How long have KOTOR fans been talking about a new game? Over the years, we've heard a lot of talk of BioWare making a new KOTOR game the fans would love to see it happen. But now, EA has the contract on all Star Wars games and it doesn't seem like its in the cards.

BioWare has supposedly asked EA multiple times for permission to make a new KOTOR game.

"They've tried to make it happen, more than once from what I've heard," says Kotaku's Jason Schreier on Twitter in response to a question about BioWare making another KOTOR game. "No luck."

Ugh, shot down again!

That seems to be par for the course when it comes to a new KOTOR, but is there more to this tweet? There's a story on DenofGeek about it that breaks it all down for us.

"On its own, there's not much information there, but there is more to this story. First off, Jason Schreier has been a reliable source for years when it comes to reporting on what's happening at various video game studios. He's also responsible for that recent report that sheds some light on why the EA era of Star Wars games has been disastrous thus far

He's also one of the people who previously stated that those reports which suggested BioWare is actively working on a new KOTOR game are mostly false. It seems that there was a point when BioWare had pitched the idea of a new KOTOR to the higher-ups at EA (and possibly worked on some kind of pitch for the game that might have included tech demos), but they never actually began work on such a project in earnest. "

They go on to talk about the big question: Why is EA denying them the right to do the game, especially when the fans obviously want it?
