EA and BioWare have officially announced a new Star War: Knights of the Old Republic game at E3 2008. A third KOTOR game has long been rumoured but this is the first confirmation that EA has given on the subject.

The mega-publisher didn't just stop there though, going so far as to confirm that the next KOTOR game will also be a massively multiplayer online RPG - making it the first Star Wars MMO since the ill-fated Galaxies.

The announcement was made by EA CEO John Riccitiello in a brief interview with

"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," said the ever-slippery Riccitiello.

Thankfully though, Portfolio got straight to the point and flat-out asked the EA super-boss if he was referring to a new KOTOR game. The answer?

"Yes," he said.

There are no real details other than the confirmation, though EA has hinted that the MMO is part of a move to target the PC market more and sidestep consoles.

"Increasingly, people are going to be talking about direct-to-customer in our business," said Riccitiello. "I think we'll be talking about it louder than most."
