BioWare doing LucasArts game

KOTOR duo reunited.

Mass Effect developer BioWare has officially announced a partnership with publisher LucasArts for a new "interactive entertainment product", GamesIndustry.biz reports.

The two companies have worked together before on the well-received Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic role-playing game for Xbox and PC.

"LucasArts has a deep commitment to developing compelling stories and characters for the unique medium of interactive entertainment, and we have been searching for a developer that shares this value," commented Jim Ward, president of LucasArts.

"Through are previous collaborations, we know that BioWare has an impressive ability to blend gripping stories with technological advancements, and we believe that our upcoming product will deliver an experience that will span the traditional boundaries of videogame entertainment."

Last month Electronic Arts acquired BioWare along with Pandemic Studios.

"The collaboration with LucasArts allows us to combine our passion for creating high quality and innovative experiences with those of a company dedicated to bringing only the finest games to market," added Greg Zeschuk, president of BioWare.
