E3 has been chock full of juicy goodies, and here's another for ya: EA chief executive John Riccitiello revealed at the show BioWare is at work on the next Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic game, and it will have an MMO component.
"We've got two of the most compelling MMOs in the industry in development," said Riccitiello. "And the one that people are dying for us to talk to them about -- in partnership with Lucas, coming out of BioWare, which is, I think, quite possibly the most anticipated game, full stop, for the industry at the point when we get closer to telling you about it."
The first one is with the Warhammer franchise, the second, he confirmed, is KOTOR. More than that, it appears to be PC exclusive: the man stated it will "sidestep the consoles owned by Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo."
Speaking more on business, Riccitello boasted, "I think, hands down, there's not a publisher or a platform that's got what we've got." Cocksure, definitely. But just work with the team, EA, don't condone rushed product fueled mostly by crunch time, hey?
