VIDEO GAMES: FALLOUT Developer Pitching New STAR WARS RPG Video Game To Disney

The makers of Fallout: New Vegas and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II are pitching a new Star Wars RPG video game to Disney. Read on for more details.




Obsidian Entertainment CEO Feargus Urquhart has revealed that he was pitching a new Star Wars RPG video game to LucasArt and that he's now pitching the same game to Disney since their acquisition. “I would say it’s within the top three pitches we’ve ever come up with,” said Urquhart.

But don't expect a sequel to Knights of the Old Republic. Instead, the game is said to be set between Episode III and Episode IV. "We pitched a between-Episode III and Episode IV game [to LucasArts]. Because we think that timeframe is super interesting. It’s the fall of the Republic, the extermination of the Jedi, it’s Obi-Wan going off and making sure Luke is OK. You have the Sith, but you have the extermination of all Force users except for very, very few. So it was an interesting time to set a game, and you know, Chris Avellone came up with a really cool story,” Urquhart exclaimed.

LucasArt was very high on the pitch but since the acquisition by Disney, Obsidian has opted to let the fire cool before approaching the House of Mouse. "We really worked on it hard and distilled it down to these eight or ten pages that really sold the story and characters. Then we sold it off to LucasArts and got a call back later that day. They were like, ‘This seems really cool. We want to talk to you guys, like, tomorrow about it.’ We haven’t [talked with Disney yet]. We’re kind of waiting for the smoke to clear. But that’s one of my next big things to do. To kind of go over there and [get the ball rolling again]," the CEO shared.
