Sequels

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords was developed by a different studio, Obsidian Entertainment, using an improved version of the engine from the first game. It was released for Xbox in December 2004 and PC in February 2005. Obsidian has also expressed desires to make another sequel, as has LucasArts. However, no plans have been made in making another Knights of the Old Republic game, although representatives from LucasArts have said that they will not abandon the "franchise."

In a March 2007 interview with the owners of LucasArts Fan network, conducted by a Knights of the Old Republic fansite, owner "Aristotle" commented to "stay tuned" for a third Knights of the Old Republic.

Electronic Gaming Monthly reports in the rumors section of its May 2007 issue that BioWare has hired an online team for work on a massively multiplayer online role-playing game based on Knights of the Old Republic.[1]

Trivia

  • Revan's mask strikingly resembles that of Mandalorian Neo-Crusader helmets.
  • The quest called "Finding Nemo" is a reference to the Pixar movie, Finding Nemo.
  • The quest "The Trouble with Gizka" is likely a reference to the Star Trek episode entitled "The Trouble with Tribbles". Also, HK-47's line "Dammit, master, I'm an assassination droid, not a dictionary!" is similar to Dr. McCoy's frequent catch-phrase from the series.
