It has been two years since the remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was announced. But since then, few positive reports about the game have come out. Now it is even claimed that no one is working on the game anymore.
It seems possible that the remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is no longer coming out. So claims Jeff Grubb during the Game Mess Mornings podcast. Grubb is not always right, but is now pretty adamant that “there is no way, no studio working on the game.”
This would not be a huge shock, as there have been reports for some time that development was not going smoothly. After dissatisfaction from Disney and Sony, the remake was reportedly taken away from developer Aspyr and moved to Saber Interactive. This was accompanied by an indefinite delay.
Has the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake been cancelled?
There is no official confirmation that the remake is no longer coming. But it does appear that Embracer Group, the parent company of Aspyr and Saber Interactive, no longer wants to talk about the game. At a recent investor meeting, Embracer’s CEO did not want to release anything about the game.
When asked about the game, the CEO only had to report that he had nothing to say. Anything he says about the game becomes the headline of a news story, according to him, so he doesn’t want to say anything more about it. This, of course, gives little confidence that the game is not doing badly.
