It's not KOTOR... exactly.

Still eying the 1up live blog, now from the breakouts. I'm starting to glaze over at the details of a PC MMORPG though. It does look like this is going to get developed for console platforms, but they are working on the core design now. At least they didn't say this will definitely be PC only... just that PC is all they are talking about "for now".

So, even though it's within the KOTOR time frame, it isn't actually "KOTOR 3", which I'm glad for, since by it's nature of being an MMORPG, this makes it distinctly *not* KOTOR. Instead, it is Star Wars: The Old Republic, and will be taking place around 300 years after KOTOR (2). Apparently some characters from the KOTOR series may appear if they could weather the 3 centuries.

KOTOR 3 Starts... NOW

Lucas Arts is engaged in a press conference at this very moment, where they are going to reveal the new project they've been working on all this time with BioWare. So we're just waiting on official, official declarations that this is KOTOR 3, MMORPG style. I'm following a live blog of the event over at 1up.com, where "KOTOR 3" has already been used to describe the project twice, as far as I can decipher from Scooter's report.

More when it's really official, official - hopefully with trailers!
