Death.

It would be nice.

No. As far as we know, KOTOR is still canon. Two primary reasons:

  1. SWTOR is still a thing, which is run by BioWare, which is owned by EA - the guys running the gaming end of Star Wars now.
  2. Darth Bane is canon, because of his appearance in TCW. Darth Bane has some ties to Revan; naming his holocron and inspiration for the Rule of Two.

As far as we know, only the things taking place after VI are non-canon. The rest is unclear. The Old Republic shouldn't need altering.

KotOR isn't canon. Absolutely nothing minus the film, film-based sources, and TCW, as well as any new EU material, are canon in the current SW universe. KotOR is in the Legends universe.

Revan doesn't exist. The TCW Darth Bane is not the same as the Darth Bane from PoD. In fact, the sole mentioning of one of Bane's apprentices doesn't mean Zannah exists. It would be entirely possible for Legends characters to develop a new name and character for Bane's apprentice (though I doubt they would).

I recall a statement not long ago that it was still up in the air.

Here's a radical idea: let artists express themselves in any way they damn well want and if you don't like it, do your own or don't buy it or just, ya know, shut up XD

Also, this.

Some characters are religious, some are not. It's rather simple.

I'd be honestly happy, except for one lingering question: what is the bloody point since the whole EU is now turned into Legends?

Shouldn't this KOTOR being an reboot or something to fit Disney/Jar Jar Abrams' new agenda?

That said, how's this gonna work? Aren't the KOTOR games non-canon now? Can you still produce content set in the EU? Or would this be some kind of reboot?

Wow. Who cares? Like seriously, does it matter ANYTHING that KOTOR is "noncanon"?

I never considered them canon anyway.They were Star Wars games in name yes, but the themes, the plots, and characters don't fit inside Lucas' vision, universe, and tone any more than the factions and characters from something like Fallout.

That's... not actually true. Whether Lucas likes it or not, the EU is incorporated into the movies; the double-bladed lightsaber, the name Coruscant, Aayla Secura, the Great Hyperspace War, etc. Also, Darth Bane is canon, so it is likely that KOTOR is canon (Bane learned from Revan's holocron).

There's already a thread about this; I'm too lazy to find it.
