Fans of Star Wars have good reasons to worry about the fate of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake. Therefore, people interested in this project should be happy to hear that the work on the game is actually progressing well.

  1. This information was revealed by the CEO of Saber Interactive, Matthew Karch, in an interview for IGN.
  2. Saber Interactive recently split from the Embracer group, and Karch confirmed that the studio was taking Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake with it.

For now, the devs aren't ready to reveal any specifics about this project. Matthew Karch has assured that the developers are making every effort to ensure that the remake exceeds fans' expectations.

The work on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake had a turbulent course. The project was announced in 2021 and was then developed by Aspyr studio. However, the team clearly had difficulty managing this title - Saber Interactive was brought in to help in 2022, and shortly afterwards there were reports that work on the game had been suspended.

The story of this remake seemed to be over for a while, but it was saved when Saber Interactive took over the project entirely. After that, there was very little talk about the game. In 2023, posts devoted to this title began to disappear from official social media. There were also reports that the work had been halted, although other sources only said that it had been significantly slowed down.

The financial troubles of the Embracer group were a major cause of these turbulences. So in the end, it seems that the game will be saved by Saber Interactive's separation from that corporation. Previous reports indicated that Embracer would continue to play a certain role in the project, but the IGN article implies that following the split of both companies, Saber is now the primary driving force behind this remake.
