BioWare delays SWTOR 5.2 for a week, might be working on KOTOR 3 and a ‘semi-MMO’
The studio said that the delay was due to a quality issue with the update: “At this point in time, we are not satisfied with the quality of the Iokath update. For that reason, we are delaying the release of 5.2 by one week, to release on April 18th. This allows the team more time to make improvements to address some of the issues still pending.”
And as one Old Republic game sees a delay, another might be forthcoming. Scuttlebutt this week is that BioWare Edmonton is working on a Knights of the Old Republic game. The rumor’s source said that it is unclear whether this is a remake of the original, a revival of the franchise, or something else entirely, but that BioWare is currently working on Star Wars games exclusively.
The new Star Wars game appears to be different from another co-op game with a new IP discussed as part of the same leak, which one of the sources “described […] as a ‘semi-MMO’,” according to the journalist who broke the story, Liam Robertson. Expect more details at E3.
