Disney Says The Knights Of The Old Republic Remake May Be Made After All?!

The future of the much-anticipated Knights of the Old Republic remake looks uncertain after reports of a troubled development, but Disney is optimistic.



Disney has released a statement on the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake. Previous reports and leaks have claimed that the project’s future is uncertain.

The game, billed as a collaboration between developer Aspyr and production partners Lucasfilm Games and Sony Interactive Entertainment, was announced as a timed PS5 console exclusive in September 2021.

However, the remake has reportedly been plagued by problems in recent years. Recently, there have been conflicting reports about whether the game is still in active development. Some claim that the whole project has been cancelled.

“Not a lot I can say on that point for some hopefully obvious reasons, but KOTOR is obviously an incredibly popular game, one that we are incredibly proud of and think that there’s still a lot of demand for,” Sean Shoptaw, Disney’s head of games, told Axios. Based on this, at least, it doesn’t look like the company has given up on the project. (Regardless of how development actually stands.)

Embracer-owned studios Aspyr and Saber Interactive confirmed in May 2022 that they are working on the game. It was later confirmed that Saber had taken over the remake’s development. However, internal tensions and conflicts have arisen. But the company’s head of games said the Xbox omission didn’t seem “too outlandish”.

Last month it was claimed that the game was no longer in active development. However, Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier said he had heard that this was not true.

“Can’t say whether the KoTOR Remake will ever actually come out, but yes, two people from Saber Interactive tell me they’re still on it, despite recent rumours that nobody is working on the game,” he said.
