Our friends at the Polish fan site, Imperial City Online, have just posted the English version of a new interview with Drew Karpyshyn as he talks Mass Effect 2, Star Wars and the fact that he is unaware of a KOTOR 3. See below for an excerpt and click here for the full interview.
Your Star Wars novels are commonly regarded as very dark and not quite suitable for young readers. In your opinion, how does this affect the Star Wars world as a whole, which according to George Lucas is primarily directed towards a younger audience?
I think as fans of Star Wars have grown up, we've been looking for something that has grown with us. Many of the novels are more "adult" than the movies, because it gives older fans of the series a way to continue to be a part of the universe. A more mature audience will want a more complex and mature setting, and the novels (and even games like KOTOR) have helped to build that into the Star Wars universe.
You told us the story of one of the most important Sith Lords in Star Wars history, and you also helped shape the fascinating world of KOTOR. However, "the past" in the Star Wars universe is still full of blank areas. Are you planning on exploring any new and previously untouched eras?
I would like to explore more stories in lesser known historical Star Wars time frames, but right now I don't have anything official in the works. If something ever does come up I would jump at the chance.
We know that you are currently working on Mass Effect 2, but our readers would be quite disappointed, if we did not ask you this one question - is there currently any work underway concerning KOTOR 3?
Sorry, but all my time right now is focused on Mass Effect 2. As far as I know, there are no plans in the work for KOTOR 3.
