BioWare’s 2003 RPG Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is still widely considered among the greatest games of its era, so when a ground-up remake of the title was announced in 2021, there was naturally no shortage of excitement around it. Last year, however, reports claimed that the remake’s development had been put on hold with developer Aspyr Media being taken off the project, with later reports stating that parent company Embracer Group had instead put Saber Interactive in charge of development.
Official communication on the project and its development, however, has been close to nonexistent for some time now- and it doesn’t seem like that’ll be changing anytime soon. As reported by Axios’ Stephen Totilo on Twitter, when asked in a recent Q&A with investors about Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake and the state of its development, Embracer Group CEO Lars Wingefors refused to provide a comment, saying, “[My] favorite question. I have no further comments.”
Meanwhile, in Embracer Group’s recently published fiscal report, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake is still listed among titles that are officially confirmed to be in development right now, as of May 24, 2023.
Upon its announcement, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake was confirmed to be a PS5 and PC title, though a release date wasn’t provided.
