The game is allegedly handled not by one of the EA studios, but by another gaming company.
Star Wars insider Bespin Bulletin – supposed to be credible – claims another Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic is in the works. This is allegedly not a remake of one of the first games in the series, but a completely new project.
The development, according to the insider, is not being done by one of EA’s internal studios, but by a third-party company. It’s possible: EA no longer has an exclusive license for Star Wars games, at least one game in this world is made by Ubisoft .
Bespin Bulletin has no project details. This is believed to be just one of the new Star Wars games launched: there is also a bounty hunter project and a smaller game that Electronic Arts is working on.
In addition, Video Games Chronicles notes that the existence of the new Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic is confirmed by shinobi602, known for his connections in the gaming industry. He did not go into details either.
Rumors of a sequel to Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic have been surfacing from time to time for several years now. The last time a journalist and insider Jason Schreyer spoke about such a game: almost a year ago he wrote that if the game is in development, it is not Electronic Arts that does it.
