There are a lot of Star Wars games out there, but many fans will agree that some of the best titles were the original Knights of the Old Republic RPGs, developed by the then-iconic BioWare studio. Thankfully, an official remake was announced recently, but a new report states that it has now been delayed indefinitely amid a studio shakeup…
According to the report, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake had an internal release date of 2022, but developers at Aspyr believe 2025 is a more realistic launch window. That’s a pretty big discrepancy, and part of the reason that the title has allegedly been delayed indefinitely in order to refocus management.
Apparently, executives at both LucasFilm and Sony were disappointed after seeing a vertical slice demo, and fired several key managers a week later. As such, there are rumors the project will be headed by a new developer, and that Aspyr will go on to seek different projects. Although there was never an official release date announced, it sounds like it will be a little while longer before we get to see anything from the Star Wars KOTOR Remake.
