Development of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake Halted
Recent developments regarding the remake of "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic" suggest an uncertain future for the project. Initially assigned to Texas-based studio Aspyr, the project reportedly faced setbacks due to unsatisfactory vertical slice assessments from Sony and Lucasfilm Games, leading to Aspyr's removal from the project. The development was then rumored to have been transferred to another Embracer Group subsidiary, presumably Saber Interactive, but it seems this also did not yield the desired results.
Insider Jeff Grubb reported that the updated version of KOTOR, initially announced as a PlayStation 5 exclusive, is currently not in development. "Absolutely no work is being done on the project in any form, in any studio," stated Grubb.
In its latest financial report, the CEO of Embracer Group refrained from commenting on the remake's status, citing a desire to avoid sensational headlines. This has added to the mystery surrounding the current state of the project.
Reports indicate that Sony has started removing mentions of Knights of the Old Republic from social media and YouTube, further fueling rumors of the project's suspension.
The situation with the "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic" remake remains unclear, and it is currently unknown if its development will ever resume. Fans are left waiting for official announcements.
