Obsidian Entertainment Pitching New Star Wars Game

Obsidian Entertainment is the developer behind games such as Knight of the Old Republic 2, Fallout: New Vegas, Neverwinter Nights 2 and the upcoming South Park: the Stick of Truth.

The studio has recently pitched another Star Wars RPG game to Disney/LucasArts.  The game they pitched is to be set between Episode III and Episode IV.  They stated that they went with that time period because they “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.”

I don’t know about you, but I would love a Star Wars RPG set in the between period of the first two trilogies!  They seem worried that EA’s lack of success with The Old Republic will hinder their chances, but LucasArts seems interested in the pitch.  They have yet to talk to the big wigs at Disney, but are eagerly awaiting the chance.

Possible Live Action Star Wars Series on ABC Network

It’s pretty common knowledge by now that Lucasfilm was bought out by Disney.  What some people might not know though is the fact that Disney, the ABC network, and now Lucasfilm are all part of the same corporate family.  What does that mean, you ask?  It means that ABC is looking into doing a television program of Star Wars.  Whether that pans out, or whether or not it’ll even be a live action program, will only be know with the passing of time.  Fingers crossed though!
