Its very early days at the moment,but i couldn't help it,had to post

Obsidian want to pitch a new Star Wars game to Disney

here is Eurogamers article on the story

Knights of the Old Republic 2 developer Obsidian wants to pitch a new Star Wars game to new Star Wars owner Disney.

Obsidian boss Feargus Urquhart told Rock, Paper, Shotgun that this was "one of my next big things to do".

What pitch is that, exactly?

"We pitched a between-Episode-3-and-Episode-4 game [to LucasArts]. Because we think that timeframe is super interesting," Urquhart said. "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.

"We also latched onto it because it has elements people remember, but not the stories. It can just completely not involve [the movies]. It can tease them, but nothing else."

And ain't that a relief. Urquhart reckons it was Obsidian's best ever pitches, and LucasArts pre-Disney was impressed and wanted to talk.

BioWare, creator of Knights of the Old Republic, dashed our hopes of another single-player KOTOR game when Star Wars: The Old Republic was announced. This was to be an MMO containing so much story content it would effectively be Knights of The Old Republic three, four, five, six and so on, we were led to believe.

But then it launched and then it struggled and now it hasn't conquered the world, so is the KOTOR door back open? When Disney bought LucasArts it said it would "focus more on social and mobile than we are on console". Still, Disney needn't necessarily publish Obsidian's Star Wars so much as licence the IP.

Obsidian made Knights of the Old Republic 2, a deeper and more complex game than the original, but also unfinished. Such was the fan following, however, that the community finished developing the game itself.

Did Disney really say that as well? >>>"focus more on social and mobile than we are on console"

Having just played KOTOR 2 and enjoying it much more this time around,i would love to see Obsidian have a go at another Star Wars or KOTOR title

but,as long as it's still a proper RPG....I can't be doing with another Force Unleashed type game,i am not that interested in 1313 because it looks like another Force Unleashed type game..I want Star Wars RPGs!!!

I'm all for another Star Wars RPG if they ditch the hopeless d20 system, a system that feels completely tacked on to the setting. Luke Skywalker as a Scoundrel 3 / Ace Pilot 6 / Jedi Knight 10 or whatever just doesn't scream Star Wars to me. Hopefully Obsidian would be confident enough in their own abilities to separate that system from the setting.

I'll believe this when it's released.
