KOTOR II Developer Wants To Pitch Another SW Game

Posted By Eric on April 9, 2013

Feargus Urquhart, the CEO of Obsidian Entertainment, recently emailed Eurogamer.net to express his sadness at seeing LucasArts close down. "LucasArts was a great supporter of Obsidian when we were first starting out," Urquhart wrote, "and many of their games are ones I, personally, count as favourites." He then went on to say this:
"As for Obsidian pitching a Star Wars game, or games for that matter, we would love to. Getting to work within the Star Wars world was a tonne of fun and it would be great to get to do so again."
For context, Eurogamer reminds us that Urquhart spoke about the game he had in mind a few months ago:
Urquhart revealed in February that Obsidian even had new Star Wars pitch that LucasArts had both seen and liked. The pitch sat chronologically between Star Wars films Episode 3 and 4.
Click through to Eurogamer for more information about the game idea.

If Disney wants to move to a licensing-only model for Star Wars games, this is the kind of pitch they should seriously consider. The premise explores a lightly touched area of the Star Wars timeline with a lot of potential, and the pitch is coming from a well-known, popular developer.
