Obsidian’s Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 3

Knights of the Old Republic, KOTOR, is one of the most popular Star Wars games to date. Fans of the series have been waiting for a KOTOR 3 that sadly, will never be.

Once KOTOR 2 was wrapped up, Obsidian was all set to make a third game in the franchise, but it never came to pass.

Speaking to Chris Avellone at Reboot Develop, Kirk McKeand from vg247.com asked if Obsidian ever had a story planned for Knights of The Old Republic 3, and it did. Here’s the basic premise, in Avellone’s words:

“When we finished the second one we were all trying to restore our lives back to sanity,” Avellone remembers. “We did start working on the third game pitch, because we always imagined the trilogy. Even when working on the second game, we [tried] to foreshadow what Darth Revan was doing in the second game, and he wasn’t always just ruthlessly and mindlessly blowing everything up. He actually had a larger plan because there was some greater manipulation and threat going on.

They also talked about why the third game never happened and honestly, no one seems to know exactly why.

You can read more of this interview at the link above, but he goes on to talk about what KOTOR 3 involved, the story that you would go through as you’re playing the game, and what the “monsters” or enemies would be.

If you want to see more Avellone Star Wars stories, he’s currently working on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, along with five other narrative designers.
