If you enjoyed Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II and hate Electronic Arts, then this next sentence should make your heart flutter: Obsidian Entertainment the studio that gave us Fallout: New Vegas and an unfinished KOTOR II have pitched another Star Wars role-playing game set between Episodes III and IV.
Even with the recent change in ownership of Star Wars, (and despite the change in ownership of Obsidian’s other major project — South Park: The Stick of Truth) the studio’s boss believes it may yet have a shot.
“We pitched a between-Episode III and Episode IV game,” CEO Feargus Urquhart told Rock, Paper, Shotgun. “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.
“It has elements people remember, but not the stories,” he told RPS. He called it one of “the top three pitches,” the studio has ever come up with. That said, they’ve not gotten any go-ahead from Disney, nor spoken to them.
