The team behind Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II – The Sith Lords could very well be back in the saddle if Obisidan’s CEO has his way. Speaking to Eurogamer, Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart revealed that they were still keen on talking to Disney in the wake of LucasArts’ closure.
“I had seen the news about LucasArts which was sad to see,” said Urquhart. “LucasArts was a great supporter of Obsidian when we were first starting out and many of their games are ones I, personally, count as favourites.
“As for Obsidian pitching a Star Wars game, or games for that matter, we would love to. Getting to work within the Star Wars world was a tonne of fun and it would be great to get to do so again.”
In February, Obsidian revealed that they were keen to do a new Star Wars game, and were waiting with a pitch ready for the dust to settle on the LucasArts closure. The time, it seems, has arrived — although the circumstances in which it happened are certainly not what anybody was hoping for.
