The fate of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) game remake, which was announced in 2021, is now uncertain. Recently, Sony, as the main partner (the game will be released on PS5 first), has removed all clips and information about the game.
KOTOR, the original version developed by BioWare in 2003, had its distribution rights held by LucasArts (later known as Lucasfilm Games). They selected Aspyr, a studio under the Embracer Group, to take on the responsibility of remaking the game (BioWare’s founder’s studio, Beamdog, also competed but ultimately lost).
However, just one year after the announcement, in 2022, rumors surfaced that the KOTOR Remake encountered development issues and may need to be passed on to another studio under the Embracer umbrella, Saber Interactive. After that, news about this game went silent.
Recently, someone discovered that all information regarding the game has been completely removed, whether it be posts on the PlayStation Blog, trailers on YouTube, or even tweets from the @PlayStation account. Sony deleted them without any explanation, suggesting that the project may have been canceled.
At the time of writing this news, the name and image of the KOTOR Remake can still be found on Aspyr’s website, but it seems that the website has not been updated for a while now.
TLDR: The highly anticipated remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) has been hit with uncertainties and development issues. Sony has removed all information about the game, leading to speculations of its cancellation. The game’s fate remains unknown, but Aspyr’s website still shows the title and image, although it has not been updated recently.
