EA rubbishes 'new KOTOR' reports

Says information was misinterpreted.

EA has rubbished recent reports that a new Knights of the Old Republic game is in development at Bioware.

News broke earlier this week (which we and many others eagerly reported) that a recent presentation to analysts by EA CEO John Riccitiello referred to a Knights of the Old Republic game.

The slide in question, called "Best Creative Talent", also mentioned Black, Boogie and Skate, among others.

However, EA has now told Eurogamer that those references "speak to past portfolio releases and the pedigree of the studio but do not specifically address future sequels".

"The MMO in development at Bioware Austin is listed a 'New MMO'. We apologise for any confusion this may have caused," a spokesperson added.

Elsewhere, LucasArts clarified its relationship with Bioware, telling IGN "it has nothing to do with Knights of the Old Republic".

The Black sequel rumour was shot down almost simultaneously by a Criterion employee.
