Star Wars fans lost their minds last September when Aspyr announced that they would be remaking the classic Knights of the Old Republic, and though fans were expecting an update soon, this new bit of news from Bloomberg isn’t really what they expected.
As it turns out, the remake of Knights of the Old Republic has been delayed indefinitely, and Aspyr media has gone so far as to fire the game’s art director as well as design director. The KOTOR remake was said to have been in development for three years, and after a recent demo with Lucasfilm and Sony, the game was put on hold and two people were fired from the team.
We don’t have any specifics as to why the game was delayed, but some sources say that it could have something to do with the time of development. Though the game was expected to come out sometime near the end of the year, developers said that a more realistic target for the release of KOTOR would be 2025.
Since the fate of the game is indefinite, we don’t know what the future holds for development. It’s possible that a completely different studio will take over, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. After all the hype surrounding the announcement, you would think that a KOTOR remake would be in the very top of Lucasfilm Games’ list of priorities.
No release date has been set for the remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
