[Kotaku] LucasArts Layoff, KOTOR 3 and other projects.

Ex-Lucasarts Staffer Talks KOTOR 3, More Indy, Wii Lightsaber Game

Information related to the LucasArts layoffs, as well as rumors regarding current projects (Im terribly sorry if this isnt news, by the way), but considering the amount of "rumors" regarding KOTOR 3 and the BioWare MMO, it might be worth taking a look at.

Quote:
Most interesting, however, is the information they provide on how the layoffs leave the company severely short-staffed as they approach a packed development schedule, one which it appears may be increasingly outsourced. Some of the titles they report Lucasarts apparently have in this stacked pipeline, whether as publisher or developer, include:

- KOTOR 3 (They say it's an MMO: most likely a joint project between Lucasarts and BioWare)
- Battlefront 3 (which we've already heard about)
- "The Official Indiana Jones" game (probably this one)
- "another LEGO game based on the Indy universe"
- "a lightsaber game for the wii (sorry, no lightsaber peripherals)"

Interesting, although disappointingly little information on KOTOR 3. With the instability @ LucasArts, I don't think we'll be seeing this for at least another 2-3 years. =[

If you have KOTOR 2 for PC, you might want to take a look at this. It's only a couple betas away from public release. Adds lots of cut content.

Hey Lucas, maybe you could pay me and a few of the layed-off ones to turn this into a regular animated series..

I have KOTOR 1. I've heard that KOTOR 2 is worse, and has some glitches/bad story/short gameplay/etc.
Plus it only cost me 9.99.

Aside from the blitz-style lay offs the most interesting thing i noticed was the mention of KOTOR 3 being an MMO - if thats the case, it means the "next-gen BioWare/Lucasarts" title is the MMO being developed in Austin. Again im sure lots of people jumped on the opportunity to send out fake mails claiming to be one of the fired, in any case its still interesting.

I'll be very disappointed if KOTOR 3 turns out to be a MMO. They should really just make it an RPG like the first two--they were great games (KOTOR 2 would have been MUCH better if Obsidian had been given another six-nine months to complete the game--on par with KOTOR 1 even).

I've also heard a rumor that there will be a MMO KOTOR 3 and an RPG KOTOR 3; two different projects. Weird!
