Obsidian, who tried to finish Knights of the Old Republic II before Lucasarts force them to release it, is pitching a new Star Wars RPG to Lucasarts. The revelation came in an interview with Rock Paper Shotgun, where they discuss how it won’t be set during the KOTOR time period due to The Old Republic flopping, but instead is set between Episodes III and IV:
“We pitched a between-Episode III and Episode IV game [to LucasArts]. 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. 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.”
Unfortunately, the people running Lucasarts right now who are idiots who cancel fully completed games; so it’ll take a miracle for this game to come out.
