Star Wars may be heading back to the Old Republic - both in film and games!
There are rumours swirling around that the next series of Star Wars films may be entering production later this year with Game of Thrones showrunners D.B.Weiss and David Benioff kicking off their first project. Rumours suggest that this new series could be set hundreds of years before the Skywalker saga placing it firmly within the realms of the 'Old Republic'.
This is an interesting development and might suit Weiss and Benioff well; bringing a Game of Thrones / Lord of the Rings vibe to the Star Wars universe and would be a stark departure from previous Star Wars stories.
Not only this, but we've seen a number of job listings, first reported on PCGamesN for Lucasfilm Games - it seems that Disney may be looking to take more control over their gaming properties in the future and there's been more than one rumour that the first project might well be a new instalment or maybe more likely a reboot of the Knights of the Old Republic series.
We wouldn't be surprised if these projects are developed in tandem allowing Disney to capitalise across media for this new Star Wars property and allowing for a new canon take on Star Wars history.
