‘Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic’ Remake ‘Delayed Indefinitely’

Another Star Wars video game project bites the dust...

The hotly-anticipated Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic remake has reportedly been “delayed indefinitely.”

After a build-up of rumors, Sony confirmed last year that a Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake was in the works from Aspyr Media with an announcement trailer featuring Darth Revan. The original 2003 Knights of the Old Republic game is not just considered one of the best Star Wars games ever but one of the franchise’s best stories as well.

However, Bloomberg has shared a disappointing update, reporting that the Knights of the Old Republic remake has been “delayed indefinitely.” Bloomberg cites issues behind-the-scenes at Aspyr as the reason behind the delay.

In July, the studio fired the art and design directors and held meetings focused on finding new projects to work on. Aspyr was looking to have the Star Wars game out this year, but developers found 2025 more realistic. Aspyr also apparently had a demo ready to show Lucasfilm before the news came of the delay.

Is There Still Hope For KOTOR?

There’s still some hope for the Knights of the Old Republic remake to see the light of day since the report notes that Saber Interactive, who joined the project, could take it over from Aspyr. Unfortunately, This isn’t the first Star Wars game to face development issues.

Star Wars 1313 was notably axed when Disney took over Lucasfilm, and EA shut down Amy Henning’s Project Ragtag, but that game might be back in development under Skydance New Media. Despite the setbacks, EA’s Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is coming next year, and Respawn is developing two other games, while Quantum Realm and Ubisoft are also working on projects of their own.
