Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake appeared to be one of the bigger exclusives for PS5 when it was announced in 2021. However, rumors emerged of it being indefinitely on hold and Saber Interactive taking over development over Aspyr Media. It now seems that things could be more dire than initially thought, with the announcement trailer going private on YouTube.
PlayStation also deleted its announcement tweet from September 2021, but you can check out a cached version here. Lucasfilm Games’ tweet is still available with a link to the privated trailer, but it’s not looking good. At best, the project is being rebooted and readied for a re-announcement.
At worst, it could be cancelled. Embracer Group, which owns Saber Interactive and Aspyr Media, has undergone a restructuring lately, closing studios like Volition and reportedly planning to sell Gearbox Entertainment. It wouldn’t be too strange to shutter an expensive project like the remake, but we’ll need to wait for more details. Stay tuned in the meantime.
A legendary story remade for a new generation of players is coming to PlayStation 5 and PC. https://t.co/JdeFhyMG9W
