade Empire and Mass Effect, is working on a new MMO based on one its best loved franchises, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic.

Billed as sequel to Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II The Sith Lords, the new Star Wars MMO was revealed casually by John Riccitiello, CEO of Electronic Arts, who will be working on the new title alongside Lucas Arts and Bioware.

"We've got two of the most compelling MMOs in the industry in development,"Riccitiello told Conde Nast Portfolio magazine. "The first title, based on the Warhammer property, will launch soon. And the one that people are dying for us to talk to them about in partnership with Lucas [Arts is] coming out of BioWare, which is, I think, quite possibly the most anticipated game, full stop, for the industry."

In a bid to further strengthen its position in the industry, Electronic Arts acquired Bioware in 2007 and with its talented RPG team at the helm we're expecting them to produce a far better effort than the most recent Star Wars MMO, SOE's Star Wars Galaxies.

Now that the cat's been let out of the bag, we're expecting more information from Bioware very shortly. Source :: Shack News (Thanks Ferral)

About time to!!

This rumour has been floating about for ages now, at least they have finally confirmed it. Hope that they do it without a fee like Guild Wars.

Great that Bioware are doing it also. In my eyes these guys know RPG's and know what their players want.
Loved the first KOTOR, not so keen on the second. Loved Jade empire. Didn't like Mass Effect.

So the next one from Bioware I should love, i hope!
I like the spurious logic there Steve :O_o1:

Works in the same way as the Star Trek films, first one was great the it literally went good, bad throughout the entire run of films.

Hopefully Enterprise when released will be excellent.

Dragon Age: Origins then. And yeah, it looks ace so far :D
KOTOR was one of the most awe-inspiring rpgs I've ever played, let's hope this does it justice!
