Bloomberg has reported that the previously announced Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake by developer Aspyr Media has been delayed indefinitely.
The project’s art director and design director were recently fired, and its future looks rather bleak. Based on involved individuals’ accounts, “Aspyr told staff and partners it would release the game by the end of 2022, according to two people familiar with production. Developers said a more realistic target now would be 2025.” Further, the title’s demo shown to parties relevant for development was stated to have received a level of time and money that simply was not viable in the long term.
Hopefully, circumstances for this highly-anticipated remake to finally see the light of day. But as for now, you probably shouldn’t hold your breath.
