Riccitiello confirms KOTOR MMO

"The most anticipated game in the industry."

EA boss John Riccitiello has finally confirmed that a Knights of the Old Republic MMO is in development at BioWare.

"We've got two of the most compelling MMOs in the industry in development," Riccitiello told Portfolio at E3. "The first title, based on the Warhammer property, will launch soon.

"And the one that people are dying for us to talk to them about - in partnership with LucasArts, coming out of BioWare, which is, I think, quite possibly the most anticipated game, full stop, for the industry, is at the point where we get closer to telling you about it."

When asked directly if this was the Knights of the Old Republic MMO, Riccitiello said "yes" .

BioWare Austin will presumably be the studio behind it, and has been working on an online project since early 2006.

Details, dates, and platforms are yet to be issued.
