BioWare's Writing Director for The Old Republic Daniel Erickson commented that the storyline of the KOTOR series will appear in a smaller or bigger degree in the game.
“There are going to be a great deal of questions answered from KOTOR 1 and KOTOR 2 in our game.”But there is something even more interesting: Erickson refused to answer when asked on the presence in the game of Revan and/or The Exile which opens up a possibility for it... doesn't it? Regardless of the 300 year difference between KOTOR and The Old Republic i'm sure they could find ways... Revan is a Sith that has unnaturally lengthened life, or appear as spirits... Just some ideas! THAT would be awesome.
“The thing with KOTOR 2 is that it was a very Jedi-specific plot. The Jedi were very much ravaged by it, and we talk about that in the timeline – trying to rebuild the Jedi. But it was not as large a galactic piece. So there are a lot of factions and things that aren’t actually affected by it.”
Is Revan a woman or a man? ;-)
