Sorry to these of you wanting ahead to the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake, but it surely sounds just like the challenge is at a standstill.
Earlier this week on GiantBomb’s Game Mess Mornings, frequent sharer of insider tidbits Jeff Grubb made the declare that the Knights of the Old Republic remake is not being labored on in any form or kind. “This recreation will not be being labored on proper now, full cease,” Grubb stated. “This recreation will not be being labored on in any means, at any studio.” It’s clearly a assured assertion from Grubb, one which like all statements like these needs to be taken with a grain of salt. But it isn’t just like the Knights of the Old Republic has had a very clean time to this point.
Last yr a report claimed that the remake was indefinitely delayed, with each the sport’s artwork director and design director having been fired across the time. Earlier this yr a monetary report implied that it wasn’t precisely useless within the water simply but, although it did not make clear how the challenge was coming alongside. So this current report from Grubb is not precisely essentially the most confidence inspiring one.
Embracer Group, guardian firm of the KOTOR remake’s developer Aspyr, held an earnings presentation earlier this week, the place CEO Lars Wingefors supplied a remark, or I suppose a non-comment, on the state of the sport. As shared by Axios’ Stephen Totilo, when an analyst requested how Embracer Group was feeling in regards to the remake, Wingefors responded, “I discover that something I say to this turns into a headline, so that’s my solely remark.” Again, would not precisely encourage confidence.
The Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake was first introduced two years in the past, and we’ve not heard a factor about it aside from studies of its troubled improvement since then. If the sport does ever come out, it is deliberate for launch on PC and PS5.
