Obsidian To Pitch New Star Wars RPG To Disney

By  | 

If you are a fan of Star Wars then you could have so much more to look ahead to other than a new film trilogy as developers of Knights of the Old Republic II are pitching a Star Wars RPG to LucasArts and are waiting to pitch it to Disney at the right time.

The CEO of Obsidian has revealed that he has a lot of confidence in the potential project. He said that a game could be the bridge between the gap of Revenge of Sith and A New Hope. He said

“We pitched a between-Episode III and Episode IV game [to LucasArts]. Because we think that timeframe is super interesting. It’s the fall of the Republic, the extermination of the Jedi, it’s Obi-Wan going off and making sure Luke is OK. You have the Sith, but you have the extermination of all Force users except for very, very few. So it was an interesting time to set a game, and you know, Chris Avellone came up with a really cool story.”

He also said that things had gone well and that Lucas Arts were interested before Disney could have the chance to buy up the rights to the license. This is great news for those who are looking for signs of a Star Wars game coming out. However it doesn’t mean that the project will get approval.

EA have been having issues with The Old Republic. Disney also shot down Junction Point earlier in the month, this means they might be very vary of development of a Stars Wars game, along with being tired of the video game market overall.

A new Star Wars RPG could become a license to print money, so Disney may know that they would be onto a good thing with the development of at RPG.

For now we will have to wait and see what happens when it is passed on to Disney. So how would you feel about a Stars Wars game?
