KOTOR MMO on the Way

UPDATE: Portfoli.com and Riccitiello have confirmed that it is indeed KOTOR and it is an MMO.

The folks over at Portfolio.com dug up a bit of interesting information in an interview with John Riccitiello, chief executive at EA, this week during E3. Riccitiello stated that:
"We've got two of the most compelling MMOs in the industry in development...And the one that people are dying for us to talk to them about -- in partnership with Lucas, coming out of BioWare, which is, I think, quite possibly the most anticipated game, full stop, for the industry at the point when we get closer to telling you about it."

Well anyone with half a video game brain can put two and two together. LucasArts, the studio behind anything Star Wars, and BioWare , the studio behind the Knights of the Old Republic series coming together to create an MMO. What could it be?

Fans of the KOTOR series have been yearning for a new game since the second ended and an MMO would bring the game back in style. Bioware has had great success since KOTOR with last years' Mass Effect, and is hitting their full stride this gen. Hopefully an announcement or trailer of some sort is not too far off!
