It’s one of the most talked-about topics in gaming, and it shares mythical status akin to that of Half-Life 3 – it’s the KOTOR remake. For years, there have been rumours and suggestions that the game will surface, but as time goes on, it’s becoming less and less likely that it actually will. Despite that fact, a recent report released by the Embracer Group seems to suggest that the KOTOR remake is still in development, even if the company has nothing to say about it.
It was just a couple of days ago that Embracer’s CEO was grilled on the KOTOR remake and offered absolutely nothing by way of a response. In two months, it’s the twenty-year anniversary of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – could it be the best date possible for a reveal of the project that everybody wants to hear about?
Trust in the Force
In the year-end report published by the Embracer Group, there was a section that detailed all games both released and in development “as of May 24, 2023.”
This section included the likes of Tomb Raider (Final Title TBC), Warhammaer 40,000: Space Marine II, Remnant 2, Ride 5, and of course, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Remake.
It was stated that this in-development product will be released on PC and PlayStation 5 platforms and that its development is being led by an ‘Internal’ studio, but that was all that we can glean from the report.
If you’re interested in checking out the Embracer Group report, we’d recommend doing so. Outside of the KOTOR remake, it offers up telling information about the performance of Embracer and all its associated subsidiaries, and talks about the state of the various gaming markets around the world. It’s a good read.
