Knights of the Old Republic remake could still go ahead

Amidst the turmoil facing Embracer, it seems that the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake may still see the light of day. The game was indefinitely delayed last year after the developers working on the remake, Aspyr Media, were removed from the project. However, things took a positive turn earlier today, with the head of Embracer Lars Wingefors refusing to comment on speculation around the game's future.

"I noticed that anything I say to this becomes a headline. So that is my only comment," said Wingefors, however, according to developers at Saber Interactive, the parent company of Aspyr, the game is still in production. According to Bloomberg reporter Jason Schrier, two developers at Saber have confirmed that the game is still alive and well. 

"I've talked to two people at Saber who both say they're still currently working on it, so I don't believe the comment that it isn't being worked on 'in any way' right now is true," said Schreier, adding on Twitter that he "can't say whether the KOTOR Remake will ever actually come out, but yes, two people from Saber Interactive tell me they're still on it, despite recent rumours that nobody is working on the game". 

Schreier also shed some light on the reason why Aspyr was removed from the game, with many speculating that a demo build of the game was of poor quality, however, this apparently isn't the case. "The demo wasn't egregiously bad," he said, adding that "the biggest issue was misalignment between all the parties about scope, and how much progress they could make within a given timeline".  

Despite this, it still seems somewhat unlikely that the remake will ever see the light of day, however, there is some reason for optimism. In the meantime, you can still have a blast on the original with our huge collection of KOTOR mods!
