News: A new Star Wars MMORPG? KOTOR3? Hopefully we'll find out soon.



LucasArts and BioWare announced today they have signed a deal to jointly create an "interactive entertainment product." While that sounds very mysterious, the rumor mill has been buzzing about a LucasArts/BioWare hookup for a while now.

The two popular theories are...
  • LucasArts has contracted BioWare to create Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 3 (BioWare developed the original KOTOR).
  • The unannounced MMORPG BioWare is working on will be set in the Star Wars universe.



    Of course, when announcing the deal, executives from neither company felt like getting specific:

    "LucasArts has a deep commitment to developing compelling stories and characters for the unique medium of interactive entertainment, and we have been searching for a developer that shares this value. We found this in BioWare," said Jim Ward, president of LucasArts. "Through our previous collaborations, we know that BioWare has an impressive ability to blend gripping stories with technological advancements, and we believe that our upcoming product will deliver an experience that will span the traditional boundaries of video game entertainment."

    "BioWare's mission is to deliver the best story and character-driven games in the world, delivering powerful emotional experiences to our fans." said Ray Muzyka, chief executive officer, BioWare Corp. Added Greg Zeschuk, president of BioWare Corp., "The collaboration with LucasArts allows us to combine our passion for creating high quality and innovative experiences with those of a company dedicated to bringing only the finest games to market."

    It also remains to be seen what effect EA's recent acquisition of BioWare will have on this deal.

    Hopefully, we'll have more soon.
