Knights of The Old Republic Remake Release Date speculation
The Knights of the Old Republic Remake doesn’t have a release date yet.
Originally it seemed like a release in 2023 or 2024 was possible. However, the project is now on pause at Aspyr as the company fired the game’s art director, Jason Minor, and design director, Brad Prince, of the game abruptly.
This news came from Bloomberg, which states that the company is now looking for new contracts and development opportunities while work on the Knights of the Old Republic Remake is on hold.
This reportedly came after a vertical slice and gameplay demo was shown to Sony and Lucasfilm on June 30, with the developers feeling “excited about it” and the game. But the heads of the studio heads reportedly said that the slice “wasn’t where they wanted it to be and that the project would be passed”.
The project’s current course reportedly wasn’t sustainable with a large amount of money put into the vertical slice. So now, a more realistic release date for the game is reportedly 2025, which is a huge delay.
Saber Interactive has taken over the development of the game it seems, but it still would be surprising to see the game before 2025, as the studio will likely need to make some adjustments as they join the project mid-way through its development.
Knights of the Old Republic Remake Platforms
The KOTOR Remake platforms will initially include PC and PS5. There hasn’t been an announcement of a Knights of the Old Republic Remake Xbox release yet, but if it does come to Xbox Series X|S, the game will likely be announced after its initial release on other platforms.
