Already during last April, Kathleen Kennedy, the CEO of Lucasfilm, confirmed that the company was developing something about the brand Knights of the Old Republic. Without a doubt, this shows how much these games influenced the Star Wars brand because of the great source of innovation that they represented.
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic was developed in 2003 by Bioware. Was situated 4000 years before the rise of the Galactic Empire, and it was much more common to meet Jedi Knights than in the era in which the 9 main episodes are based. Its sequel, Knights of the Old Republic 2, was developed in 2004 by Obsidian Entertainment. In 2017 Bioware was rumored to be conducting a new installment of the subseries DIRTY, but nothing was confirmed.
