If Inxile is making Kotor the that would explain why their budget is higher than Fable and Avowed, the insider at Era also said that Inxile is going to grow massively this year.
Originally I thought they'd be multiplatform but I've put some more thought into it and I've came to the conclusion that LucasArts likely doesn't give a sh*t and are more interested in just finding the right developer, I mean, why would they?
- The license is open now, it won't just be Microsoft making Star Wars titles, there's massive multiplatform publishers like EA and Ubisoft who will be making Star Wars too.
- Microsoft will be funding the majority of the development, Microsoft will be providing the studio, the team, the tech, etc.
- Disney has already done multiple exclusives like Spider-Man, Iron Man VR, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, etc.
Likely if Microsoft makes the best pitch and can offer the best team for the job, Disney will give them the license and not particularly care if it's exclusive or not, cause it isn't like they'll lose any money, very good chance they'll still make a lot of money and they'll be dozens of studios likely working on multiplatform Star Wars anyway, if they do a no-exclusive clause they're just restricting themselves (no Microsoft, no Sony, no Nintendo) and it seems Lucas and Disney have actually realised finally it's better to be open to everything.
