Recently, there has been a lot of buzz online about Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake. Fans of the game received conflicting information, through which it is difficult to judge whether the remake is still in development or has been cancelled. Now, in addition, an important person at Disney - the corporation that owns the rights to the Star Wars brand - has spoken out about the remake.

The person in question is Sean Shoptaw, that is, a senior vice president for gaming at the company, who took part in an interview for Axios. As he stated:

"For some, I hope, obvious reasons, I can't talk too much about it, but KotOR is obviously a very popular game that we are incredibly proud of, and we feel there is a lot of demand for it. I won't say more."

From this brief statement one can conclude that the Disney corporation itself cares about the remake of KotOR, because it knows how many gamers are looking forward to it. This suggests that work on the game has not been abandoned, and the "brass" is still pushing for its release. Similar information was recently provided by journalist Jason Schreier, who, unlike Jeff Grubb, claimed, that the game is still being developed.

To date, we have seen only one trailer for the game, which Sony recently marked as private on its YouTube channel, which caused some confusion. There were also disturbing statements about the project from the Embracer Group's CEO, as well as earlier reports regarding work on the project.

Now, however, there is nothing left to do but wait for more official information on the remake of this well-known RPG. Sean Shoptaw's words suggest that there is still hope for the eagerly awaited project.
