Bad news: Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, The Old Republic aren’t canon

It’s officially official: BioWare’s Star Wars games aren’t part of Disney’s Star Wars canon.

We’ve known for a while that Disney took an axe to the Extended Universe, instead referring to it as “Legacy”, but whether both Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Star Wars: The Old Republic were chopped from official lore wasn’t clear. It is now.

The news came during a Q&A session where creative executive Pablo Hidalgo made clear where both the 2003 RPG and 2011 MMO stood in regards to canon.

“Are the Old Republic expansions canon?” A fan asked.

Hidalgo replied: “No — BioWare ‘has created their own universe that is so fantastic,’ we’re not going to change it.”
