Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake Is Dead
The Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake is dead. At least, that’s what Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb had to say on Friday morning during his Game Mess Mornings show.
“I just want to clear it up, this game is not being worked on right now,” Grubb said around the 57-minute mark. “Just full stop. This game is not being worked on in any way, at any studio.”
Originally announced back in 2021, the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake has been through development turmoil from the start. It was first in development by Aspyr Media before Embracer Group shifted the game over to Saber Interactive in August 2022.
During his show, Grubb also mentioned that the game may have even been moved away from Saber Interactive as well.
Since the announcement of moving away from Aspyr Media, nothing has been said by anyone involved about the state of the game. The only thing that has happened recently is the scrubbing of social media and YouTube by Sony removing mentions of the game. Even during quarterly earnings calls, Embracer Group failed to confirm that the game was still making progress.
“I notice that anything I say to this becomes a headline, so that is my only comment,” Embracer CEO Lars Wingefors said during the most recent earnings call on Thursday.
Insider Gaming has reached out to Embracer Group and Saber Interactive for comment on the status of the game. Those requests have yet to receive a response as of publishing.
