As EA confirmed today, the next Knights of the Old Republic is going to be a MMO. From Portfolio.com:

"We've got two of the most compelling MMOs in the industry in development," said Riccitiello. The first title, based on the Warhammer property, will launch soon. "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."

Does Riccitiello mean the oft rumored Knights of the Old Republic Online? "Yes," he said.

I loved both previous KOTOR games (hated the rushjob ending on the sequel), and I'd give this a shot, but only if it heads to the consoles.

PC gaming, once a cornerstone of my gaming diet in my younger days just isn't as comfortable as gaming on my couch, in front of an HDTV, yelling at my buddies via headest. I suppose we could be downing monsters in WoW, but many of us switched to Macs and it's tough to convince casuals to hop on the WoW bandwagon with such a geek factor associated with it.

KOTOR MMO could be cool though, and I'm still keeping a candle burning for AoC being sweet when it heads to the 360.
