    Released in 2003, BioWare's fan-favorite RPG tells a story of Jedi versus Sith set some 4.000 years before the rise of the Galactic Empire, featured in the 1977 film Star Wars.

    Obsidian created a sequel, The Sith Lords, in 2004 and there was no game. Knights of the Old Republic in the mainline in the nearly 17 years since then (unless you count EA's 2011 MMO The Old Republic).

    Last year's entertainment publication Cinelinx cited two sources as saying that a "remake" or "sequel" to KoTOR has presumably been green-lit in Electronic Arts after an earlier attempt to revive the series was shelved by EA.


    Although the original Knights of the Old Republic games were officially dropped from Star Wars following the franchise's acquisition by Disney, there are signs that she is trying to reintroduce elements of the games' story.


    In 2017, some elements of the KoTOR plot were referenced in the animated series Star Wars Rebels, such as the Mandalorian Wars and the ancient Sith planet Malachor. A deleted scene from The Clone Wars was also reportedly set to include Darth Revan do Dirty.



    Later, an art book for the movie Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker contained a reference to a Sith Legion by the name of Revan.

    In 2019, Lucasfilm also announced that it would be releasing a media series exploring the "High Republic Era", which officially takes place several hundred years before the Star Wars films.
