Rumours about a remake of BioWare’s beloved RPG Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic have been doing the rounds for a while, with a leak earlier this year claiming that Aspyr Media is currently working on that project. Now that’s been officially confirmed.
Sony kicked off PlayStation Showcase with a pretty significant announcement, confirming that Aspyr Media is working on a groud-up remake, called Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake, for the PS5. No details or launch date have been shared yet, with the trailer being a cinematic one featuring some good old Star Wars music and ending with a reveal of Revan’s face. Check it out below.
Over the last few years, Aspyr Media has worked on ports of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Knights of the Old Republic 2, Star Wars: Jedi Knight – Jedi Academy, Star Wars: Jedi Knight 2 – Jedi Outcast, Star Wars: Episode I – Racer, Star Wars: Republic Commando, and more. Aspyr Media was acquired earlier this year by Embracer Group.
