Sources tell podcaster Bespin Bulletin that a new KOTOR game is happening, but BioWare won't be making it. The game is instead being crafted by a not-so-obvious studio as part of Lucasfilm Games' new Star Wars initiative.

Bloomberg's Jason Schreier, who has a close ear to the goings-on in the games industry, said in December 2020 that "nobody's going to guess right" about who's developing the sequel.

A bit ago, Lucasfilm Games announced the Star Wars license is now open for other studios besides EA. Ubisoft Massive, the team behind The Division games, is making a new open-world Star Wars title centered around strong characters and story. EA is also working on a handful of new Star Wars projects, and one of them is believed to be Battlefront 3.

"Amongst my digging, I heard there is a Knights of the Old Republic project in development somewhere. I talked to a couple of people, and I also found out that Jason Schreier said that it's not with EA, and we'll 'never guess' who the studio is that's making this game," Bespin Bulletin said in the podcast.

Right now BioWare is tremendously busy with a new next-gen Dragon Age game, another Mass Effect sequel, and Anthem's planned revival.
