As cool as this would be, big time grain of salt on this one. Lucasarts owns the rights to the KOTOR universe, I believe, and Bioware is now owned by EA. I don't know how friendly those two are (for some reason EA might be connected to Force Unleashed, but I don't know where in my mind that came from).

At any rate, this game is only going down if LucasArts is cool with it, and I don't know if they'd want to cannibalize SWG either. Not that SWG is anything that needs to be saved, but still, it's all LucasArts' call now, not Bioware's or EA's.

I have to agree. Lucasarts owns the KOTOR license which I believe is signed exclusively through Activision.

Not that Bioware haven't been through a licensing tangle just like this with Neverwinter Nights and the Forgotten Realms/D&D licensing chains.

I'm not sure why they'd want to get mixed up in that sort of thing again, but at least they have the experience, right?

Does anyone remember when the SOE license for SWG expires? I know that it was at least until 2008.

This gets me excited
