The status of Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic Remake remains unknown this week, as Lars Wingefors, CEO of Embracer Group, continues to remain tight-lipped on the project.
Asked during the industry giants’s earnings call regarding an update on the project, Wingefors simply commented: “I notice that anything I say to this becomes a headline, so that is my only comment.”
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic was officially announced by Aspyr Media and Sony back in late 2021, although updates on the game have been few and far between. In April 2022, it was reported that development had moved to Saber Interactive, with Bloomberg later reporting the title had been delayed indefinitely.
However, in May of this year it was revealed that Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic Remake was still in active development. More recently, it emerged that references to the game were being removed from the web, which came about due to Sony delisting assets with expired music licenses.
The original Knights of the Old Republic was released for the Xbox back in 2003, and takes place around 4,000 years before the formation of the Galactic Empire. The game was a huge success among critics and players alike, and is often cited as one of the greatest video games ever made.
