Drew Karpyshyn Interview At Star Wars Books – Next TOR Book Set After Game

In concert with today’s release of their new Star Wars: The Old Republic novel Revan, Random House via their Suvudu blog has posted a brand new interview with author Drew Karpyshyn.

In the piece, Karpyshyn talks about his work on the Mass Effect series, possible continuation of the Darth Bane story, as well as this little tidbit about another TOR book he’s working on:

Suduvu: Can you reveal anything about next TOR novel you’re writing, currently set for a Fall 2012 release?

Drew Karpyshyn: I can’t really say anything right now, other than that it will take place after the events of the game.

That’s a pretty big tease for fans of The Old Republic right there. What does “after the events of the game” mean, exactly? And will the new story lead into the next chapter of the game, perhaps through an expansion?

In any case, the interview is a great read for Star Wars fans in general as Drew stands up to some great questions, such as the problem with Jedi feeling emotion

Head on over for the full read, and of course make sure you get your own copy of Revan asap!

  1. Would love to hear the Professor’s insight on this interview.
    Particularly on that quote from the book in the middle.

  2. That’s a pretty big tease for fans of The Old Republic right there. What does “after the events of the game” mean, exactly?

    It means exactly what it says. TOR has a conclusion and the book takes place after that conclusion. The question should be how far after does the book take place?

    And will the new story lead into the next chapter of the game, perhaps through an expansion?

    Yes it will either directly (Deceived) or indirectly (Fatal Alliance)
