Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake Releasing is “Absolutely Not Coming This Year” – Schreier

Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic Remake

The Embracer Group recently revealed that one of its triple-A projects had shifted development to another internal studio. Given previous reports of development troubles for the same, Aspyr’s Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake was assumed to be that project. Though the media holding company said there were no material delays, the chances of the remake anytime soon are still non-existent.

On Twitter, Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier responded to a PC Gamer story about it potentially launching this year with, “The Knights of the Old Republic remake is absolutely not coming this year.” When another user responded that it could arrive in 2024, Schreier responded, “Even 2024 is wishful thinking unless they pare down the scope of the project.”

Announced for PS5 and PC, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake faced an indefinite internal delay apparently following a disappointing vertical slice. Sources at the studio felt that Saber Interactive, which acted as a supporting team on the remake, would take over its development, but this has yet to be confirmed. The same sources felt that 2025 was a more realistic launch window, so we’ll need to stay tuned for more details.
